From a top level operative in the counterterrorism unit of the CIA comes an explosive memoir about the behind-the-scenes fight against Al Qa'ida after September 11.

Osama Bin Laden’s death is the culmination of years of covert operations and tactics largely overseen by Jose Rodriguez from 2001 to late 2007. During Rodriguez's at times controversial tenure as Chief Operations Officer of the Counterterrorism Center, CIA officers captured and detained senior Al Qa'ida operatives and implemented Enhanced Interrogation Techniques, which were an integral part of the War on Terror. HARD MEASURES will examine how the current political climate and resultant policies have negatively impacted the CIA’s efficiency and taken away the mechanisms that made feats like the successful Bin Laden operation possible.

Rodriguez shares his unlikely journey from an upbringing in three Latin American countries to law school student, to CIA recruit and finally, at the end of a thirty-one year career, to being America's top spy. He sparked controversy and a three year investigation by his decision to order the destruction of videotapes showing CIA officers conducting harsh, but what he describes as "legal, necessary and effective interrogation."
