As a spoiler alert I am a retired Agent of the FBI and served under Terry Turchie. I can count senior former members of the FBI I know personally and would feel comfortable sitting down and drinking a beer with on one finger. That would be Terry and it would not be my middle finger. Terry went up the chain of command of the FBI without ever losing touch with the people he worked with on his way up. He is a man of integrity and like the old E. F. Hutton commercial when he talks what he has to say is worth listening to. Or something like that. Jerry Webb
Up front, I am a colleague of Terry's and worked with him in several capacities. He is a true professional who had a very successful career in the FBI. He was the leader of the multi-disciplined team that finally identified, apprehended and successfully prosecuted Ted Kaczynzki, the Unabomber, as well as creating the infrastructure, organizing and managing the investigation that led to the arrest of Eric Rudolph, the Olympic Bomber. He has the credibility and integrity you can believe in. This book is his sixth work. The previous have all been well researched, well written and relevant. In Their Own Words is also meticulously researched and succinctly written. The way the authors have presented these facts, their premiss is clearly supported with hard evidence. I found this book to be very compelling and a wake up call to what is occurring in our political world. Highly recommend this book.
"In Their Own Words" exposes the Democratic Party's vision for the "Fundamental Transformation" of America through a strategy of first "democratic socialism" which will then lead to the ultimate democratic goal of full blown communism. This strategy originates from revolutionary and violent groups from the 1960's and 70's aided and abetted by Russia, China, and Cuba. From now on when I hear the buzzwords of racist, white supremacy, anti-police rhetoric, green new deal, sanctuary cities, free higher education, internationalist, attacks on religion, climate change etc., I understand the underlying democratic socialist meaning being conveyed to the public thanks to this book. The Comey letter to newly confirmed director James Comey by employees of the FBI was also a real eye opener to me. The authors get to the real roots of what democratic socialism really means and how dangerous this strategy is to our freedoms.
