Risen's book is really about the secret of many things that have gone wrong in the administration of George W. The quantity, and apparent quality, of the secrets revealed in State of War distinguishes Risen's book from its competitors. Risen becomes the mouthpiece for a . intelligence community anxious to unburden itself of the mistakes and misdeeds of the recent past. He has not one, but many 'Deep Throats

Risen is the author of the book State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration .

Risen is the author of the book State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration (January 2006). The book conducted important investigations into Central Intelligence Agency activities. The timing of The New York Times story after the Iraq election in mid December 2005 is a source of controversy since the story was delayed for over a year. The New York Times story appeared two days before a former NSA employee, dismissed in May 2005, requested permission to testify to two Congressional intelligence oversight committees.

With relentless media coverage, breathtaking events, and extraordinary congressional and independent investigations, it is hard to believe that we still might not know some of the most significant facts about the presidency of George W. Yet beneath the surface events of the Bush presidency lies a secret history - a series of hidden events that makes a mockery of current debate. This hidden history involves domestic spying, abuses of power, and outrageous operations

James Risen has covered national security for The New York Times for years. These are just a few of the stories told in State of War. Beyond these shocking specifics, Risen describes troubling patterns: Truth-seekers within the CIA were fired or ignored. Based on extraordinary sources from top to bottom in Washington and around the world, drawn from dozens of interviews with key figures in the national security community, this book exposes an explosive chain of events: Contrary to law, and with little oversight, the National Security Administration has been engaged in a massive domestic spying program. Long-standing rules were trampled.

James Risen’s ‘Pay Any Price’. John Mueller of Ohio State University has repeatedly written about the extraordinary sums expended in America’s overreaction to the threat posed by Al Qaeda. His focus is not on the ravages of war wrought in the countries invaded by the United States and its allies, but on the United States itself.

State of War

James Risen covers national security for the ‘New York Times’. He was a member of the team that won the Pulitzer Prize for coverage of September 11 and terrorism. He lives outside Washington DC with his wife and three sons. This 2006 book has 240 pages for its ‘Prologue’, nine chapters, ‘Afterword’, and ‘Index’. This book uses anonymous sources because of necessity. The ‘Prologue’ tells how George W. Bush’s actions led to a new domestic spying program, chaos in Iraq, and a narco-state in Afghanistan. Management problems in Clinton’s administration created problems in the CIA. The CIA was created in 1947, when the Defense Department ended the Secretaries of War and Navy, to prevent any loss of data from separate Army and Navy Intelligence departments (p.5).

George W. Bush, on the advice of his father, kept George Tenet on as head of the CIA (Chapter 1). The CIA warned about an al Qaeda attack but the FBI was responsible for terrorists inside the USA. Iraqi prisoner abuse could not be linked to George W. Bush (p.23). There was a secret agreement for this (p.25). Were harsh tactics justified by self-defense or “intelligence collection” (p.26)? Harsh methods violated the Geneva Conventions (p.27). Page 32 describes the techniques of torture. But this generates bad information (p.33). Rendition cases have involved innocent people or gone badly (p.34). Taking prisoners to another country violates the Geneva Convention and is a war crime under federal law (p.36). Secret intelligence activities in the US may violate American civil liberties (p.37). The movie “Enemy of the State” showed the NSA as an evil rogue organization to spy on and persecute unwitting Americans (Chapter 2). After 9/11 the NSA is spying on a large scale on Americans (p.43). This violated the Fourth Amendment. White House lawyers say the war resolution allowed this (p.45). This assumed a terrorist would use electronic communication. The “Patriot Act” gave new powers to the NSA (p.47).

Chapter 3 discusses the power relationships in the Bush Administration. They complained because the CIA did not consider Iraq to be a major threat (p.72). [This assessment turned out to be true.] Bush planned an invasion of Iraq since he was elected (p.77). Did Iraq have Weapons of Mass Destruction (Chapter 4)? No, else they would not have been defeated so quickly (p.86). The CIA ignored the evidence that Iraq abandoned its efforts to develop a nuclear bomb (p.106). Bush would send troops to Iraq needlessly. CIA officials who were skeptical about claims of WMD were shunted to the side (Chapter 5). Iraqi exiles told the US what they wanted to hear (p.115). The post-invasion period became difficult (Chapter 6). The CIA station chief in Baghdad wrote an honest account and got in trouble (p.127). There were no plans for postwar Iraq (p.132). The result was a growing insurgency (p.146). [Divide et impera?]

There were problems in Afghanistan, the growth of opium production (Chapter 7). This was the effect of a policy decision (p.153). America’s allies in Kabul allowed opium production to skyrocket (p.155). Saudi Arabia’s influence in American politics is pervasive and seldom discussed in Washington (Chapter 8). The CIA had an operation to help Iran build a nuclear bomb in order to learn about their progress (Chapter 9). One trick was to give them blueprints that had hidden flaws (p.210). Iran hated the ruling Taliban in Afghanistan (p.214). Bush’s war on Iraq turned it into a new haven for terrorists (‘Afterword’). The CIA was weakened by the actions of Cheney and Rumfield. By 2005 most Americans turned against the war in Iraq (p.222).

The importance of this book is to gather reports that were omitted in many newspapers, or forgotten when new sensations were reported in the newspapers. The decline in newspapers makes books like this valuable.
