Editorial Reviews


If you want to know the details of what happened and make your own decision pick up Enhanced Interrogation. You cannot make a decision on enhanced interrogation until you read this book. 
– Brian Kilmeade

  “No one has heard from Khalid Sheikh Mohammed since the 9/11 attacks, but James Mitchell has spent countless hours with the terror mastermind at the CIA’s black sites. In this gripping book, Mitchell reveals for the first time, in chilling detail, what KSM and other senior terrorist commanders told him. If you want to understand what drives the Islamic radicals seeking to destroy America—and what they say we must do if we want to stop them—you simply must read this book.”
Marc Thiessen, Washington Post Columnist and Bestselling Author of Courting Disaster
“Finally, we learn the true story about what ‘enhanced interrogation’ is, how it works, and how it protected America after the devastating attack of 9/11. The country owes a profound debt of gratitude to James Mitchell, who spent thousands of hours at CIA ‘black sites’ learning the secrets of men like Abu Zubaydah, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, as he and his dedicated colleagues scrambled to stop more deadly attacks on our nation.”
Debra Burlingame, Cofounder of 9/11 Families for a Safe & Strong America and Keep America Safe
“Emotions are high and accusations are being thrown about, but facts matter. Before anyone rushes to judgment, they should read this book and take in what happened through the eyes of a key player in the CIA’s interrogation program.”
General Michael Hayden, Usaf, Ret., Former Cia Director
“The authentic account of head-to-head hardball with fanatical Islamic killers by a professional who not only won big for America, but did it while fending off powerful critics. The lessons learned needed to be told—and well-told they are. The war on us by radical Islamists is far from over—read and learn!”
Hon. Porter J. Goss, Former Chairman of House Intelligence Committee and Cia Director
