In this episode, we chat with a former CIA analyst about Egypt.... its relationship with the U.S.... what it was like to monitor fast-moving events of the Arab Spring for the CIA.... whether the $1.3 B in annual military assistance the U.S. sends to Egypt is disproportionate.... U.S. contributions to Egyptian health & hygiene... the CIA as a bureaucracy.... and more.
