I'll be the Amazon algorithm:

If you liked this book, you might like Ann Finkbeiner, The Jasons: The Secret History of Science's Postwar Elite. It explores the panel of the leading scientists who, from the 1950s through the 1980s, provided scientific knowledge at the highest levels to the office of the president for solving, or at least thinking about, problems that related to national security. Igloo White, which you mention in your summation, connects to the JASONS as well.

Also, I'd recommend (though drier) Jeffrey T. Richelson, The Wizards of Langley: Inside the CIA's Directorate of Science and Technology. Different stories, organizational as well as "newly declassified revelations!" approach, much less breathless than a journalist's fast writeup.
