The CIA at War

Inside the Secret Campaign Against Terror

Ronald Kessler

St. Martin's Griffin

In this urgent and most timely study, veteran investigative reporter and New York Times bestselling author Kessler discloses much highly sensitive information about the Central Intelligence Agency's unorthodox methods, its stunning successes, and its shocking failures.

The CIA at War explores, moreover, whether this agency can or should be trusted, whether its intelligence is politicized, and whether it is capable of winning the war on terror. In doing so, Kessler weaves into his multi-faceted inquiry—which draws on interviews with some fifty current CIA officers, and all of its top officials—a full history of the agency as well as an account how it really functions. From the CIA's 9/11-related intelligence failures to its critical role in preventing further attacks, The CIA at War offers a riveting and unique investigation into a secretive and powerful organization and its ongoing confrontation with global terrorism.

REVIEWS

Praise for The CIA at War
