Our American Cousins details the various intelligence services of the United States and their actions both at home and abroad. The 1970s were a tumultuous time for the US, filled with proxy wars, foreign revolutions and terrorism. The last days of the Vietnam War, the rise in domestic extremism, covert operations in trouble spots around the globe and increased scrutiny from Congress made this a tense and dangerous time for the American intelligence community.
