Collateral Damage: Petraeus / Power / Politics And The Abuse Of Privacy (Paperback)
This story is what every American fears: the damage that can be caused by our government's electronic overreach -- the collection of everything about everyone -- and the catastrophe that can occur when government agents are given free rein to invade people's private communications, with the boundless tools available to them.
This story goes far beyond the narrative of one powerful man's unbridled ego, ill-timed infidelity, a jealous mistress and her relentless efforts to haunt an innocent family along with the world's most iconic military leaders.
This book provides never-disclosed details about a historic FBI investigation and how agents snooped into a private citizen's personal emails, cynically turning the victim into an international sensation in one of the most widely reported sex scandals to rock the United States government.
In this memoir, you will learn about the fictitious proxy scandal that was created, complete with previously unpublished emails and text-message conversations.
This book chronicles, in postmodern form, the untold scandal behind the scandal.
