Nada Bakos

-Former CIA Analyst-

 “A revealing and utterly engrossing account of the campaign to stop the terrorist mastermind behind the rise of ISIS. Former intelligence officer Nada Bakos takes the reader deep inside the CIA’s secret war in Iraq with a fast-paced narrative that is at turns thrilling, funny, maddening and remarkably candid.” 

—Joby Warrick, author of Black Flags: The Rise of ISIS, winner of the Pulitzer Prize 

 “The Targeter reads like a suspense novel written in Hollywood. But it’s the true story of an unsung hero working to keep America safe and speaking hard truths to those in power. I relied on public servants like Nada to fight the Islamic State. Our country is indebted to their rigor, tradecraft, and dedicated war zone service, which carries a personal toll. This is the first inside account of what it’s really like.” 

—Brett McGurk, Former Special Presidential Envoy for Campaign to Defeat ISIS
