At the Center of the Storm

Author(s): George Tenet

Biography & Memoir

For the first time, George Tenet speaks out on his tenure as one of the most influential and longest-sitting CIA directors in history. At the Center of the Storm is an unflinching chronicle of his life at the CIA, the war on terror, and the actions and motives of American leaders in times of crisis. In the whirlwind of accusations and recriminations that has attended the post-9/11 world, one man's vital testimony has been conspicuously absent. Candid and compelling, At the Center of the Storm is George Tenet's memoir of his life at the CIA , a revelatory look at the inner workings of America's top intelligence agency and its dealings with national leaders at home and abroad. With unparalleled knowledge and breadth, Tenet illuminates how the country was prepared, and not prepared, to deal with a world full of new and deadly threats, including CIA operations inside Afghanistan and efforts since 9/11 to hunt down the fugitive members of Al Qaeda's leadership. Finally, in addition to the backstage story of the headline events, Tenet will offer his thoughts on the future of U.S. intelligence and its role in foreign-policy decisions, setting forth an informed plan for how we can forge a more secure world.
