Because of the intriguing subject matter, I decided to hold my nose and jump in. As with so many first impressions I could not have been further from the facts. This is an interesting read from a 'say it like it is' author.

Read books like 49 Towers to find out more about middle eastern conflict and the possible roles of 'First World' nations.

Robert Baer, a former CIA employee, often explains terrorist activities on CNN. Reading “See No Evil,” is an autobiographical account of his two decades in the CIA. The book exposes the reader to the long training program that operatives have to go through to prepare them for the arduous life they are about to enter. Then there are countless tales of his experiences in places like India, Lebanon, Tajikistan, and Iraq. There are so many foreign names and strange incidents and conflicting relationships that at times the inexperienced reader just has to soak in the atmosphere and not to worry too much about exactly what is going on.
