    Perseus Academic: The Interrogator by Glenn L. Carle

    The Interrogator is the story of Carle’s most serious assignment, when he was “surged” to become an interrogator in the U.S. Global War on Terror to interrogate a top level detainee at one of the CIA’s notorious black sites overseas. It tells of his encounter with one of the most senior al-Qa’ida detainees the U.S. captured after 9/11, a “ghost detainee” who, the CIA believed, might hold the key to finding Osama bin Ladin.

    Glenn l. Carle was a member of the CIA’s Clandestine Service for twenty-three years and retired in March 2007 as deputy national intelligence officer for transnational threats. He lives in Washington, DC.

    ---------------------------------------------

    Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell
    "In The Interrogator, Glenn Carle has done more than simply lift a part of the curtain behind which are lurking despicable men such as John Yoo and Douglas Feith, he has turned the stage lights on those who stand out front and continue to receive rave reviews from the rabid right wing, men such as Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld. But most of all, Carle's moving and emotional story-in spite of CIA redactions to the text-has exposed us all, from the CIA officers who turned a blind eye, to the cabinet members who should have known better, to the American people themselves because they allowed such people to corrupt our nation. I know; I was one of them."

    Sounds like a bunch of bullshit. No wonder you fell for it.

    I don't believe rdean has actually read the book. Reading seems beneath someone of his stature.

    The book has not been released yet. Carle is a retired CIA officer. It should be an interesting read.

    You wanna see a book bring down one parties policies? Check out Henry Haslets "economics in one lesson", it shows you how an economy can flourish and is pretty much the exact opposite of what Khalid Sheik Obama is doing right now.

    If everyone in Congress read and understood that book the stimulus and a bunch of other crap would never have been passed.

    I hate to break it to you but what we have to do to kill or capture some very bad people is not suitable for public consumption. Btw, what the enemy does to us is much, much worse. Why don't you give the enemy some more of your special brand of "Aid and Comfort".

    It's funny that you would bring this up. The information they got eventually led to what happened this weekend.

    You can't argue against that. But attempt if you must.

    Yes, the children are enjoying themselves.

    The adults made it happen.
