Book review: assessing the new mantra of the War on
Terror: “find the enemy, ensure that the enemy
is fixed in that location, defeat the enemy”.
LSE Review of Books
(28 Aug 2012)
Two intelligence experts with unique access to inside sources reveal the story behind the evolution of America’s new approach to counter terrorism. On 9/11 the US had effectively no counterterrorism doctrine, but fast forward ten years and Osama bin Laden is dead, Al Qaeda is organizationally ruined and pinned in the tribal areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan, and there has been no major attack on American soil. Meor Alif thoroughly recommends the book, especially its use of case studies of those linked to Al Qaeda.
Find, Fix, Finish: Inside the Counterterrorism Campaigns That Killed Bin Laden and Devastated Al Qaeda. Aki Peritz and Eric
Rosenbach. Public Affairs. March 2012.
