Transcript from ‘MI5 Spies, Lies & Whistleblowers’ podcast
Annie – ,The key point is to get the balancing act of oversight and accountability within the country from which they’re operating. I’m not trying to say they’re all evil. Rogue elements that go ahead and do things without trying to get accountability, create the problem. Intelligence agencies are operating outside government and democratic control. That means they can commit crimes with impunity.
If you’re talking about 9/11, I presume you are, David was very outspoken about that. I did take an interest in the very shallow waters around that and some very credible people came out of the intelligence agencies.
