Product description

Review

"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)

About the Author

Jose A. Rodriguez, Jr. joined the Central Intelligence Agency in 1976 and served with the Agency for thirty-one years. At the time of his retirement he was the Director of the National Clandestine Service for the CIA, responsible for the coordination of clandestine human operations for the intelligence community. As a former Director of the Counterterrorism Center, he led the worldwide intelligence collection programs and covert action operations against international terrorist organizations following the ouster of terrorists from Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks.
Bill Harlow is the former chief spokesman for the Central Intelligence Agency. He was the coauthor of former CIA director George Tenet’s #1 New York Times bestseller, At the Center of the Storm, published in 2007. He is a retired Naval Officer who served in top spokesman jobs at the White House, Pentagon, and CIA.
