This book offers an inside view from such a privilaged vantage point seldom experienced by the public. It is a story that serves as a vivid reminder of the sharp, brave and selfless operations officers that put it all on line everyday for this great nation. Thank you and be safe...who ever you are.

I loved reading this, it is a non-bias, insider's view of Afghanistan just days after 9/11. To read the intelligence that was retrieved, it is amazing. A true tribute to the intelligence community.
