Washington Post columnist David Ignatius has covered the U.S. intelligence community for decades. And for nearly that long he’s transformed the true stories of his reporting into thrilling tales that explore some of the biggest international issues of the day.

They discussed the book – and current events, like election security and what the coronavirus means for the intelligence community.
