Title: “Courting Disaster: How the CIA Kept America Safe and How Barack Obama Is Inviting the Next Attack”
Author: Marc Thiessen
Blurb: “As chief speechwriter for President Bush, he was given unprecedented access to some of the most sensitive intelligence our government possessed on al Qaeda terrorists… What he reveals is a shocking, thoroughly documented account of just how close we came to suffering follow-on 9/11 attacks, how so-called ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ (including waterboarding) were directly responsible for unearthing the actionable intelligence that foiled them, and the extraordinary measures the Bush administration took to stay well within the bounds of what was not only legally but morally right.”
Review: “It is no accident that we haven’t been attacked since 9/11.”
