For example, Blind Man's Bluff: The Untold Story of American Submarine Espionage was wrong on a few points and misinterpreted a few others, but revealed to way too many people things they had no useful business knowing.
I was talking to a BTDT guy I work with the other day about this. Hes always taken aback when he hears things thrown around freely, things he was told he was never allowed to talk about.
It's like I'm playing cards with my brother's kids..
