Some of the info is now out of date but the punchline is basically that all the main secret services have kept themselves in a job at the end of the cold war by talking up the threat from terrorism.
It explains the new role that secret services have found themselves in since 9/11 and discusses these organisations and how they operate on the fringes of the law in many cases.
it would be nice to be recommended something up to date on this subject (global intelligence/security)
