The largest and most important intelligence agencies — like the US National Security Agency — are often those with the least amount of public scrutiny and accountability. Today on Democracy Now! we get a rare look inside the US and Canadian spy network with a former Canadian intelligence officer who has come in the from the cold.

For two decades, Mike Frost worked for Canada’s Communications Security Establishment or CSE, the Canadian equivalent of the National Security Agency or NSA. He recently wrote the cover article in this winter’s issue of Covert Action Quarterly. The piece is called "Inside the US-Canada Spyworld: Second Thoughts from the Second Oldest Profession."
