In the days after 9/11, the CIA directed Henry Crumpton to organize and lead its covert action campaign in Afghanistan. Even at the height of combat against the Taliban in late 2001, there were fewer than five hundred Americans on the ground in Afghanistan. This group, a dynamic blend of CIA and Special Forces operators, assisted by only a few allied troops, managed to rout al Qaeda and the Taliban in less than 90 days after the Twin Towers fell. The Art of Intelligence draws from the full arc of Crumpton's espionage and covert action exploits to explain what America's spies do and why their service is more valuable than ever. Crumpton's enthralling story, covering his early years in Africa, to his liaison assignment at the FBI, his work at the CIA's Counterterrorism Center where he was involved in the development of the Predator UAV program, and his later work running all CIA clandestine operations inside the United States, has much to teach us about national security and love of country.
