John Hadden Sr. was a career CIA officer, station chief in Tel Aviv, and colleague of counterintelligence chief James Angleton.
John Hadden Jr. was a college dropout, Shakespearean actor, and curious about his father’s life in secret intelligence. So he started asking him some questions with a tape recorder running.
The result is “Conversations with Masked Man,” going on sale today, an intimate story of family espionage that explores the legacy of secrets, familial and political.

Good Daily Beast story on Angleton, http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/02/27/my-lunch-with-the-spider-who-nearly-wrecked-the-cia.html
Good article on Salon, ““Dominated” by the CIA: The national security state is more entrenched than ever — and leakers like Edward Snowden are its only obstacle.”
Mentions Truman’s post 11/22 WaPo article on the CIA: http://www.salon.com/2016/02/12/dominated_by_the_cia_the_national_security_state_is_more_entrenched_than_ever_and_leakers_like_edward_snowden_are_its_only_obstacle/
