A new book says one of the FBI’s most important counterterrorism programs was a huge lie.
It was designed to kill terrorists and other enemies of the United States, not protect them.
The book, Bombshell: How the FBI Built the Terror War, was published on Wednesday by HarperCollins.
The book, titled Bombshell, is the first comprehensive book to examine the secret, secretive and overzealous FBI counterterrorism efforts from its inception through its early years.
The effort has long been criticized for the way in which it is used and how it was mishandled.
The Justice Department and FBI denied any wrongdoing in the book, but it did not go unnoticed by lawmakers.
The author, investigative journalist and former Justice Department lawyer Edward J. Epstein, is a longtime critic of the government and the FBI.
He has previously accused the government of deliberately misrepresenting its counterterrorism efforts and of covering up evidence of its efforts.
“This book is the most important piece of evidence I’ve seen about how the FBI and the Department of Justice operated,” he told ABC News.
Epstein also said he has been contacted by other FBI agents and others in the Justice Department who have seen documents he obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request.
He said he plans to publish the book and is preparing a documentary about the FBI counterterrorism effort, titled “Bombshelves.”
“I think it’s important that there’s more out there,” he said.
“It’s not just about what happened in Boston, it’s about how these agents were trained, how they were supervised, how the entire FBI is organized.
I think it is a great opportunity for people to get a sense of what was going on.”
The book is based on research Epstein published in 2006 with the New York Times and has not been independently verified.
He was also able to get documents related to the FBI response to the Boston bombings that were never made public.
The FBI is not the only agency involved in counterterrorism.
The Department of Defense has also had a controversial history of using the counterterrorism effort.
It’s a long-running effort that has spawned numerous scandals.
In the 1990s, the Pentagon was plagued by an internal controversy over the use of military force in Afghanistan against al Qaeda.
A top Pentagon official, retired Army Gen. David Petraeus, was accused of ordering the use the Afghan war to overthrow the government, which the Pentagon said was the result of a faulty assessment by the Joint Special Operations Command, or JSOC, an elite military unit.
The Pentagon ultimately settled with the Taliban for a total of $40 billion, a small fraction of the estimated $600 billion cost of the wars.
The former general’s actions sparked public outrage and led to a congressional investigation into the Pentagon’s use of the war to topple the Taliban regime.
The Justice Department, which led the investigation, said that in the case of Petraeus, the inquiry was a failure because the report had not gone through a full, thorough and impartial investigation.
In 2011, the department and FBI agreed to a settlement of a separate criminal investigation by Congress and the inspector general into the misuse of military assets.
The department and the government paid a total $2.5 billion to settle the case.
The Department of Homeland Security is another agency involved.
The DHS was created by President George W. Bush in 2007 and has been plagued by scandal since its creation.
The agency has a history of misusing counterterrorism efforts, including a 2002 report that blamed a small number of Americans for a series of deadly bombings that occurred on American soil.
In that report, the agency was accused by lawmakers of using “a flawed and overly broad definition of terrorism to justify a host of counterterrorism operations, including the unlawful detention of Americans without charge or trial.”
The DHS has also been accused of using false information to justify the unlawful targeting of suspected militants abroad.
In 2012, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations concluded that the DHS was using false and misleading information to support its controversial drone strikes and was “effectively operating a program that does not have the requisite legal authority to conduct counterterrorism missions.”
The subcommittee found that DHS employees were aware of the existence of a “high risk” program that “may involve targeting Americans without due process of law, but the DHS did not attempt to stop or otherwise mitigate the threat.”
In a separate report released in March, the inspector-general for the Department in the U.S. Department of State found that the department had used “false information, misinformation and manipulation” to justify more than 2,000 drone strikes overseas and “misrepresented the value of the counterterrorism mission” when it comes to foreign relations.
In a report released last month, the Office of Special Counsel, an independent office of the Justice to investigate allegations of government misconduct, found that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and other top administration officials “repeatedly lied to Congress and lied to the American people about the scope of the drone program.”
The office said that the lack of transparency around the drone operations “constitutes a threat to national security, public safety,
