Morell offers new details about the CIA’s race to gather intelligence on secondary al Qaeda plots targeting the U.S. – including the agency’s behind-the-scenes engagements with leaders in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia – and explains why he believes thousands of lives were saved in the immediate post-9/11 period. He also shares his perspective on the agency’s Detention and Interrogation program and how it affected CIA’s public standing.
