Publisher's Summary

Pulitzer Prize winner Tim Weiner and multi-ethnic author Greg Sarris on this archive edition of Fresh Air. Congress has decided to conduct a study of the role of the Central Intelligence Agency in the post-Cold War world. The agency suffered a shake-up following the discovery of the double agent Aldrich Ames. Weiner, who writes about the CIA for The New York Times, talks about what changes may take place in the agency as a result of the investigation. Sarris is part American Indian, Filipino, and Jewish, and was raised in both Indian and white families. He has written two books related to his experiences growing up: Grand Avenue, a collection of short stories about whites and Native Americans tied by a common ancestor; and Mabel McKay: Weaving the Dream, a biography of Sarris' aunt, a world-renowned basket weaver. (Original Broadcast Date: October 3, 1994)
