Consequences: An Intelligence Officer's War

by David Grantham
“An intelligent book about intelligence … informative and insightful … a brave and important book.” – MJV Literary Reviews

“Told with grit, honesty, and remarkable intensity, this is a must-read for anyone interested in the inside story of America’s various counterintelligence missions in Kuwait, Afghanistan, and Iraq.” – The Prairies Book Review

“Grantham weaves the clandestine activities of his intelligence missions into a gripping narrative, showing that facts are actually more fantastic than fiction.” – BookView Review

“Very little has been written on the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations efforts in the global war on terror.  Consequences by David Grantham provides a unique and fascinating window into the nuts and bolts of OSI counterintelligence operations. You won’t be disappointed.” – Fred Burton, author of Beirut Rules: The Murder of a CIA Station Chief and Hezbollah’s War Against America

In 2006, David Grantham was fresh out of college and serving as a counterintelligence officer with the elite and secretive Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Iraq was veering toward civil war. The U.S. military desperately needed better on-the-ground intelligence to turn the tide. Grantham found himself in Kuwait and Afghanistan, then at Iraq’s infamous American prison, Camp Bucca. Not only was Bucca the breeding ground for the Islamic State, it was in southern Iraq, where America’s deadly fight with Iran was an open secret.

Consequences is both a riveting behind-the-scenes look at intelligence operations at the height of the Iraq war, and a charming and sobering story of one man’s journey through the pleasures and consequences that come with wartime intelligence.
