Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Louis Freeh led the Federal Bureau of Investigation from 1993 to 2001, through some of the most tumultuous times in its long history. This is the story of a life in law enforcement, and of one man's determined struggle to strengthen and reform the FBI while ensuring its freedom from political interference.

Bill Clinton called Freeh a "law enforcement legend" when he nominated him as FBI Director. The good feelings would not last. Going toe-to-toe with his boss during the scandal-plagued '90s, Freeh fought hard to defend his agency from political interference and to protect America from the growing threat of international terrorism. When Clinton later called that appointment the worst one he had made as president, Freeh considered it "a badge of honor."

This is Freeh's entire story, from his Catholic upbringing in New Jersey to law school, the FBI training academy, his career as a US District attorney and as a federal judge, and finally his eight years as the nation's top cop. This is the definitive account of American law enforcement in the run-up to September 11. Freeh is clear-eyed, frank, the ultimate realist, and he offers resolute vision for the struggles ahead.

Review:

"My FBI is ultimately a sad tale, and it's clear Freeh saw it this way, too. He had planned to resign before the end of Clinton's term but held off until the president left office because he worried that Clinton might replace him with someone who would damage the FBI." Washington Post

Review:

"A strangely shallow offering by a man who is anything but, Freeh's book is a letdown, a breezy, middlebrow memoir that appears aimed at 'Oprah' watchers rather than Foreign Affairs readers." New York times

Review:

"Just the latest in a long line of books that, to use our current president's vernacular, revel in the blame game. That doesn't mean it's a bad book. To the contrary, it's a breezy, provocative read, if a little too self-righteous for its own good." Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Synopsis:

A spectacular New York Times and Washington Post bestseller, My FBI is the definitive account of American law enforcement during the Clinton years and in the run-up to September 11.  Louis Freeh is clear eyed, frank, the ultimate realist, and he offers resolute vision for the struggles ahead.

 

“[Freeh] comes off as the real deal, an honorable, hard-working man, a devoted public servant and father, a gifted lawyer and onetime federal prosecutor.”---The New York Times

 

“Freeh did his country a great service by staying on as FBI director to be a witness---a truth teller, if you will---to all the nefarious goings-on at the Clinton White House. As with most debates surrounding the Clinton presidency, it comes down to this: Do you believe Louis Freeh, or do you believe Bill Clinton? If there remains any doubt, this book forever answers that question.”---The Philadelphia Inquirer

 

“In one of the years more explosive Washington memoirs, Freeh pulls no punches.”---The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

 

The FBI that Freeh took over in the summer of 1993 was still reeling from the bloody standoff at Ruby Ridge and the conflagration at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. Unpopular, underfunded, and understaffed, the Bureau was also creeping along in the technological Dark Ages. For eight years---the second longest tenure of any director since J. Edgar Hoover---Freeh would fight tooth and nail to turn the FBI around.

 

In My FBI, we follow Freeh through his five-year battle against Clinton, National Security Adviser Sandy Berger, and others to win indictments for the Khobar bombings in 2001, which stated that Iranian government officials played a role in the attack.

 

No wonder Bill Clinton called Freeh a “law enforcement legend” when he nominated him to be FBI Director. No wonder, either, that when Clinton subsequently called that appointment the worst one he made as president, Freeh considered it “a badge of honor.”
