Sherman Tylawsky

Throughout the Cold War, a war of espionage raged between the U.S. and Soviet Union. While espionage may not always be like James Bond or The X-Files, there is still much below the surface that defines global competition of power and ideas. James Olson is a veteran of the CIA's clandestine service and former Chief of Counterintelligence at the CIA Headquarters in Langley, VA. This week, he shares with us an overview of the turbulent history surrounding U.S. counterintelligence, including personal experiences and thoughts about encountering and catching some of America's worst traitors in history.
