Very good FBI information

If FBI interests you in anyway this is a book you should pick up. I am from Lubbock, Tx and really like Kessler's take on the Terrorist Aldawasari. This was a very high profile case here and I liked to see the inside of the story and the FBI's involvement. Ronald Kessle...
If FBI interests you in anyway this is a book you should pick up. I am from Lubbock, Tx and really like Kessler's take on the Terrorist Aldawasari. This was a very high profile case here and I liked to see the inside of the story and the FBI's involvement. Ronald Kessler is a very good author and his stories are always a joy for me to read. They are made for anyone with any level of criminal knowledge to enjoy. I want to read his other novels now.

Interesting

I've never read Kesslers stuff before so I can't accuse him of being a cheerleader, but theres lots of rah rah for the FBI here. Most of this is just stories told by FBI guys with a slant towards blaming foul ups on previous directors. For example the FBI missed the 9/1...
I've never read Kesslers stuff before so I can't accuse him of being a cheerleader, but theres lots of rah rah for the FBI here. Most of this is just stories told by FBI guys with a slant towards blaming foul ups on previous directors. For example the FBI missed the 9/11 hijackers because Freeh didn't update the computers. It /is/ a fun read though, just take the idea that this is all true to life with a grain of salt.

    Mission Impossible's Role Model

    I really enjoyed Ronald Kessler's "In the President's Secret Service," so expected this one to be equally as interesting a read. It was, however, perhaps too informative. The details of how FBI covert ops are conducted was fascinating but a bit more information than I'd expect to be publicly released. Hope someone in the Bureau reviewed the manuscript and gave it the "A-OK." Very good profiles on FBI directors from J Edgar Hoover forward, as well as the politics that impacted Bureau operational policy.
