Recommended Viewing: The Assets

Last week in comments, Shaker DesertRose recommended a miniseries, available on Netflix, called The Assets, which is about the CIA agents—primarily two women, who later wrote a book on which the series is based—who ferreted out their colleague Aldrich Ames, one of the U.S.'s most damaging traitors who sold secrets to Russia.

It is an excellent series—and timely, too, for obvious reasons.

It's also an extraordinary document about how a white man was able to do incredible harm to the nation, because people refused to listen to women.

Anyway. My profound thanks to DesertRose for the heads-up, and I strongly recommend it to those who are able to watch it.
