What People are Saying About This
T. Michael Andrews’ Insider’s Guide is an insightful, investigative look at the danger lurking at America’s borders [and offers] fresh solutions on how to secure America in the heat of the drug war.
Jeffrey Scott Shapiro, former Washington, D.C. prosecutor, investigative journalist, and author
This book addresses the culture of insecurity telegraphed down the federal chains of command from command central in the District of Columbia. More cross jurisdictional communication, more decentralization and more local involvement will bear much low hanging inexpensive fruit in our collective effort to stop the flow of drugs across our borders.
Lawrence Seligman, former police chief for the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and Tohono O’odham Nation
T. Mike Andrews, as a Washington insider, has written an excellent book exposing the war within the ‘war on drugs,’ waged daily by federal and state law enforcement agencies in their fight for ‘turf’ . . . . This book is a must-read for anyone involved in or considering a career in law enforcement.
Barton J. Fears, State’s Prosecutor
