Black Site: The CIA in the Post-9/11 World Reviews

  • Carl Brookins
    Here is an eye-opening, compelling inside narrative of our premiere intelligence agency during one of the most upsetting periods in the life of our nation. Remember that the Central Intelligence Agency was not very old when Al-Qaeda flew planes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and litera...

    Phillip Mudd is an MSNBC and CNN contributor on all topics related to terrorism and security. He has the bona fides to speak knowledgeably on the subject as he was the deputy Director of the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center. Black Site addresses the events that lead to the creation of black site...

    I received this book through a Good Reads “First Reads” giveaway. Black Site, authored by the former Deputy Director of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center, Philip Mudd, is an examination of the development and implementation of “the Program,” the CIA’s system of secret d...

    I found the book to be thorough, but more biased in favor of the CIA that I had hoped. It did a good job of giving a complete summary of events, as well as insight into the chains of decisions and circumstances that lead to those decisions.

    By the looks of it, sounded like it would be a very sexy book about CIA ops after 9/11 and how 9/11 changed interrogation forever. It was more of a backwards looking justification (a very defensive one) of the CIA's actions during the period right after 9/11. It was almost whiny in the sense of blam...

    A short, disappointing read.I had hoped this book would be mea culpa of sorts, a reckoning of the deep crimes committed by the CIA over the last two decades amidst the gross human rights violation the U.S. calls the "War on Terror". Instead, what we get is a grand apologia, a relentless page-by-page...

    Still to this day, one of the most difficult moments in my working life came in April 2009. The Associated Press ran a story about a man named Gul Rahman who had been killed by the CIA at Bagram Airbase in Afghanistan in 2003. 3 months prior to this story, I had been in Peshawar investigating disapp...
