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
