The story analyzes the cooperation between CIA and American academia to solve intelligence problems. Some scholars, like Bruce Cummings (University of Chicago) and David Gibbs (University of Arizona) criticize this cooperation. The cooperation grants scholars access to classified information. The intelligence-academia relationship is sometimes a source of conflict; some universities have explicit rules that forbid faculty members to conduct classified research, and one of the most controversial CIA policies is "its insistence that scholars sign a lifetime secrecy agreement before receiving a security clearance", Mooney says. Contrary to Cummings and Gibbs' opinion, Joseph Nye (Dean of the Harvard Kennedy School) says his intelligence ties with CIA, State Dept., Defense Dept. and National Security Council have not prejudiced his scholarship.
