See No Evil: The True Story of a Ground Soldier in the CIA's War on Terrorism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"See No Evil is a compelling account of America's failed efforts to 'listen in' on the rest of the world, especially the parts of it that intend to do us harm." Wall Street Journal

Review:

"Robert Baer was considered perhaps the best on-the-ground field officer in the Middle East." Seymour M. Hersh, The New Yorker

Synopsis:

The explosive New York Times bestseller See No Evil is Baer's gripping memoir of his 20-year career in the Middle East working in the CIA's Directorate of Operations. Filled with shocking and troubling revelations, and including a new Afterword by the author, he makes clear how U.S. intelligence could have failed to expose the world's deadliest terrorists. Photo insert.
