In his explosive New
York Times bestseller, 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. Download and start listening now!
