Join the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History and BookWorks for “An Evening with Henry Crumpton,” a CIA spy and counter terrorism expert. Crumpton will tell the spellbinding story of his high-risk, action-packed career while illustrating the growing importance of America's intelligence officers and their secret missions at 7 p.m. on May 24, 2012, at the Museum.
Tickets are available at the Bookworks' website, and also at the store. (Tickets will be available at the venue on the night of the event if any seats remain.)
With the rank of ambassador at large, Crumpton served as the coordinator for counterterrorism at the U.S. Department of State from August 2005 until February 2007. He joined the Central Intelligence Agency in 1981 and spent most of his twenty-four-year career working undercover in the foreign field. He is the recipient of the Distinguished Intelligence Medal, the CIA's highest award for achievement. Crumpton received a B.A. from the University of New Mexico and a master's, with honors, from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
About the book: For a crucial period, Henry Crumpton led the CIA's global covert operations against America's terrorist enemies, including al Qaeda. In the days after 9/11, the CIA tasked Crumpton to organize and lead the Afghanistan campaign. With Crumpton's strategic initiative and bold leadership, from the battlefield to the Oval Office, U.S. and Afghan allies routed al Qaeda and the Taliban in less than ninety days after the Twin Towers fell. At the height of combat against the Taliban in late 2001, there were fewer than five hundred Americans on the ground in Afghanistan, a dynamic blend of CIA and Special Forces. The campaign changed the way America wages war.
There are two ticket levels available - a single copy of Henry's new book with a ticket that admits one for $27.95 plus tax, and a "Couples Ticket" with a single copy of the book with a ticket that admits two, for $32.95.
