The remarkable memoir of an Iraqi woman who escaped from captivity in Baghdad and became America's leading undercover counter-terrorist expert. Here is the story of an anonymous counter-terrorism expert, a young woman, who, in disguise, has penetrated front groups of anti-American terrorist organizations operating in this country. In this edge-of-the-seat memoir, she chronicles her escape from Iraq via Iran to Israel, following a great tragedy that befell her family at the hands of Saddam Hussein. She also details how she became involved in intelligence gathering for the United States, her adoptive country, while working for an antiterrorism group. With her unique insights into how terrorist groups veil their true operations by various means, she was able to infiltrate and identify dangerous terrorist organizations and entities working undetected in the United States. Terrorist Hunter provides fascinating and shocking information on how federal agencies, chiefly the FBI and the State Depart-ment, repeatedly ignored or mishandled important information she provided. She reveals her role in exposing terrorist supporters who the White House considered to be friends, in preventing the government from funding terrorist activities, and in the deportation of terrorists and their supporters. She also reveals how she discovered a billion-dollar scheme that rich Saudi Arabians set up to filter money to terrorist groups, through charities and businesses in the United States -- information that the FBI sat on for years, until after 9-11.… (mer)

Een onthullend verhaal van een joodse vrouw uit Irak, die een van de belangrijkste moslimterrorisme-experts ter wereld is. Vermomd als moslimvrouw infiltreerde ze in de VS in vele radicaal islamitische groeperingen om vitale informatie te verkrijgen over banden met organisaties als Hamas, Hezbollah en AlQaeda.

Na de executie van haar vader door handlangers van Saddam Hoessien - hij werd ervan beschuldigd voor Israël te spioneren - en twee jaar huisarrest in Bagdad, besluit ze te vluchten. Via Iran en Israël komt ze in de VS terecht, waar ze voor een geheime dienst gaat werken.

Op onnavolgbare wijze vertelt ze hoe ze door haar unieke kennis en ervaring van de moslimcultuur kon infiltereren in terroristische organisaties zonder ontdekt te worden.

De terroristenjaagster is een verbijsterend verhaal van een zeer moedige vrouw die ver voor 11 september haar angstaanjagende bevindingen doorgaf aan de CIA en de FBI. Zij negeerden haar waarschuwingen echter...

A person who made a difference in the war on terrorism. The author, a non-governmental antiterrorism researcher largely using public records such as tax forms, spent years unraveling the web of jihadist organizations like al-Quaeda in the US. Unlikle many investigators, she is fluent in Arabic. Identified in lawsuits by her targets, so-called charitable organizations, Rita Katz often attended Islamic meetings literally undercover in a burkha to hear what the Arab speakers said...speeches often scandalously inflammatory, as opposed to what was reported. Frequently hindered by the FBI which, even after 9/11, took in information but gave out none, she provided to government and press background on the worldwide terrorist movement and its financial ties to the US. Highly recommended. ( )

This book gives a rather disturbing picture of what is behind all those charity/humanitarian organizations, describes heavy bureaucratization of security services, lack of coordination [and even will for cooperation] between various government agencies and paints a rather grim picture of every-day security in general.

If you are interested in topic of international efforts against terrorism this book is for you.

Recommended. ( )

Sehr gute Darstellung der Arbeit Islamistischer Organisationen und Terrorgruppen in den USA. Ein erschütternder Tatsachenbericht, so spannend geschrieben wie ein Agententhriller. ( )

The incredible story of then-anonymous Rita Katz. Katz is an Iraqi Jew who, at a very young age, fled the country with her family after the Hussein regime executed her father as an Israeli spy. After growing up and marrying in Israel, she and her husband moved to the US, where she - much to her shock - would again be confronted with the ugly face of Islamic antisemitism. This time she was better equipped to fight back, using her knowledge of Arabic to infiltrate radical mosques and uncover terror-financing groups operating under charitable fronts- and she's been wildly successful, as attested by the fact that anybody who has paid close attention to the news over the past six years will have seen her name pop up at some point. Rita's personal story is first heartbreaking, then thrilling, and her insights are of value to anybody interested in the nuts and bolts of how terrorism is funded. Her frustration with the government is palpable- and her skepticism proved to be well-founded very recently when Katz's SITE Institute handed one of the recent bin Laden videos over to the White House prior to As-Sahab's official release, on the condition that they don't publicly release the tape until al-Qaeda did. It was leaked, of course, rendering worthless techniques SITE had spent years and countless man-hours honing. ( )
