Beschreibung

In his explosive New York Times best seller, top CIA operative Robert Baer paints a chilling picture of how terrorism works on the inside and provides startling evidence of how Washington politics sabotaged the CIA's efforts to root out the world's deadliest terrorists, allowing for the rise of Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda and the continued entrenchment of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. A veteran case officer in the CIA's Directorate of Operations in the Middle East, Baer witnessed the rise of terrorism first hand and the CIA's inadequate response to it, leading to the attacks of September 11, 2001. This riveting book is both an indictment of an agency that lost its way and an unprecedented look at the roots of modern terrorism, and includes a new afterword in which Baer speaks out about the American war on terrorism and its profound implications throughout the Middle East.

Interesting, but discomforting

Interesting account! Occasionaly I wonder, if the author was really so naive as to believe certain things. It makes me think that it takes a rather specific mind set to get involved with an organisation (even a governmental one) that uses and abuses its employees in a rather cold nosed manner for years and years at end. This really being no state secret! It has been said before. If what Baer writes is true, that is a sad thing for the US. His book serves more as a warning then an encouragement to potential recruits and shifts a bad light on his country's services and political leadership. I am always a bit sceptical with this type of revelation book.
