Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror by Richard A. Clarke
Against All Enemies is Richard Clarke's account of the U.S, war on terrorism that has launched a firestorm of controversy, especially his claims that the Bush administration wasn't paying proper heed to the threat from Al Qaeda before Sept. 11, 2001. Clarke has served under four presidential administrations and Against All Enemiesoffers a rarely seen insight into the inner workings of government and national security. Whether you think Clarke is using misinformed opinions or lies in an attempt to sell books or is on the mark with his criticisms, perhaps the New Orleans Times-Picayune has the best perspective when it says, "Nobody, not Richard Clarke, not Condoleezza Rice, and certainly not the average reader of this book wants President Bush -- or any president -- to fail in the war on terrorism. If this disturbing catalog of charges of miscues, missed communications and misplaced priorities can lead government to a better conduct of that war, it should be required reading -- for all of us."
