Guam - What we know about the CIA is typically limited to what we see on TV and in the movies, but today before Rotarians, a former CIA officer speaks out about the Central Intelligence Agency post 9/11.

Lisa Chambers, now a Guam resident working in the private sector, explained how the terrorist attacks improved ties between the military and the CIA.

"I don't think we're a better country because of 9/11. I think we're a different country. I don't think that 9/11 in any way shape or form can ever be looked at as a good event but I think that its made us a stronger country and I think that its changed the way we collect intelligence and how we use it," she shared.

For those who want to know more about the work of the CIA, Chambers recommends the book Hard Measures: How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives co-authored by her former bosses, Jose Rodriguez and Bill Harlow.
