The President's Book of Secrets: The Untold Story of Intelligence Briefings to American Presidents from Kennedy to Obama
A conversation with author David Priess
Author David Priess will join a national World Affairs Council audience for a timely conference call Thursday, January 19, at 11:00-11:30 PM PT, to discuss The President's Book of Secrets: The Untold Story of Intelligence Briefings to American Presidents from Kennedy to Obama. Published last March, the book comes out in paperback this month.
Register for the call
Every day, the President receives a report revealing the most sensitive intelligence reporting and analysis of world events: the President's Daily Brief, or PDB. As has been widely reported, President-elect Trump has largely rebuffed intelligence briefers since his election win. See the Jan. 3 piece by Jennifer Rubin, a conservative writer whose "Right Turn" column appears in the Washington Post.
Dr. David Priess served during the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush administrations as an award-winning intelligence officer, manager, and daily intelligence briefer at the CIA as well as a desk officer at the State Department (full bio).
