Klappentext

No more politics—just the truth about what we can and must do to protect ourselves.

Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt has dedicated his career to fighting terrorism. A twenty-nine-year U.S. Army veteran, he has helped take out an active terrorist camp, trained the FBI and Special Forces in counterterrorism tactics, and served as security adviser to six different Olympic Games.

And Colonel Hunt is angry. Why? Because even after the terrorist attacks on our country and on Americans around the world, the people charged with protecting us—the politicians and the bureaucrats in military and intelligence—still aren't getting the job done.

They Just Don't Get It provides a much-needed wake-up call to all Americans. As politicians posture and pundits bicker, we're losing sight of the fundamental problem: We're still not equipped to win the War on Terror. In fact, the terrorist threat is far worse than we feared, as made frighteningly clear by the fifty pages of documents published here for the first time—including a shocking manual taken from the terrorists themselves.

But instead of just complaining, Colonel Hunt tells us exactly what we must do—without regard to political game-playing—to emerge victorious in the challenge that history has given us. These are changes we can make at every level—as individual citizens, as a government, and as a military power. As he shows in this book, while the government and our military lead the fight to protect us, ordinary citizens can and must contribute.

They Just Don't Get It reveals:

• What you can do to keep your family safe

• How many of the government's recent "reforms” are mere window dressing or, worse, counterproductive

• How we can fight this war and still safeguard our civil liberties and the American way of life

• How to fix the intelligence disaster (and yes, the politicians in D.C. still haven't fixed it)

• How we got into this mess in the first place: it's mostly because our government let the problem fester for three decades

Colonel Hunt is no cautious bureaucrat or finger-pointer looking for political gain. He is a straight shooter with deep insight into what's happening in the War on Terror—on the ground and in the government. They Just Don't Get It lays out in clear and compelling terms the steps we must take—all of us—to win the War on Terror and ensure our survival as a free, proud, and strong nation.

From They Just Don't Get It

We're fighting a war for our very survival, so we'd better figure out how to win. That's why I'm writing this book—to show us how we can win, how we can protect ourselves. As a Fox News military analyst, I'm paid to offer insight into how our armed forces are conducting the fight against our enemies. But this book shows that to win the War on Terror we need to concern ourselves with more than just military tactics.

For one thing, we need to look at what our political leaders are doing. The sad truth is that they still don't get it.

Then there's intelligence. You've heard about our intelligence failures, but I doubt you know how bad it really is—even after the "reforms.” I'm going to tell you.

And another critical dimension to this story usually gets overlooked—what you can do. The fact is, you can do a lot. Hell, you must do a lot.
