Description: TheNew York Timesbestselling memoir about the creation and implementation of the controversial Enhanced Interrogation Techniques by the former Chief Operations Officer for the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center.Puerto Rican-born Jose A. Rodriguez, Jr., served the United States for twenty-five years as an undercover officer before bringing his wealth of field knowledge to the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center. In his riveting and fascinating life story, Rodriguez discloses the undercover operations and tactics implemented during the George W. Bush presidency—approved by the highest levels of the U.S. government, certified as legal by the Department of Justice, and supported by bipartisan leadership of congressional intelligence oversight committees.But as the shock of 9/11 faded, the tools needed to successfully fight terrorism were banished, and the men and women who volunteered to battle al-Qaeda found themselves second-guessed, hamstrung, and investigated—including Rodriguez himself. InHard Measures, Rodriguez convincingly argues for the techniques used, explaining when these techniques were necessary, why they worked, and how, ultimately, they contributed to the capture of the world’s most-wanted terror operatives, including Osama bin Ladin. From law school student to CIA recruit to his role as America’s top spy, Rodriguez’s full story is a rare, insider’s look at an issue that demands attention. Above all, it’s a reasoned, imperative, and fully informed case for hard measures, and a gripping account of the real war on terror—where it’s been and where it’s headed.
