This is a brand new hardcover book with dust jacket entitled "Never Again - Securing America and Restoring Justice" by John Ashcroft, Former Attorney General. Copyright Center Street - First
Edition, October 2006. Retail price $24.99 - not price-clipped.
The most controversial attorney general in U.S. history tells the untold story behind the war on terror in post-9/11 America.
"John Ashcroft's service as U.S. attorney general began with turmoil: a loss to a deceased challenger in his U.S. Senate reelection
campaign and a tumultuous confirmation battle. Then, on September 11, 2001, his job was transformed into the greatest leadership challenge as attorney general has ever faced. Highly classified intelligence briefings, secret surveillance of terror cells, and terror war councils with President Bush gave Ashcroft a uniquely comprehensive - and uniquely chilling - view of the threats to American security.
In "Never Again", Ashcroft breaks his silence about historic events that transpired during his term of office - including the largest terrorist attack in U.S. history, the enactment and defense of the Patriot Act, the Robert Hanssen spy scandal, the execution of Timothy McVeigh, and the recently discovered domestic surveillance program authorized by President Bush.
In this provocative book, readers will meet the man behind the title, hear his take on the dangers to and within America from outside forces, and discover what he did to repair the serious breaches in our country's security. "Never Again" is a fascinating and probing look at what Ashcroft believes will ultimately make America safe."
