Book #24: The Great War of our Times, Michael Morrell
In the past decade, one of the biggest threats that we have faced as a nation is terrorism as perpetrated by Al Qa’ida and now ISIS. During this fight, the CIA has played an important part both in gathering of intelligence but also in commitment of human resources to the fight. In this book, Michael Morrell describes his career at CIA from his time as daily briefer of President George W. Bush to his retirement as deputy director of CIA. He discusses the CIA perspective of events such as 9/11, Bengazhi, Snowden and other world events. He provides an interesting history of Al Qa’ida and issues a warning about threat posed by ISIS. This is an interesting book for anyone interested in current events and foreign policy as it pertains to the United State’s interests in the middle east.
