I managed to read most of Richard Clarke’s book, Against All Enemies, on the train back from Dublin. I finished the last couple of chapters this evening. Regardless of his views, it is a great read – almost more like a Tom Clancy book than a look inside the counter-terrorism heads in Washington. There are some interesting passages towards the end of the book that I will quote in future posts, as much for my own records as for people reading this blog. Many of the arguments in the book have been gone over ad nauseum by dozens of blogs, so I will be brief in my thoughts.
