Kessler takes you inside the war rooms of this battle--from the newly created National Counterterrorism Center to FBI headquarters, from the CIA to the National Security Agency, from the Pentagon to the Oval Ofﬁce--to explain why we have gone so long since 9/11 without a successful attack and to reveal the many close calls we never hear about. The race to stop the terrorists, Kessler shows, is more desperate than ever.Based on exclusive interviews with FBI Director Robert Mueller, CIA Director Michael Hayden, White House Counterterrorism Chief Fran Townsend, and dozens of key intelligence operatives at all levels, The Terrorist Watch - tells the previously unreported story of how the United States helped thwart the 2006 London terrorist plot, broke up terrorist cells in Canada, and prevented numerous other attacks - reveals how the CIA and FBI have rolled up more than 5,000 terrorists worldwide since 9/11 - provides a stunning insider's account from the FBI agent who spent eight months debriefing Saddam Hussein after his capture- pinpoints press leaks that have resulted in CIA agents' deaths, caused foreign countries to stop cooperating on key investigations, and even tipped off Osama bin Laden to U.S. surveillance- destroys numerous media myths, such as the canard that the FBI and CIA still don't cooperate on investigations - discloses the truth about the number of U.S. mosques where imans preach jihad- shows how the intelligence community has radically changed its mission--and how the media have misled the public about those changes Never before has a journalist gained such access to the FBI, the CIA, the National Counterterrorism Center, and the other agencies that are doing the unheralded work of ﬁnding and capturing terrorists. Ronald Kessler's you-are-there narrative tells the real story of the war on terror and will transform the way you view the greatest problem of our age.

Описание: Never before has a journalist penetrated the wall of secrecy that surrounds the U.S. Secret Service. After conducting exclusive interviews with more than one hundred current and former Secret Service agents, bestselling author and award-winning reporter Ronald Kessler reveals their secrets for the first time. George W. Bush s daughters would try to lose their agents. Based on a psychic s vision that a sniper would assassinate President George H. W. Bush, the Secret Service changed his motorcade route. To make the press think he came to work early, Jimmy Carter would walk into the Oval Office at 5 a.m., then nod off to sleep. Lyndon Johnson gave dangerous instructions to his Secret Service agents and engaged in extensive philandering at the White House."
