    Good book -- The Black Banners, by Ali Soufan (former FBI agent)

    Just read a really good book. It's not related to arms, per se, but rather to global terrorism and the fight to corral it. As viewed from a former agent who was front-and-center with the pre- and post-9/11 investigations involving Al Qaeda.

    The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against al-Qaeda, by Ali Soufan, former FBI agent (from 1997-2005).

    What's unique about this book is how it's drawn tightly from the guy's specific notes and first-hand accounts of the investigations and interviews he and other close colleagues documented. Apparently highly lauded and respected throughout the FBI for his unwavering honesty and forthright truthfulness ... as well as being apparently roundly reviled and 'hated' throughout much of the CIA for exposing lies and deceits regarding these related investigations.

    Highly recommended.

    If the CIA hates it, it must be pretty decent.
