White House Situation Room
- A National Nerve Center
Inside the White House Situation Room . . . . Michael Donley, Cornelius
O'Leary, and John Montgomery
A "Must Read" from the CIA's Studies in Intelligence semi annual edition
- List members may be interested to learn of a book, _Nerve Center_ by Michael K. Bohn, published by Potomac Books (formerly Pergammon-Brassey's).
Below is the blurb for the book. I know nothing more, but would be interested if list members have any further information on this book:
"The White House Situation Room is arguably the most important facility in the most important building in the world. As the President's intelligence and alert center, it provides vital communications and crisis management capabilities to the commander in chief and his advisers. Yet so little is known about the Situation Room that, until the publication of _Nerve Center_, the public's knowledge of it has been based almost entirely on its portrayal by the entertainment industry. Michael K. Bohn, a former director of the Situation Room for President Reagan, dispels the myths and describes the real-life drama of this critical facility. This insider's account provides fascinating reading for anyone who wants to know more about how the modern White House really operates. [includes] 20 B&W photos."
