For the first time ever, the explosive truth behind the world's most secret Special Operations organization A top-secret U.S. Army Special Operations unit has been running covert missions all over the world, from leading death squads to the hideout of drug baron Pablo Escobar to capturing Saddam Hussein and, in one of the greatest special operations missions of all time, helping to track down al-Qa'eda leader Osama bin Laden. "The Activity," as it became known to insiders, has achieved near-mythical status, even among the world's Special Operations elite. Hidden from the politicians and the government bean counters, the Activity has been carrying out deniable operations, preparing the way for Delta and SEAL Team Six. Now journalist Michael Smith gets inside this clandestine military team to expose their explosive history and secrets. Smith has spoken to many former members of the Activity and reveals the incredible truth behind the world's most secret Special Operations organization, a unit that is at the forefront of the War on Terror.
The deaths of four British soldiers, two of them ex SAS, appear at first to be accidental. In fact, they have been targeted by a group of hired assassins, known as the Clinic. This group of contract killers is systematically tracking down elite servicemen and killing them one by one... Desperate to stop the murders, a group of four men, the Feather Men, are recruited to hunt down the Clinic and avenge the soldiers' deaths. But will they get to them in time and what's driving the Clinic's own brutal form of justice? Ranulph Fiennes, himself a former SAS officer, uses his unique knowledge to craft this amazing thriller, now a major film, featuring Robert De Niro, Jason Statham and Clive Owen.

The first book about SEAL Team Six and Bin Laden America's most secret Special Forces unit does not even have a name. Formed as the 'Intelligence Support Activity', it has had a succession of innocuous titles to hide its ferocious purpose. It exists to 'undertake activities only when other intelligence or operational support elements are unavailable or inappropriate'. Translated from Pentagon-speak, this means operating undercover in the world's most dangerous places, penetrating enemy organizations including Al Qa'eda, Hamas and Islamic Jihad. 'The Activity' combines the spy work of the CIA with the commando/SAS role of the Green Berets. It not only provides the intelligence on the ground - it translates it into 'direct action'. This is the unit that located Saddam Hussein, and recently led the intelligence operation that found and killed Osama Bin Laden. This is the untold story behind the world's most secret Special Operations organisation.

ASSASSINATIONS the World s Clandestine Killer Elite
State terrorism to sophisticated intelligence services who "murder by a fall guy" are the general subjects of this book. Analysis of specific assassinations from a counter-intelligence point-of-view include Leon Trotsky, Archbishop Oscar Romero, Ambassador Otto Dubs, Ambassador John Mein, Pope John Paul II, John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr.1 - TROTSKYThe NKVD (the KGB's predecessor) followed Leon Trotsky, looking for opportunity. Recruited assassin Ramon Mercader lured Sylvia Ageloff, Trotsky's former translator and secretary, to Mexico City. There, she contacted Trotsky who asked her to do some temporary secretarial work. Ramon daily drove Sylvia to and picked her up from Trotsky's compound. Ramon gained Trotsky's confidence before assassinating him.2 - ROMEROArchbishop Oscar Romero's assassination was blamed on a rightist political leader. However, a FMLN defector described in detail how his organization was responsible. Even after O.A.S. Truth Commission proceedings the true story is unknown.3 - DUBSAmbassador Otto Dubs was kidnapped and taken to the Kabul Hotel. Within minutes two Soviet police advisors and the top officers of the Afghan police force were on-scene, covering a hotel room without telephone service. A police officer shouted and relayed messages through the keyhole, discovering the kidnappers wanted a prisoner exchange. American attempts to get high level Afghanistan involvement were thwarted, the media scenario played to look like the police were resisting revolutionary activity. The one kidnapper surviving the assault was beaten to death in police custody.4 - MEINTwo blocks away, on a heavily trafficked, Guatemala City boulevard, the Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR), a Marxist-Leninist revolutionary organization, waited for Ambassador John Mein's chauffeur-driven car. They blocked the road with a car rented by a French recruited conspirator, Michele Firk. Police tracked her rental to a FAR safehouse. Firk's only option was to put her gun to her head.5 - JOHN PAUL IIMehmet Ali Agca stood in St. Peter's Square on May 13, 1981, fired two shots into Pope John Paul II. Threatened with being transferred to a common cell full of Catholics he told his story in exchange for segregation. Bechir Selenek, a Turkish fugitive, introduced Agca to three officers of the Bulgarian intelligence service, Durzhavna Sigurnost. They recruited him to assassinate the Pope with their promise of $1.5 million West German marks. He didn't know it at the time but Agca owed his life to the nun who tripped him.6 - KENNEDYPresident John F. Kennedy was obsessed with killing Cuba 's Fidel Castro who publicly warned Kennedy to back off. In a presidential speech Kennedy gave a prearranged signal to a CIA recruited assassin, Rolando Cubela, to kill Castro. This nailed both Kennedy coffins. Lee Harvey Oswald was likely recruited in Japan and twenty months later he recanted his defection.Much controversy surrounds Oswald's shooting ability and the rifle he left behind. Oswald's activities after the assassination are just as perplexing, his killing of police officer J.D. Tippet who was known to visit Jack Ruby's club. Not long after Oswald himself was dead, a "fall guy" at the hands of another assassin.7 - MLKBoth King and President Kennedy's assassinations have very similar KGB/DGI modus operandi. MLK's assassination started after James Earl Ray's prison escape. He fled to Montreal where met Raoul. Meanwhile, MLK met Kennedy, his brother, and Burke Marshall and was told to terminate contact with MLK's close advisor, a high level Communist, Stanley D. Levison. Raoul and Ray check into a 422� S Main St. apartment with its small window overlooking the Lorraine Motel. MLK switches his reservations at the last minute to the Lorraine. Eyewitness accounts of Ray and Raoul's activities in the rooming house at the time of the shooting vary. A high level penetration in King's camp kept Raoul informe
Generation Kill is about the young men sent to fight their nation's first open-ended war since Vietnam. Despite the flurry of media images to come of the recent wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, you have never really met any of these people, who serve as front-line troops. For whatever reason, the media simply doesn't get them. As we all know, news accounts of the last two wars focused almost exclusively on battlefield imagery of high-tech weapons wreaking astounding destruction, comply with analysis from retired army grandees and other experts, punctuated by the odd heart-warming patriotic sound-bite. The troops themselves play a role in the media's presentation of recent wars rather like extras in The Triumph of the Will. They are everywhere yet somehow invisible. When they speak you get the sense that what they are saying has been carefully scripted. Now Generation Kill tells the soldiers' story in their own words. The narrative focuses on a platoon of 23 marines, many of them veterans of Afghanistan, whose elite reconnaissance unit spearheaded the blitzkrieg on Iraq. This is the story of young men that have been trained to become ruthless killers. It's about surviving death. It's about taking part in a war many questioned before it even began. Evan Wright was the only reporter with First Recon, which operated well ahead of most other forces, usually behind enemy lines. They were among the first marines sent into the fight and one of the last units still engaged on the outskirts of Iraq, even after the city centre fell. Generation Kill is not just a combat chronicle but an inside look at how people fighting in war actually experience it. It is both an action narrative like Black Hawk Down and a detailed portrait of a generation at war along the lines of Band of Brothers. It is not a book you are going to forget in a hurry...
What makes a serial killer? Only one man really knows. FBI Special Agent and expert in criminal profiling and behavioural science, John Douglas. A man who has looked evil in the eye and made a vocation of understanding it. Now retired, Douglas can let us inside the FBI elite serial crime unit and into the disturbed minds of some of the most savage serial killers in the world. The man who was the inspiration for Special Agent Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs and who lent the film's makers his expertise explains how he invented and established the practice of criminal profiling; what it was like to submerge himself mentally in the world of serial killers to the point of 'becoming' both perpetrator and victim; and individual case histories including those of Jeffrey Dahmer, Charles Manson, Ted Bundy and the Atlanta child murders. With the fierce page-turning power of a bestselling novel, yet terrifyingly true, Mindhunter is a true crime classic.
