Extreme Measures by Vince Flynn ***

Two terrorist cells intercepted, but one remains, targeted at Washington. DC. Extreme Measures is the race against time to stop the third cell. But this is not your ordinary post 9/11 thriller. The spy vs terrorist plots fade behind the liberals vs CIA conflict, and author Vince Flynn comes down hard on the side of liberal are short-sighted, political, naive, dangerous fools and we all owe our safety to a few violent, clandestine operators.

If you love this message presented in a melodramatic, un-nuanced polemic, then this is the book for you. Otherwise, it's a bit tedious, predictable, and repetitive.
