Courting disaster : how the CIA kept America safe and how Barack Obama is inviting the next attack by Marc A Thiessen( Book )

5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Courting Disaster shows how America's dedicated intelligence professionals went head-to-head with the world's most dangerous terrorists, and won--only to have Barack Obama expose America's secrets to the enemy, endorse smears against our intelligence officers, and put them at risk of prosecution for defending our country. As chief speechwriter for President Bush, Marc Thiessen had unprecedented access to some of the most sensitive intelligence our government possessed on al Qaeda. He has since spent countless hours interviewing the men and women involved in the interrogations at every level--from Vice President Dick Cheney to the interrogators themselves. What he reveals is a thoroughly documented account of just how close we came to suffering follow-on 9/11 attacks, how so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques" were directly responsible for unearthing the actionable intelligence that foiled them, and the extraordinary measures the Bush administration took to stay well within the bounds of what was not only legally but morally right.--From publisher description
Unintimidated : a governor's story and a nation's challenge by Scott Walker( Book )

"A controversial governor recounts his fight to reform his state and issues a call to action for the whole country In 2010, Scott Walker was elected governor of Wisconsin with a mandate to improve its economy and restore fiscal responsibility. With the state facing a $3.6 billion budget deficit, he proposed a series of reforms to limit the collective bargaining power of public employee unions, which was costing taxpayers billions in pension and health care costs. The reaction was swift and severe. Angry protesters gathered outside the capitol, teacher unions accused him of sabotaging education, and the media descended on Wisconsin to make it a national controversy. Soon, liberals nationwide were denouncing Governor Walker. He stood his ground despite relentless political and personal attacks with the help of supporters across the country who hailed him for having the courage to drive real change. In June 2012, he won a special recall election with a higher share of the vote than he had for his original election, becoming the first governor in the country to survive a recall election. In this book, Governor Walker shows how his commitment to limited but effective government paid off. During his tenure Wisconsin has saved more than $1 billion, property taxes have gone down for the first time in twelve years, and the deficit was turned into a surplus. He also shows what his experiences can teach defenders of liberty across the country about standing up to the special interests that favor the status quo"--
Courting disaster : how the CIA kept America safe and how Barack Obama is inviting the next attack by Marc A Thiessen( )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marc Thiessen knows more than almost anyone outside the CIA about what went on at CIA "black sites" and at the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. As chief speechwriter for President Bush, he was given unprecedented access to some of the most sensitive intelligence our government possessed on al Qaeda terrorists. He has since spent countless hours interviewing the men and women involved in the interrogations at every level--from Vice President Dick Cheney to the interrogators themselves. In chilling detail, Thiessen reveals how close the terrorists came to striking again, and how intelligence gained from "enhanced interrogation" repeatedly stymied their plots. He also shows how President Obama's dismantling of this CIA program, as well as his releasing of secret documents that have aided our enemies, is inviting disaster for America
