15 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 1,711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
By mixing anecdotes with information gleaned from clandestine sources, ex-CIA operative Robert Baer superbly demonstrates that Iran, far from being a wild-eyed rogue state, is a rational actor--one skilled in the game of nations and so effective at thwarting perceived Western colonialism that even rival Sunnis relish fighting under its banner. For U.S. policy makers, the choices have narrowed: either cede the world's most important energy corridors to a nation that can match us militarily with its asymmetric capabilities (which include the use of suicide bombers)--or deal with the devil we know.--From publisher description

See no evil : the true story of a ground soldier in the CIA's war on terrorism by Robert Baer ( Book )
15 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Presents an examination of the roots of modern terrorism and the CIA's failure to acknowledge and neutralise the fundamentalist threat. From Baer, one of the CIA's top field officers, this is also an interesting memoir of his education and disillusionment as an intelligence operative. "See No Evil", renamed "Syriana" for it's big-screen release, is an astonishing and controversial memoir from one of the CIA's top field officers of the past quarter century. He 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. Baer paints a chilling picture of how terrorism works on the inside, and provides compelling evidence about how Washington politics sabotaged the CIA's efforts to root out the world's deadliest terrorists. Not only is this an unprecedented examination of the roots of modern terrorism and the CIA's failure to acknowledge and neutralise the growing fundamentalist threat, it is an engrossing memoir of Baer's education and disillusionment as an intelligence operative
