Description
Following the September 11th, 2001 Al Qaeda attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the author, then the president of a private consulting firm specializing in intelligence collection and training, joined the Central Intelligence Agency's Clandestine Service Training Program along with about a hundred others. In this book, he describes those experiences for a popular audience, focusing on the personalities he encountered, rather than tradecraft. As he describes it, each chapter "is a month's mix of training, class bonding, personal reflection, and world events viewed through one officer's perspective."

J., Written by one of its own graduates, Class 11: Inside the CIA's First Post-9/11 Spy Class is a gripping insider's look at the first post-9/11 CIA training class-the most elite and secretive espionage training program in the country. Like all Americans, T. J. Waters was stunned, angry, and grief stricken by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. More than that, he wanted to take action to help prevent such an event from ever happening again. Waters was not alone. In the weeks following the attacks, the Central Intelligence Agency received over 150,000 resumes from people wanting to serve their nation as spies. More than one hundred students were admitted to the CIA's Clandestine Service to become Class 11, the first post-9/11 CIA training class. It was the largest and most diverse class in the agency's history. Joining Waters were a World Trade Center victim's fiancee, an NFL alumnus, a New York City comedian, a college athletics coach, a hostage negotiator, and a single mother. Class 11 is the real story of how this band of everyday Americans joined together to endure the challenge of a lifetime and serve their country. Against the backdrop of Osama bin Laden's videotaped taunts; the Washington, D.C., sniper attacks; and the loss of a CIA field officer in Afghanistan, Waters takes readers behind the scenes, where the trainees learned methods of subterfuge, mastering disguises, withstanding interrogations, and crossing into hostile territory without being detected. Class 11 is a fascinating and moving portrait of an extraordinary group of Americans with the courage and resolve to make a difference in the war on terror.BONUS AUDIO: Exclusive Author Interview"The classic movie interpretation of the spy world doesn't really reflect chasing Al Qaeda across the Afghan frontier.", [United States] :Tantor Audio :Made available through hoopla,2006., audios, can01-25-11ma1, computerc, data file, digital, hoopla digital., n-us---, online resourcecr, othersz, pcc, qanea06-11-15mn-, spoken wordspw, xv, 301 p. ;24 cm.

A gripping insider's look at the post-9/11 CIA In the weeks following the attacks of 9/11, the Central Intelligence Agency received over 150,000 résumés from people wanting to serve their nation. T. J. Waters became one of more than a hundred students admitted into the CIA's Clandestine Service to become Class 11, the first post- 9/11 training class. Filled with more information about the CIA's Clandestine Service Training Program than has ever been allowed into the public domain, Waters takes readers behind closed doors, where the trainees learned methods of subterfuge, mastering disguises, how to withstand interrogations, and how to cross into hostile territory undetected—and provides a moving portrait of ordinary Americans with the courage and determination to go to any lengths to protect their country.
