C rush the Cell demolishes, with simple logic, the edifice of
false "terror punditry" that has been laid, brick by brick,
since 9/11. A veteran of special ops, international diplomacy,
and bruising clasheswith federal lawenforcement agencies,
Michael Sheehan delivers in this book a two-part message: First,
thatwe'vewasted--and are continuing towaste--billions of dollars
on thewrong protectivemeasures, and second, that knowing
the bad guys'nextmove is paramount. Here, Sheehan showswhy
defensive fortresses don't work, but offensive operational intelligence
does. He peels back themystery surrounding terrorist cells,
explains just how"terror experts"andmembers of themedia are
playing into the terrorists' hands…and provides perhaps the
clearest picture yet of what modern terror-fighting is all about.

"Trenchant…scores some palpable hits…the depth and breadth
of Sheehan's experience give him an authority that is hard to
assail." -- The Economist

"Filled with startling its author, this book is smart,
tough, brave, and relentlessly honest."--Madeleine K. Albright,
former U.S. Secretary of State
