The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of my Father CIA Director William Colby. A son’s riveting look at a father whose life seemed straight out of a spy thriller, THE MAN NOBODY KNEW uncovers the secret world of legendary CIA spymaster William Colby. Told by Colby’s son Carl, the story is at once a probing history of the CIA, a personal memoir of a family living in clandestine shadows, and an inquiry into the hard costs of a nation’s most cloaked actions.

The Reason

It is the responsibility of the American people and their representatives in Congress to assure that covert actions by intelligence agencies are of the kinds and in the geographic areas that are consistent with the will and values of the American people.

It is too easy to avoid that responsibility and to allow intelligence agencies’ covert actions to go unchallenged and not understood and remain at the direction of the executive branch. The result, as seen in THE MAN NOBODY KNEW, is a weakening both of the American democracy and of its ability to gain intelligence and perform necessary covert action.

One example that it is irresponsible of the American people and of Congress not to understand the use of targeted drone assassinations.
