A CIA Guide to Assassination The Perfect Kill: 21 Laws for Assassins, Robert B. Baer, Blue Rider Press, 352 pages


On the night of Feb. 12, 2008, Amad Mughniyeh, one of Hezbollah’s most notorious field commanders, stepped out of his apartment in the affluent Damascus neighborhood of Kfar Sousa. As Mughniyeh walked down the street toward his car, a directed blast of shrapnel exploded from the spare tire affixed to a parked SUV, killing him instantly. The operation that killed Mughniyeh was carried out by the Israeli Mossad _____________________.


Mughniyeh had for a long time been a high-profile target of Western intelligence services, dating back to the 1980s when he had managed a reign of terror in Lebanon and across the globe that killed American, Israeli, and French officials and civilians. Considered the world’s most lethal Islamic militant after Osama bin Laden, Mughniyeh was the suspected mastermind responsible for the 1983 bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, the 1985 hijacking of a TWA airliner, and many other high-profile attacks.


In his new book The Perfect Kill: 21 Rules for Assassins, former CIA case officer Robert Baer uses Mughniyeh’s career and tactics as a case study of the dos and don’ts of political assassination.Scissors-32x32.png
