9780061555879: Your Government Failed You CD: Breaking the Cycle of National Security Disasters

"Your government failed you . . . and I failed you."

Richard Clarke's dramatic statement to the grieving families during the 9-11 Commission hearings touched a raw nerve across America. Not only had our government failed to prevent the 2001 terrorist attacks, but it has proven itself, time and again, incapable of handling the majority of our most crucial national security issues, from Iraq to Katrina and beyond. This is not just a temporary failure of our current leadership—it is a systemic problem, the result of a pattern of incompetence that must be understood, confronted, and prevented.

In Your Government Failed You, Clarke looks at why these unconscionable failures have continued and how America and the world can succeed against the terrorists. Clarke minces no words in his examination of the breadth and depth of the mediocrity, entropy and collapse endemic in America's national security programs. In order for the United States to stop its string of strategic mistakes, we first need to understand why they happen. Clarke gives us a privileged, if horrifying, inside look into the debacle of the government policies, discovering patterns in the failure and offering ways to stop the cycle once and for all.

From AudioFile:

The title of this book is from the riveting opening words of the author's testimony before the 9/11 Commission. Richard Clarke, ex-White House anti-terror advisor under Clinton and Bush II, details the many ways the current Administration, and former ones, have failed the American people. Using his insider knowledge from over thirty years of government service, Clarke explores such systemic failures as Medicare, Hurricane Katrina, and the War in Iraq, to name but a few. One of the most interesting features of his discussion is that he also offers strategies for repairing this all-but-broken system. Clarke not only writes well, he is an outstanding narrator. His delivery style is as clear, brisk, and emphatic as his writing. The result is a totally successful package. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
