“Counterstrike,” by THOM SHANKER and ERIC SCHMITT, tells the story of how a group of analysts created an innovative and effective way to fight terrorism. This new way, unbeknownst to most Americans, was in sharp contrast to the cowboy slogans typical of the U.S. government’s public posture. Currently the Pentagon correspondent for The New York Times, Shanker previously served as foreign editor at The Chicago Tribune. Schmitt is a Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times senior writer, who covers terrorism and national security issues. A book signing will follow their Forum.
