The deputy assistant secretary of State for intelligence and research under President Ronald Reagan offers a harsh judgment of DCI George J. Tenet's performance over the past year: "[I]t appears that he has not served Congress and the American people well on the question of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction and alleged Iraqi ties to al Qaeda. He seems to have engaged in over- and under-statement; highly selective release of facts and assessments, including the clever use of 'key judgments' and executive summaries; failure to correct exaggerated statements by the president and others; and failure to stop a maverick Pentagon operation producing intelligence as art."

According to Friedman, Parameters 31 (Summer 2001), "[t]his work reports details from a three-day meeting at University College [Cork, Ireland] during March 1999 at which experts on terrorism, principally from academia and law enforcement, presented and discussed their views on future developments in terrorism.... Because so many of the participants in the colloquium which produced this book came from the field of law enforcement, it is not surprising that a considerable amount of the content deals with terrorism and its relationship to organized crime."
