THE RISE AND FALL OF THE CIA by Bob Short
5 Sessions, Tuesday, September 24 – October 22, 3:15 pm – 5:15 pm
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is America's premier intelligence organization charged with the responsibility of keeping constant watch in an increasing dangerous and unstable world. Award winning historian and author Bob Short will discuss the rise and fall of this sometimes controversial agency.
After retiring in 2001, Bob Short returned to his native north Georgia mountains to concentrate on preserving Georgia's political history. He became the creator of an oral history series entitled "Reflections on Georgia Politics" for Young Harris College's Zell and Shirley Miller Library and the Richard B. Russell Library For Political Studies and Research at the University of Georgia.
