Bill Gertz talked about his book The Failure Factory: How Unelected Bureaucrats, Liberal Democrats, and Big Government Republicans Are Undermining America’s Security and Leading Us to War (Crown Forum; 1 edition (September 30, 2008). Mr. Gertz argues that high-level bureaucrats in the State Department, White House, Pentagon, and Central Intelligence Agency have repeatedly undermined the Bush administration’s national security policies. Mr. Gertz says that these unelected officials - liberals from both political parties - have pursued their own agendas toward countries like Iran, China, North Korea, and Iraq and have weakened U.S. security as a result. The guest interviewer was Frank Gaffney, president and CEO of the Center for Security Policy.
Bill Gertz is a defense and national security reporter for The Washington Times. Mr. Gertz is the author of six books, including Betrayal: How the Clinton Administration Undermined American Security and Breakdown: How America’s Intelligence Failures Led to September 11. close
