We had the experience but missed the meaning.
- T.S. Eliot
Jim Zirin's new book The Mother Court is "a story engagingly, articulately and above all lovingly told".
Former CIA General Counsel John Rizzo saw Directors of Central Intelligence come and go as controversy increasingly enveloped the Agency. Author of the bestselling book, The Company Man, he tells Jim how he reacted to the “torture memos” of the Bush administration, and how he couldn’t stop the CIA from destroying tapes of the “enhanced interrogation” of al Qaeda chieftain Abu Zubayda.
