The Triple Agent: The Al-Qaeda mole who infiltrated the CIA – Joby Warrick

Posted on September 28th, 2011 by in Current Affairs, War

The Triple Agent: The Al-Qaeda mole who infiltrated the CIA from Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Joby Warrick takes us deep inside the CIA’s secret war against al-Qaeda and 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.

This is a war that pits robotic planes and laser-guided missiles against a cunning enemy intent on unleashing carnage in American cities.

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. 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.
