Studying intelligence orgs and mafias
The study of the history of intelligence orgs, and here the CIA is a useful sideline, no more, to a question, which can’t be so easily studied: the emergence and spread of ‘esoteric’ criminal pseudo-sufism in the Islamic context, and geo-zones, overlapping with Tibet.
This thought came to me leafing through,
Uncloaking the CIA, ed. Howard Frazier,
at the library.
