Abstract:

In "See No Evil", one of the CIA's top field officers of the past quarter century recounts his career running agents in the back alleys of the Middle East. In the process, Robert Baer paints a chilling picture of how terrorism works on the inside and provides compelling evidence about how Washington politics sabotaged the CIA's efforts to root out the world's deadliest terrorists. Not only is this an unprecedented examination of the roots of modern terrorism and the CIA's failure to acknowledge and neutralise the growing fundamentalist threat, it is an engrossing memoir of Baer's education and disillusionment as an intelligence operative. When Baer left the agency in 1997, he received the Career Intelligence Medal with a citation that says: "He repeatedly put himself in personal danger, working the hardest targets, in service to his country." "See No Evil" is Baer's frank assessment of an agency that forgot that "service to country" must transcend politics and is a forceful plea for the CIA to return to its original mission - the preservation of American national sovereignty and the American way of life. -- Description from http://www.amazon.com (June 18, 2012.).
