Secrets and Lies in the Terror Wars

  • bestseller
KURT EICHENWALD—NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF CONSPIRACY OF FOOLS—RECOUNTS THE FIRST 500 DAYS AFTER 9/11 IN A COMPREHENSIVE, COMPELLING PAGE-TURNER..

In 500 Days, master chronicler Kurt Eichenwald lays bare the harrowing decisions, deceptions, and delusions of the eighteen months that changed the world forever, as leaders raced to protect their citizens in the wake of 9/11.

Eichenwald’s gripping, immediate style and true-to-life dialogue puts readers at the heart of these historic events, from the Oval Office to Number 10 Downing Street, from Guantanamo Bay to the depths of CIA headquarters, from the al-Qaeda training camps to the torture chambers of Egypt and Syria. He reveals previously undisclosed information from the terror wars, including never-before-reported details about warrantless wiretapping, the anthrax attacks and investigations, and conflicts between Washington and London.

With his signature fast-paced narrative style, Eichenwald exposes a world of secrets and lies that has remained hidden for far too long.
