Rita Katz is a young Iraqi-born woman who
escaped to Israel from Iraq and eventually moved to the United
States, where she became a counter-terrorism expert. Because much
of her work is done undercover and she has penetrated numerous
gatherings of Muslim radicals, her existence has been kept a secret
until now. Through her work she has helped government agencies to
collaborate with one another. Her investigations have resulted in
the deportation of terrorists who lived and prospered in the United
States and prevented the U.S. government from unwittingly funding
front groups of terror.
Terrorist Hunter is her story as an anonymous
counter-terrorism expert, who penetrated front groups of
anti-American terrorist organizations operating in this country. In
this memoir, she chronicles her escape from Iraq via Iran to Israel
and details how she became involved in intelligence gathering for
the United States, her adoptive country, while working for an
antiterrorism group. With her unique insights into how terrorist
groups veil their true operations by various means, she has been
able to identify dangerous terrorist organizations and entities
working undetected in the United States.
