When the towers fell on September 11, 2001, nowhere were the reverberations more powerfully felt than at Langley. Almost overnight, an intelligence organization converted itself into a weaponized warfighting machine, one that raised questions about how far America would go to pursue al-Qa'eda. Now, nearly two decades later, ex-CIA executive and media pundit Philip Mudd comes forward with a never-before-told account of the 9/11 story, one that illuminates the profound impact that enhanced interrogation techniques and other initiatives known internally as "The Program" took on those who administered them. With unprecedented access to officials at the highest levels-including Director George Tenet-Mudd goes beyond the 2014 Senate report to show us what life was really like at the CIA prisons and why interrogators were forced to make decisions that they still ponder today. As troubling as it is revelatory, Black Site shows us the tragedy and triumph of the CIA during its most difficult hour.
