We finished the June 2008 book today - Ghost: Confessions of a Counterterrorism Agent, by Fred Burton.

This is a great review of the terror attacks in the 80s and 90s from a State Department DSS counterterrorism agent on the front lines. Fred Burton was one of three agents in the CT group when he joined the department, and led the department's expansion into a full CT operation. Some interesting facts about Lybia, the KGB's role in the assassination of Pakistan's president AND the US Ambassador to Pakistan. He even shares some little-known information on Lee Harvey Oswald.
