In this month’s feature-length subscriber podcast I analyse the Hulu TV drama The Looming Tower (based on the original book by Lawrence Wright). It tells the story of the intelligence breakdown between the CIA’s Alec Station and the FBI’s I-49 squad in the run-up to 9/11, honing in on the tetchy relationship between the FBI’s John O’Neill and the CIA’s Michael Scheuer. I discuss what the series gets right and what it gets wrong, and present my argument for why it is CIA propaganda disguised as CIA criticism.
