But Clarke goes beyond terrorism to examine the recurring U.S. government disasters. Despite the lessons of Vietnam, we've gotten involved in Iraq. A trail of intelligence failures litter the Washington landscape. From Katrina to color codes and duct tape, homeland security has been an oxymoron. Why does the Superpower continue to hobble national security?
Drawing on his 30 years in the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and Intelligence Community, Clarke discovers patterns in the failure and suggests ways to stop the cycle.

Authoritative and well written assessment of our governmental process, especially as it relates to security, and the former Bush Administration. Superb ideas for change. I wish that Richard Clarke were still at the helm. His perspective and insight are much needed—always needed! Well done.
