Book Commentary: Legacy of Ashes

The overall approach taken by Weiner is to interpret practically any Soviet operation or activity in which CIA was ever engaged as having been a failure, or actually run against CIA by the KGB. He does describe the operationally disastrous acceptance of Golitsyn's paranoid theories for 12 years and mishandling of the Nosenko case, by Angleton and the Soviet Division, correctly, and Helms' failure to oversee their actions.
