Book description

See No Evil is the astonishing and controversial memoir from one of the CIA's top field officers of the past quarter century. Robert Baer recounts his career as a ground soldier in the CIA's war on terrorism, running agents in the back alleys of the Middle East, with blistering honesty. He paints a chilling picture of how terrorism works on the inside and provides compelling evidence about how Washington sabotaged the CIA's efforts to root out the world's deadliest terrorists. See No Evil is an unprecedented examination of the roots of modern terrorism and the CIA's failure to acknowledge and neutralise the growing fundamentalist threat, and an engrossing memoir of Baer's education as an intelligence operative.

See No Evil includes revelations about the strategic alliance Osama bin Laden forged with Iran in 1996 to mastermind terrorist attacks on the United States and elsewhere, about the planned coup d'etat against Saddam Hussein and how it was aborted by the National Security Council, and about the CIA's disastrous decision in 1991 to shut down its operations in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, ignoring the fundamentalists working in those countries.

An extraordinary testimony that has become even more vital and damning since the events of 9/11 and the subsequent War on Iraq. Revealing ... offers much eye-opening information. Baer has written a valuable, illuminating book * Houston Chronicle * See No Evil is a real blockbuster, a revelation ... convincing and wonderfully presented ... [Baer] ties it all together like a suspense novel * National Review * A particularly disturbing account...compelling * Washington Times *
