Summary
As a general rule, says Olson (intelligence and national security, Texas A&M U.), the politicos tell the spies just to get the goods and be quiet about how they got them. He believes this attitude is unhelpful, and is not how the US should be conducting itself. He argues that deciding what is acceptable moral behavior in any operational situation is too heavy a burden to be placed on individual officers or even their supervisors or other senior officials, and that clear guidelines should be debated and established by a body answerable to the public.
