In this episode of the Pen and Sword podcast from Stratfor, a RANE company, Emily Donahue speaks with Sarah Carlson about her new book, In the Dark of War: A CIA Officer’s Inside Account of the U.S. Evacuation from Libya.

Carlson served in the CIA’s Counterterrorism center and was an experienced mid-career analyst when she was assigned to Tripoli, just about a year after the overrun of the U.S. mission in Benghazi. It was a dangerous assignment, in a country that was spinning deeper into a civil war.  This podcast is available at Stratfor Worldview - the world’s leading geopolitical intelligence platform.
