News headlines daily declare the attempts at spying by Putin’s intelligence apparatus. But what of the American C.I.A.? Espionage certainly is among the activities of America’s premier intelligence agency. Who are the more effective spies? What are their targets? Come to the Library to join a discussion with former intelligence officer, Ira Cooperman, on how Russia and the U.S. compete in the field of espionage.
Ira Cooperman is a former intelligence officer who has worked with CIA, NSA and the military during the Vietnam War, was a reporter for “The Los Angeles Times,” and has taught National Security courses for over 10 years at the Chautauqua Institution. A member of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers, he is a graduate of San Francisco State University, has lectured at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and the State University of New York.
