A stunning narrative account of the mysterious Jordanian who penetrated both the inner circle of al-Qaeda and the highest reaches of the CIA, with a devastating impact on the war on terror. In December 2009, a group of the CIA’s top terrorist hunters gathered at a secret base in Khost, Afghanistan, to greet a rising superspy: Humam Khalil al-Balawi, a Jordanian double-agent who infiltrated the upper ranks of al-Qaeda. For months, he had sent shocking revelations from inside the terrorist network and now promised to help the CIA assassinate Osama bin Laden’s top deputy. Instead, as he stepped from his car, he detonated a thirty-pound bomb strapped to his chest, instantly killing seven CIA operatives, the agency’s worst loss of life in decades. In The Triple Agent, Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter Joby Warrick takes us deep inside the CIA’s secret war against al-Qaeda, a war that pits robotic planes and laser-guided missiles against a cunning enemy intent on unleashing carnage in American cities. Flitting precariously between the two sides was Balawi, a young man with extraordinary gifts who managed to win the confidence of hardened terrorists as well as veteran spymasters. With his breathtaking accounts from inside al-Qaeda’s lair, Balawi appeared poised to become America’s greatest double-agent in half a century—but he was not at all what he seemed. Combining the powerful momentum of Black Hawk Down with the institutional insight of Jane Mayer’s The Dark Side, Warrick takes the readers on a harrowing journey from the slums of Amman to the inner chambers of the White House in an untold true story of miscalculation, deception, and revenge. From the Hardcover edition.

ABOUT THE BOOK “You’ll treat me like a friend, right?”—Humam al-Balawi on the phone to his handler Ali bin Zeid before arriving at Camp Chapman December 30, 2009 was one of the deadliest days in the history of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Seven CIA agents and a Jordanian Intelligence Officer were killed at Camp Chapman, the CIA’s forward operating base in Khost, Afghanistan, which bordered Pakistan’s tribal region. The individual responsible for the suicide bombing, Humam Khalil al-Balawi, was a trusted intelligence source that promised Washington access to the inner circle of al-Qaeda. Instead, al-Balawi delivered a devastating blow to the Global War on Terror and the intelligence-sharing network that drove it. The Triple Agent is one of the first publications to provide a detailed account of the events that resulted in the Camp Chapman bombing. In a gripping narrative constructed through interviews with U.S. and Jordanian intelligence officials, the families of the victims, and the family of Humam al-Balawi, Joby Warrick recounts the combination of human and institutional factors that enabled a man loyal to Jihad to gain the trust of intelligence agencies and carry out a martyrdom operation at a secure CIA installation. MEET THE AUTHOR Abigail Adams is a freelance researcher and writer that has covered national security, middle eastern affairs and the financial industry. Her work has appeared in The Jerusalem Report, The American Chronicle and eHow. She holds a B.A. from UMASS Amherst and a Certificate in Counter-Terrorism from Henley-Putnam University. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Three months later, al-Balawi was sent on an all-expenses paid trip to Pakistan. His job was to provide bin Zeid with information that would enable the Mukhabarat and the CIA to track wanted terrorists in Pakistan’s tribal region. The information al-Balawi provided captured the attention of the highest echelons of Washington; President Barack Obama requested updates on the work of the informant. Within months of arriving in Pakistan, al-Balawi had managed to gain the trust of the leading commanders of the Tehrik-i-Taliban, the alliance of Islamic militants in Pakistan’s tribal region, who introduced him to al-Qaeda’s inner circle. When al-Balawi sent bin Zeid a video of himself in the presence of al-Qaeda’s operational mastermind Ayman al-Zawahiri, Washington demanded a meeting with the Mukhabarat informant. Camp Chapman in Khost Afghanistan, within miles of the only open border crossing to Pakistan, was identified as the fateful location... Buy a copy to keep reading!

“Paul the Apostle,” whose name before Christian conversion was Saul of Tarsus, has been considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age. He was a high council Pharisee Jew who fatally persecuted Christians before a day that he himself had a vision of Jesus that made him blind for days and led him to preach Christianity after being commanded by a man in Damascus. That man may well have been a triple agent for the Pharisees and the already-standing apostles, and, ultimately, for the conquering Roman empire. There is some evidence to this in the Bible itself.

“A cracking good read” and a chilling true story of Russia’s assassination program begun more than a century ago and which continues today (Tennent H. Bagley, former CIA chief of Soviet Bloc counterintelligence). In late November 2006, Alexander Litvinenko—a former lieutenant colonel of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation—was ruthlessly assassinated in London by radiation poisoning. The shocking murder was the most notorious crime committed by the Russian intelligence on foreign soil in more than three decades. Here, former Russian military intelligence officer and an international expert in special operations Boris Volodarsky—who was consulted by the Metropolitan Police during the Litvinenko investigation—offers readers a startling narrative of the Russian security services’ history of covert assassination by poisoning. Beginning in 1917 with Lenin and his dreaded Cheka secret police, Russian security services have committed killing after killing both in Russia and across the globe. In The KGB’s Poison Factory, Volodarsky proves that the Litvinenko’s poisoning—supposedly ordered by Russian strongman Vladimir Putin—is just one episode in a chain of murders going back decades. Some of these assassinations or attempted assassinations are already known, others are revealed here for the first time. With keen insight, Volodarsky brings readers inside the assassinations of twenty individuals killed by order of the Kremlin in a revealing tell-all that “will fascinate students as well as general readers interested in international espionage” (Library Journal).
