In the face of a President who lobs accusations without facts, evidence, or logic, US truth tellers are under attack. American Intelligence - the ultimate truth teller - has a responsibility in a post-truth world beyond merely warning of external dangers, and in The Assault on Intelligence, General Michael Hayden takes up that urgent work with profound passion, insight and authority. He shows just how crippled the US has become in its capacity to address fundamental global changes, and points toward a series of effective responses. Because when a country loses its intelligence, democracy dies.

Should be required reading for all voters. If you have followed the national political scene closely since 2016, some chapters may be repetitive. But it does do a good job of placing it all in an order and context to clarify things. I would have much rather have read the book than watched the news these last two years. The last two chapters are worth reading twice even if you have followed the news. They give some great insight into work into American politics done by the Russians as well as what the future holds in terms of truth in our society.
