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.

Fascinating Insider Insights Into The Biggest National Security Stories Of Our Time
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.
