The Terrorist Watch: Inside the Desperate Race to Stop the Next Attack By Ronald Kessler This is a timely, well-written and easy-to-read book that should be read by every American. The title accurately indicates the subject matter, and you will have new respect for the important and tireless work done by the FBI and the CIA. After reading this book, you will understand why the FBI and CIA were in such pitiful shape at the time of 9/11 and how steps taken by the Bush Administration--and especially implementation of the Patriot Act--have made such a difference in protecting Americans and America from several more planned attacks, both at home and abroad. As the Director of the National Counterterrorism Center said, the public "only knows the tip of the iceberg." This would make a fine Christmas gift for you, your family members or friends who would like to hear “the other side of the story,” which you have not and will not hear from the MSM.
