Richard Clarke | Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror
Richard Clarke's recent public testimony before the 9/11 Commission prompted an unprecedented furor in the media. Clarke's allegations are further detailed in his new book, Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror.
Known as a hard-liner against terrorists, Richard Clarke was appointed by President Clinton as the first National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counterterrorism in May 1998 and continued in that position under President George W. Bush. Clarke has worked for seven administrations and devoted three decades of his life to combating the terrorist threat to America. In Against All Enemies, Clarke tells of his experience as the nation's crisis manager during the September 11th attacks, describing - for the first time - the scene in the nation's Situation Room and his dismay at what followed. The ultimate insider, Clarke provides a fascinating history of America's confrontation with terrorism and a frank perspective on the inner workings of the Bush White House.
