Operation Hotel California is the definitive inside account of the secret CIA mission that paved the way for the Iraq War. Based on exclusive interviews with the team leader, Charles S. Faddis-who retired in 2008 and whose name was publicly revealed in this book for the first time-it is also the most blistering indictment by any U.S. counterterrorism officer of America's blunders vis-a-vis Al-Qaeda and Iraq. Its lessons are vital as a new administration seeks to withdraw securely from Iraq and fight extremists in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
