From a top level operative in the counterterrorism unit of the CIA comes an explosive memoir about the behind-the-scenes fight against Al Qa'ida after September 11.

Osama Bin Laden's death is the culmination of years of covert operations and tactics largely overseen by Jose Rodriguez from 2001 to late 2007. During Rodriguez's at times controversial tenure as Chief Operations Officer of the Counterterrorism Centre, CIA officers captured and detained senior Al Qa'ida operatives and implemented Enhanced Interrogation Techniques, which were an integral part of the War on Terror. HARD MEASURESwill examine how the current political climate and resultant policies have negatively impacted the CIA's efficiency and taken away the mechanisms that made feats like the successful Bin Laden operation possible.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jose Rodriguez guided some of the CIA's greatest counterterror victories, and his story is one of courage, commitment, and decisiveness. In this book, he provides concrete details about the value of the Agency's interrogation program of terrorists -- a program which thwarted terrorist attacks and has made America safer." -- General Michael V. Hayden, USAF (Ret.) Former Director of Central Intelligence
"Courageous CIA officers putting themselves in harm's way to protect the nation from ruthless terrorists - only to find they are undercut and second-guessed by posturing politicians. That's not the plot of some new novel-but the real-life story of Jose Rodriguez. In Hard Measures he offers a fascinating glimpse into the lives of the men and women who stopped al Qa'ida's second-wave of attacks and the price they paid for doing so." -- --Vince Flynn, New York Times bestselling author of Kill Shot
