The CIA Then and Now, and the Role of Dick Cheney

Hosted by

Today, the CIA released 693 pages of reports about 25 years of illegal activities during the 1950's, 60's and 70's, a report nick-named "Family Jewels." It tells of illegal wiretaps and domestic surveillance, assassination plots and human experimentation. CIA Director, General Michael Hayden, calls it, "a glimpse of a very different time and a very different Agency."  What are the differences -- and similarities -- between then and now, with Dick Cheney the President's "go-to guy" on intelligence?
