John le Carre’s words

Columnist Roger Cohen invokes le Carre in the context of Quds Force and Iran:

Instead, I refer the White House to the wisdom of Bill Haydon, the traitor in John le Carre’s “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.” Haydon recognized that intelligence services are not rogue agencies, but “the only real measure of a nation’s political health, the only real expression of its subconscious.”[WaPo]

Think Inter Services Intelligence and Pakistan.
