Overview


How Bush-hating CIA Bureaucrats Are Sabotaging the War on Terror
Since the attacks on September 11, 2001, intelligence collection has become the number-one weapon in the effort to defeat al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden. A plot penetrated is an attack stopped. And to the outside observer, the CIA has performed well as a key partner in the Bush administration's War on Terror. But as Rowan Scarborough reveals in this groundbreaking new book, significant elements within the CIA are undermining both the president and national security through leaks, false allegations, and outright sabotage.

Using his first-rate sources in all levels of national security--from field officers to high-ranking analysts to former intelligence heads--Scarborough paints a disturbing picture of partisan politics endangering the success of our campaigns abroad and the very lives of our soldiers and agents.

In Sabotage, you'll learn:

* How CIA analysts repeatedly leak details about classified intelligence programs with the dual intent of ending them and damaging the president
* How, on at least eight occasions, intelligence officials have made serious allegations of wrongdoing against the president's men--which turned out to be false
* Why, contrary to popular belief, the CIA has become predominantly liberal
* How a CIA turf battle prevented special operators from pursuing and capturing a notorious Taliban leader
* How current and former CIA officers fueled conspiracy theories that President Bush orchestrated the 9/11 attacks on America
* How a CIA leak to the New York Times deprived the U.S. of critical information in the War on Terror
* How press leaks by the CIA have damaged relations with our foreign allies in the War on Terror
* How a CIA analyst worked with Democrats to sabotage the nomination of John Bolton to the UN
* How Clinton's downsizing of the CIA led to the closing of stations in scores of jihadist breeding grounds--including Hamburg, Germany, where the 9/11 plot was hatched

The CIA's job is to collect facts and let the White House, the Pentagon, and the State Department make national security policy. But, as Scarborough conclusively demonstrates, an agency that is supposed to be scrupulously nonpartisan has become increasingly political--during a time of war--against America's elected commander in chief.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Veteran Washington Times reporter Rowan Scarborough is convinced that Central Intelligence Agency bureaucrats are intentionally undermining the Bush administration's efforts in Iraq and elsewhere. In Sabotage, he asserts that CIA analysts have repeatedly leaked details of unfolding initiatives, thereby nullifying their effectiveness, in order to embarrass the White House. He accuses intelligence officials of delivering scoops to the liberal media even as they stonewall the Pentagon and the president. A controversial read for fans of Bill Gertz and Bill Sammon.

    good argument....

    Overall this was an interesting read despite the fact that it was rather boring throughout. The author ephasizes how elements within the CIA activley work against the Bush administration for various reasons. He discusses how partisan politics, washington power strugles, personal agendas and territorial/ agency infighting is endangering our security. He discusses how the Clinton cutbacks has left the CIA with a staff of undertrained and inexperienced analystists and officers to be part of the security aparatus that supposedly protects us. So in a nutshell.......okay book, kind of boring, but interesting. He doesn't state that the CIA in whole is working against the President, rather it is staffed by longtime liberals with an axe to grind who ignore their responsibity of being bipartisan and are responsible for the collection and analysis of the majority of foreign intel and are obligated to report to policy makers the facts.
