From the Publisher“For both readers familiar with intelligence work and to those to whom it is an intriguing mystery, Gary Berntsen’s latest work has much to offer. The brief book is a good introduction to a wide range of problems likely to remain critical for years to come. Even when one disagrees with the author’s arguments, their clarity and balance deserve careful consideration.”
"Educated and scholarly reading on America’s problems when it comes to dealing with terror, [this book] is very much recommended reading"
"A wise tutorial for anyone seriously interested in how [human intelligence] actually works — or doesn’t. . . . Far from a rehash of the woes that are continuing to chase experienced and talented CIA counterterrorism officers out of the building as soon as they’re eligible for retirement, Berntsen offers a wide array of thoughtful Rx’s for sharpening the point of the spear."
“This thought-provoking book not only highlights the problems in the counterterrorism world but also offers workable solutions. Berntsen distills his experience into a systematic, well-written blueprint for the next administration. This book should be read by anyoneworking in this field, political scientists, and citizens wanting to understand what changes need to take place to empower America to defeat terrorists.”
"Gary is in many ways a modern day Paul Revere, whose warnings shine a light on a new and determined enemy. This book is a call to action for decision makers and members of the intelligence community who have grown frustrated with business as usual."
“Gary Berntsen knows firsthand the evil threat of Islamic terrorism. In this highly informative but immensely readable book, he is not afraid to speak unpleasant truths. Even more important, Berntsen provides a roadmap that could lead us to victory, if we have the will.”
