"Few Americans know more about Yemen than Hull, who served there in the years immediately following 9/11."--Steve Kroft, 60 Minutes--Steve Kroft"60 Minutes" (04/17/2011)
"High-Value Target is not only a fascinating firsthand account by the ambassador who helped defeat al Qaeda in Yemen the first time but also a playbook for defeating them the second time."--Gregory Johnsen, an expert on Yemen based at Princeton University and author of the Wag al-Waq blog on Yemen--Gregory Johnsen (04/14/2011)
"High-Value Target is important reading for anyone wishing to understand the complicated nature of Yemen. I witnessed the terrorist threat there firsthand, having served as the FBI case agent for the investigation into the USS Cole bombing and for subsequent threats and attacks after 9/11. I appreciate Ambassador Hull's efforts to balance very real counterterrorism needs in Yemen with political pressures from Washington that seek to put U.S. counterterrorism emphasis elsewhere."--Ali Soufan, former FBI supervisory special agent-- (04/16/2011)
"Former U.S. Amb. Edmund Hull provides fascinating insights into how al Qaeda in Yemen was crushed between 2001 and 2004 and why it was able to return, with greater virulence, as al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in 2009. This book is must reading for those trying to divine what lies ahead for Yemen in a changing Arab world."--Trudy Rubin, Worldview columnist, Philadelphia Inquirer-- (04/15/2011)
"[High-Value Target] suggests what much of American diplomacy is going to be like for the coming decades, and deserves close attention."--Amb. Marc Grossman, Special Representative to Afghanistan and Pakistan-- (04/18/2011)
