From the Publisher
Annotation Foreign policy expert Marc Thiessen, a former member of President George W. Bush's senior staff, argues that Barack Obama has significantly undermined America's national security and put the country at risk of another terrorist attack similar to 9-11. As chief speech writer for President Bush, Thiessen had insider knowledge of the C.I.A.'s interrogation program, which was eliminated by Obama when he entered office. Thiessen demonstrates that this program prevented several known terrorist plots by employing unique interrogation methods that have been falsely condemned as torture. Thiessen proclaims that Obama's abandonment and critique of this program has not only left America exposed to future attacks, but has led to criminal backlash against C.I.A. officers who should be lauded as national heroes for having thwarted numerous threats against the United States.
Editors Note The speechwriter for George W. Bush presents interviews and sensitive details about the terrorist acts prevented due to enhanced interrogation methods, and describes how those efforts are hampered by Barack Obama's administration.
