“Compelling, shocking, and gritty with intrigue.”

Publishers Weekly

“A real eye-opener that questions how well the country’s security is being protected.”
—Kirkus Reviews

The Terror Factory is a damning exposé of how the government’s front line against terrorism has become a network of snitches at the end of their ropes, and FBI agents desperate to thwart a terrorist plot even if it means creating one.”
—Will Potter, Green is the New Red: An Insider’s Account of a Social Movement Under Siege

“A disturbing window into America’s war on terror. In story after story, Aaronson reveals in detail how the FBI and its informants are creating crime rather than solving it. This is an important piece of journalism.”
—Alexandra Natapoff, Snitching: Criminal Informants and the Erosion of American Justice

“Aaronson explains just how misguided and often deceptive FBI terrorism sting operations have become.”
—James J. Wedick, former FBI Supervisory Agent
