Since its creation in the late 1940s, the CIA has changed from a relatively limited intelligence agency to a big player in America's military complex. 

On Tuesday's Up to Date, Steve Kraske sits down with ex-CIA analyst Mel Goodman to talk about the changing role of the CIA throughout history. We'll discuss how different presidents transformed the powers and operations of the agency during the Cold War, the War on Terror, and today.
