About the Author

Philip Mudd served as Deputy Director of the Counterterrorist Center at the Central Intelligence Agency and later as Deputy Director of the National Security Branch at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He is an independent consultant and a Research Fellow at the New America Foundation.


"This gripping narrative effectively conveys the breadth of the challenges confronted by counterterrorism analysis. Philip Mudd's perspective-that of someone who sought to understand the unintelligible-is a valuable addition to extant histories of 9/11 and what followed."-Richard H. Immerman, Temple University

"A riveting, behind-the-scenes account of the world of counterterrorism. Mudd has been at the heart of the chase for the world's most dangerous people and makes us feel we are there with him."-Tina Brown, editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast/Newsweek

"Takedown is a must read for anyone who needs to understand terrorism, intelligence or the inner workings of the government's national security apparatus"-John Miller, Senior Correspondent at CBS News

"Philip Mudd is an intelligence officer whose analysis is rarely wrong, and a public servant whose moral compass is always right. Mudd has the unique ability to not only find meaning out of chaos, but also the ability to clearly pass on that information to the policy makers who need it."-George J. Tenet, Former Director of Central Intelligence
