Against the backdrop of post-9/11 uncertainty, ever-deepening pools of fuzzy data, and the most substantial changes in U.S. intelligence since 1947, intelligence analyst Philip Mudd crafts a clear yet nuanced narrative that traces the complex work of addressing the multilayered, ever-mutating problem of terrorism in an open society. Takedown takes readers from the 2001 Bonn Conference that installed the interim Karzai government in Afghanistan to daily threat triage sessions at CIA and FBI and inside the rooms where theory met practice, intelligence shaped policy, and the capabilities of would-be terrorists were probed apart from their intentions in an attempt to map blurry-edged conspiracies. Read this book to better understand not only the war on terrorism and the hunt for Al Qaeda but also the world’s most multifaceted intelligence enterprise and the relationship of intelligence to policy.
