Spies, Lies and the War on Terror traces the transformation of intelligence from a tool of law enforcement to a means of avoiding the law both national and international." "The new culture of victimhood in the US and among partners in the 'coalition of the willing' has crushed domestic liberties and formed a global network of extra-legal licence. State and corporate interests are increasingly fused in the new business of privatising fear. The authors argue that the bureaucracy and narrow political goals surrounding intelligence potentially increase the terrorist threat."--Jacket." ;
