The Shin Bet (better known as the Shabak) is Israel’s secret service charged with overseeing the country’s war on terror. All six former agency heads agreed to share their insights and reflect publicly on their actions and decisions while in office. Living in the shadows, they had never spoken about their work in front of a camera before. The Gatekeepers offers an exclusive account of their successes and failures, and validates the reasons that each man individually—and the six as a group—came to reconsider their hard-line positions and advocate a conciliatory approach toward their enemies.
