CIA, Pentagon Missions Increasingly Blurred (WBUR Boston Public Rado)

Alex Constantine - December 9, 2012

The Central Intelligence Agency is supposed to do the nation’s spying but the line between the CIA and the Pentagon is increasingly blurry.

The Pentagon is assembling an espionage network that will rival the spooks who operate out of CIA headquarters in Langley, Va.

This effort reflects President Barack Obama’s affinity for covert action over conventional force, and the changing nature of the threats against the U.S. since the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Meantime, CIA drones now account for the majority of deadly U.S. operations outside the Afghan war zone, according to The Washington Post.
