Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author Ron Suskind takes you deep inside America’s real battles in the “war on terror,” in a riveting work of narrative nonfiction, filled with exclusive, historically significant disclosures that will echo across America and the world

The One Percent Doctrine is the deeply classified core of America’s real playbook: a default strategy, designed by Dick Cheney, that has driven everything—from war in Afghanistan to war in Iraq to the global search for jihadists—since September 11, 2001. Suskind tells us what actually occurred over the next three years by tracing the steps of the officials who oversee the “war on terror” and the men and women who are actually fighting the fight. The internal battles between these two teams reveal everything about what America faces, and what it has done, in this age of terror.

Who is actually running US foreign policy? Is there an operational cell, armed with WMDs, inside the United States? Have some of the world's most dangerous terrorists—including leaders of al Qaeda—been caught and accidentally released? Can America prevail in this struggle against enemies who are patient, ingenious, certain, and have clear tactical advantage?

With the unparalleled access to senior officials, past and present, that made The Price of Loyalty a #1 bestseller, Ron Suskind finally answers the questions that keep Americans awake at night, and reframes the debates that roil the globe.

    " A good inside look at the initial response to the 9/11 attacks and America's evolving effort to fight terrorism. Reveals frighteningly clearly why the Bush Adm., with Cheney as the puppetmaster, dragged us into the morasse we're in. "

    " This may be my last war/9/11/Bush/Cheney book for a while. I'm starting to feel like a masochist. This book has all the gory details of Cheney's nefariousness, his determination to invade Iraq regardless of the fact that we knew Hussein did not have WMD, his determination to tell the world he did anyway, his elevation of action without reason or evidence to support it to policy, his insistence on corrupting the CIA and FBI and national security council to his ends, again regardless of fact etc. etc. And that's not even to mention how truly defenseless he knew the country to be against any real threat of terrorism -- either from loose nukes, or easily planted chemical weapons, or whatever. Enough. "

    " Great book with deeply disappointing content. It's one thing to ignore data in the course of making decisions. It's even worse to shed data that diminishes your view. I get how people were scared, how a one percent probability of an existential threat is "hard math" but this is beyond the pale. "

    " Lots of inside information, but kind of boring if you are not really into intellegence issues and iformation gathering. "
