Do spies protect our lives? Our intelligence failed to warn us about the advent of the Yom Kippur War. A famous Polish spy hanged himself before the outbreak of World War II, because no one wanted to hear the bad news he brought about German might and intentions.

Accordingly, CIA man Joseph Wilson went to Niger to verify Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein’s uranium purchases. He found nothing, but this was not what his superiors wanted to hear. Once he published an op-ed in The New York Times accusing America of invading Iraq on false pretenses, both he and his wife, Valerie Plame, also a CIA official, were severely punished.
