Publisher's Summary

The Great War of Our Time offers an unprecedented assessment of the CIA while at the forefront of our nation's war against al-Qa'ida and during the most remarkable period in the history of the agency. Called the "Bob Gates of his generation", Michael Morell is a top CIA officer who saw it all - the only person with President Bush on 9/11/01 and with President Obama on 5/1/11, when Usama Bin Laden was brought to justice. Like Ghost Wars, See No Evil, and At the Center of the Storm, The Great War of Our Time is a vivid, newsmaking account of the CIA, a life of secrets, and a war in the shadows.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

You gotta listen to this

I am not a politically savvy person. My opinion of contemporary news and politics is usually shaped by programs like the Colbert report and the Daily show. Prior to listening to this book, I felt confused about many issues such as how much should we be afraid of an attack on US by al-Qaeda, how political/corrupted were the leaders of intelligence community and how can we trust them and their motives after what happened in Iraq. This book answered those questions and many others. I elect to believe the author's statements (as of now, I have no reason not to) and as a result I have become significantly more confident in US government and CIA's mission to protect our citizens. This was a great read that provided both a history of war against terrorism and a knowledge of working of the CIA and its relationship to congress and the president.

You could read this just for a blow by blow of how those controversial Benghazi talking points came about. But you'll also learn the inside scoop on 9-11, the intelligence lead up to the Iraq war, the Bin Laden mission and every other story that has dominated the news for the last 30 years. Was Snowden a hero or a traitor? The facts speak for themselves.
