Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Mark Mazzetti reveals how the CIA transformed from a spy outfit into a paramilitary organization focused on controversial targeted killings. In his new book "The Way of the Knife," Mazzetti talks about the increased use of drone strikes, and how the U.S. military is taking on more of the CIA's intelligence and information-gathering role.
