⇲ Read any ⑃ Shock and Alarm: What it was really like at the U.S. Embassy in Iraq ⨰ Kindle Ebook By Hugh Iwanicki ⫚ Shock and Alarm What it was really like at the US Embassy in Iraq is a riveting behind the scenes expos of daily life at the Baghdad Diplomatic Compound in 2009, providing an insightful look at the culture clash taking place between the Islamic world and the West This is Hugh Iwanicki s personal story of the eleven months he served as a performance auditor for the Office of the Inspector General at the Embassy His journal of unforgettable experiences juxtapose the mundane with the bizarre, moving from discussions of constitutional law with Sharia attorneys to several near death experiences, as well as the strange bedfellow s tale of a regional embassy housed in a Shiite owned Temporary Marriage Honeymoon Hotel For comic relief, there are also the misadventures of the Blackwater contractors, Marines, diplomats, and plumbers who inhabited the Green Zone and made the best of the Coalition embassy parties, where the women, though far outnumbered, were in full control of the men And then there s the story of how the Embassy got an unlimited supply of free beer, thanks to a Sharia law against alcohol Iwanicki s startling autobiographical account brings to light the human, the brutal, and the bewildering sides of life among the Iraqis, Jordanians, and Kuwaitis, as well as the mind bending ironies and paradoxes encountered by the jumbled crew that lived within the confines known as the US Embassy in Iraq Shock and Alarm pulls back the curtain on the bunker mentality of the prison, where a grinding monotony was pierced by near daily rocket attacks and week long sand storms It also reflects on Iwanicki s first hand experiences of the Middle East s Islamic culture, framing disturbing questions about America s engagement in Iraq and with Islam itself While readers of all backgrounds and interests will enjoy the fish out of water humor of Iwanicki s early adventures in Iraq, little will prepare them for his climactic awakening to a horror hiding in plain sight Iwanicki s story ends with a silent scream, as he discovers that the menace he thought he had escaped by returning to the US was awaiting him at home Shock and Alarm is an urgent and heartfelt memoir that provides a much needed wake up call to all Americans.Dave Bailey worked for many years at IBM, leaving in 1992 to start a non profit called Education Transfer that organized events for schools similar to those he had arranged as a volunteer By 2001 he was serving several schools on Long Island schools with families that were devastated by the 9 11 attack Bailey felt a compelling need to understand the ideology behind the attack and, after retiring in 2010, he devotes his time to helping others comprehend the forces within Islam that threaten the West.
