    On September 12, 2001, FBI Special Agent Ali H. Soufan was handed a secret file. Had he received it months earlier—when it was requested—the attacks on New York and Washington could have been prevented. During his time on the front lines, Soufan helped thwart plots around the world and elicited some of the most important confessions from terrorists in the war against alQaeda—without laying so much as a hand on them.

    Story

    Do you have one of those people in your life who is rather arrogant and obnoxious, but who always has the best, most fascinating stories? You tolerate the annoying parts, to hear what will happen next.

    That is how I felt about this book. It is obvious that he has many issues with the CIA & EIT's, and I happen to agree with him on these subjects. I'm sure that he really is a very talented interrogator, and single handedly outwitted the most senior of Al-Qaeda operatives. I didn't need to hear about it over and over again however.

    It felt like often times these agendas got in the way of telling the story, and it is a very good story. I feel I know a bit more about the "War on Terror" that we are still fighting, and have gotten an glimpse at the on the ground obstacles our agents face.

    Worth hearing, but you may need to take a break now and then.
