Sam hosts author Scott Anderson to talk about his new book, "The Quiet Americans: Four CIA Spies at the Dawn of the Cold War — A Tragedy In Three Acts." In this book, Anderson chronicles the exploits of the CIA’s four original spies: Michael Burke, Frank Wisner, Peter Sichel and Edward Lansdale, from their glamorous double lives to their operations to contain the spread of communism. In many cases, he believes, the CIA went too far in tampering with other countries' governments and permanently damaged America's moral standing.
