Publisher's Summary

For ten years, Senator Bob Graham served on the Senate Intelligence Committee, where he oversaw the conduct of the CIA and had access to some of the nation's most closely guarded secrets. In this explosive, controversial, and profoundly alarming insider's report, Senator Graham reveals faults in America's national security network severe enough to raise fundamental questions about the competence and honesty of public officials in the CIA, the FBI, and the White House.

    "Open your eyes"

    Republican, Democrat or Independent - this book will open your eyes. This book provides a detailed (almost too detailed) view into what happened in the 9/11 Commission Reports efforts to unravel what happened. It is startling information that shines light on the Saudi involvement in 9/11 and our administrations protection of this information. I am a registered Republican and did not see this in a defensive light. But it did shine the light on many unaddressed dangers that our Government has failed to address adequately. I appreciated the inside view to what has gone on behind the scenes. It opened my eyes. Citizens of this country owe it to themselves to go beyond sound bites and educate themselves on what really goes on. This book is a good start.

    "Utterly disturbing"

    Anyone who plans to vote this November should definitely read this book - or at least the 9/11 Commission Report. I cannot articulate how strongly this book has affected my political position. It completely changed my view on Iraq. A must-read for every American.

    "Good book, terrible reader"

    It is very interesting to get the insight of the chairman of the senate intellegence comittee on the current terrorist threat and organizations that comabat it. On the one hand, Grahm is a partisan senator who vigourously dissaproves of the acts of the Bush administration. On the other he is far more in the know than the endless line of pundits who have churned these issues over the last few years. Jonathan Marosz
    is the worst reader I have come across and I said I would never listen to him again, but this book was worth putting up with him.

    "A must listen!"

    Senator Bob Graham has done an outstanding job of meticulously detailing the intelligence failures related to the 9/11 terrorist attack. This is an eye-opening book and raises serious concerns about the health of democracy in America. Had Senator Graham not written this book we would be blissfully ignorant of the political distortions surrounding 9/11. This is a must read (listen) for those who care about the future and safety of America!

    Story
    "Highly informative even if it is written by a politician!"

    'Intelligence Matters' is highly informative and full of insight, even if the 'patriotism' of the author means that he can only ever see the world's problems from the perspective of how it affects Americans.

    "Authoritative and Organized, not Scintillating"

    Bob Graham like a lot of intelligence men is serious about being serious. This book amounts to a long position paper, but it is tastefully done and careful about the facts. His real point is, not about politics, but about his model for achieving integrity in intelligence.

    I found it thoroughly enjoyable. If you aren’t huge fan of Wolfowitz you probably won’t agree with Graham’s position, but you should still find the book tasteful and respectful.

    "Too much Politics"

    There was altogether too much Bush bashing, and not enough attention to the subject.

    "Very Interesting and Eye Opening"

    This is a very well-written, easily-understood book, and the narrator is excellent. I was surprised to discover that our government and its agencies had 12 occasions to probably stop the 9-11 terrorist attacks. This book is quite an eye-opener, written by Bob Graham who was/is in a position to know what went on.

    This is the kind of book I can listen to more than once.
