When the U.S. Embassy in Beirut was decimated by a car bomb in 1983, it was not just a symbolic strike against America. Someone deliberately targeted those they believed were calling the shots in this volatile region--the CIA. Nearly the entire Middle East CIA Station was wiped out. The agency called on "Captain Crunch" Keith Hall, a former Marine who was one of the CIA's best men in the field. Keith arrived in Beirut with the full resources of a battered agency behind him--and a difficult mission in front.
