Summary
White House speechwriter Marc Thiessen was locked in a secure room and given access to the most sensitive intelligence when he was tasked to write President George W. Bush?s 2006 speech explaining the CIA?s interrogation program and why Congress should authorize it. Few know more about these CIA operations than Thiessen, and in his new book, Courting Disaster, he documents just how effective the CIA?s interrogations were in foiling attacks on America, penetrating al-Qaeda?s high command, and providing our military with actionable intelligence. Thiessen also shows how reckless President Obama has been in shutting down the CIA?s program and releasing secret documents that have aided our enemies. In chilling detail, Thiessen reveals how close the terrorists came to striking again, how intelligence gained from ?enhanced interrogation? repeatedly stymied their plots, and how President Obama?s dismantling of this CIA program is inviting disaster for America
