In The Threat on the Horizon, eminent national security scholar Loch K. Johnson, offers a comprehensive insider's account of the Aspin-Brown Commission of 1995-1996. Based on a close sifting of government documents and media reports, interviews with participants, and, above all, his own eyewitness impressions, Johnson's thorough history offers a unique window onto why the terrorist attacks of 2001 caught the United States by surprise and why the
intelligence community failed again in 2002 when it predicted that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction.

James J. Wirtz, Dean of the School of International Graduate Studies, Naval Postgraduate School Loch Johnson's account of the Aspin-Brown commission will be viewed as a classic in the literature on American government and intelligence studies. His insider story reveals how official Washington thought about intelligence in the years before the 9/11 tragedy and how the commission's work fits into the ongoing effort at intelligence reform. The Threat on the Horizon tells a fascinating tale about a part of government that is generally inaccessible to citizens and
scholars alike.
