With a preface and afterword read by the author, this abridgment of former CIA Director George Tenet's memoir offers his perspective on the events that led up to and followed 9/11. Tenet asserts that two months before the attack his office had information there would be a "spectacular" terrorist attack against the U.S. Why nothing significant was done to prevent it gets garbled in political doublespeak. Eric Conger gives an intelligent reading as Tenet spends an inordinate amount of time denying, then waffling over, his statement that the case against Iraq with respect to weapons of mass destruction was "a slam-dunk." Thanks to Conger's capable narration, the lack of communication between intelligence agencies is clear and deeply disturbing, and the questions left unanswered about current CIA policies speak volumes.
