From 1964 to 1994, Revell directed or participated in virtually every major FBI investigation--including the JFK assassination, Watergate, the Iran hostage crisis, and Gulf War antiterrorist operations. Now he discloses why, after Hoover's death in 1972, he and other reform-minded agents moved to modernize the FBI, and how he championed special FBI units, such as Behavioral Sciences and Hostage Rescue. He also divulges his role as the senior FBI representative to the National Security Council and his direction of all international operations--including tracking the kidnappers and killers of hostages in Beirut, international mafias weapons smuggling, and French and Japanese industrial espionage. More importantly, Revell proposes drastic reforms for improving the current system of law enforcement and justice, and bluntly analyzes what went wrong at incidents like the Branch Davidian tragedy in Waco and the World Trade Center and Oklahoma City bombings.
