"In Code Name Kindred Spirit, Trulock, who was director of intelligence at the U.S. Department of Energy through the 1990s, takes us inside one of the major spy scandals of recent years. In spellbinding detail, he recounts how he came to suspect that Chinese agents were compromising America's nuclear security and how his disturbing discoveries were rationalised by the bureaucrats more anxious to protect themselves than to deal with the problem. Trulock tried to warn the President and Congress of what he had discovered. When his warnings were ignored, he blew the whistle, and the Wen Ho Lee affair erupted in the nation's press, creating a domestic crisis fro the Clinton administration and forcing it finally to address the matter of security breaches in America's top-secret nuclear weapons program."
