The Black Banners : Inside the Hunt for Al Qaeda Paperback
The ultimate insider's account of the battle against terrorism, The Black Banners describes for the first time Ali Soufan's nerve-wracking, history-making decade as the FBI's lead investigator into al-Qaeda, thwarting plots around the world and winning vital confessions from terrorists - without laying so much as a hand on them.
From the interrogation rooms where Soufan would share food and films with the suspects so he could bond with them, to the hideouts of bin Laden - and why the CIA have insisted on redacting parts of this book - Ali Soufan's gripping book reveals with intimate, first-hand knowledge, the shocking truth about 9/11, America's security agencies, and the global 'War on Terror'.
