saco-indonesia.com, Pelaku pembunuhan terhadap Desi Hayatun Nupus yang berusia (21) tahun yang juga sedang hamil delapan bulan dan penganiaya ibunya, Fatoyah yang berusia (45) tahun diduga telah dilakukan oleh orang dekat korban. Pasalnya, warga juga sempat melakukan pengejaran terhadap terduga pelaku.

"Seperti orang ketakutan kemudian dia berlari," kata saksi Kasdi di lokasi, Minggu (26/01) kemarin malam.

Kasdi telah meyakini bahwa yang ia lihat itu merupakan E, yang tak lain juga merupakan suami dari Desi. E berlari kemudian naik mobil minibus. Tak hanya E saja , Kasdi juga melihat dua orang lain yang bersamaan dengan menggunakan dua sepeda motor. Meski demikian, warga sekitar juga enggan berspekulasi.

"Saya juga sempat mengejar, tapi tidak sampai dapat. Karena mereka bawa mobil dan sepeda motor, sedangkan saya hanya berlari," ujarnya.

Seperti yang telah diberitakan sebelumnya, Desi dan Ibunya telah ditemukan bersimbah darah di rumahnya Kampung Rawabebek RT 10 RW 11, Kelurahan Kota Baru, Kecamatan Bekasi Barat, Kota Bekasi, Minggu (26/01) malam.

Desi tewas mengenaskan dengan luka parah akibat senjata tajam di leher, mulut, telinga. Sedangkan, ibunya kritis karena luka tikam di bagian pinggang. Rumah korban pun juga dipenuhi bercak darah korban. Hingga berita ditulis belum ada keterangan resmi dari polisi.

WANITA HAMIL TUA DIBUNUH OLEH ORANG DEKAT

Harga Besi Beton telah diperkirakan akan terus melonjak naik pada 2014. Selama tiga bulan terakhir di 2013, Besi Beton terus akan mengalami kenaikan sebesar 20 persen, disebabkan melemahnya mata uang rupiah terhadap dolar AS, serta kenaikan harga bahan bakar minyak (BBM).

 Pengawas Lapangan Toko Mega Baja Bandarlampung, Jalan Hajimena No.54,  Tri (35) juga mengatakan, dampak dari melemahnya mata uang rupiah dan naiknya BBM sangat berpengaruh terhadap suplai Besi Beton ke Lampung.

’’Semua Besi Beton akan mengalami kenaikan dari ukuran 6, 8, 10, 12, 19, 22, dan 35, rata - rata kenaikan telah mencapai Rp2 ribu dalam sebulan. Kenaikan inipun akan terus berlanjut di tahun ini,’’ ucap Tri di sela-sela kesibukannya mengawasi karyawannya saat bekerja.

Menurutnya, untuk ukuran besi 6 yang semula harganya Rp22 ribu/batang, kini telah menjadi Rp24 ribu/batang. Ukuran besi 8, harga semula Rp36ribu/batang naik menjadi Rp38/batang. Ukuran besi 10, harga semula Rp60 ribu/batang naik Rp62 ribu/batang. Ukuran besi 12 harga semula Rp78 ribu/batang menjadi Rp80 ribu/batang, dan sebagainya. Kata Tri, harga besi akan terus naik seiring belum membaiknya pertumbuhan ekonomi di Indonesia.

’’Pemasokan Besi Beton pengirimannya mengunakan transportrasi jelas jika biaya transportasi naik harga juga akan ikut naik, terlebih kendala ekonomi yang kurang membaik, sehingga dapat menjadikan problematika yang berdampak buruk bagi sektor industri. Dampaknya pun juga akan berpengaruh pada perusahaan ritel,’’ terangnya.
    
Namun, di Bandarlampung sendiri, kata dia, tingkat permintaan untuk Besi Beton terbilang cukup tinggi, karena pesatnya pembangunan Kota Bandarlampung sehingga membuat permintan akan Besi Beton terus meningkat.

 Maka dari itu, dalam sebulan perusahaan ritel penyuplai Besi Beton Toko Mega Baja mampu meraup keuntungan Rp2 miliar dalam sebulan.

Terlebih dari itu, selain menjual Besi Beton Toko Mega Baja juga menjual  Baja Ringan. Ternyata tren baja ringan juga mengikuti peningkatan dalam pertumbuhan pembangunan, Namun peningkatan lebih cenderung ke Besi Beton. Untuk Besi Beton menguasai pendistribusain sebanyak 70 persen sedangkan untuk baja ringan hanya 30 persen.  

’’Untuk pembangunan besi beton masih menjadi suatu perioritas, tak heran jika peningkatannya lebih tinggi dari pada baja ringan,’’ tuntasnya.

 

KURS RUPIAH MELEMAH PENGARUHI HARGA BESI BETON

GEMASHAFAMARWA, JAKARTA — Momentum tahun baru ini juga berselaras dengan masa liburan sekolah. Tak heran, kata dia, peminat berumrah dalam satu rombongan keluarga juga meningkat. Walau tak mengantungi data detail berapa komposisi jumlah jamaah keluarga maupun perorangan namun ia sangat yakin momentum tahun baru dan liburan sekolah memberikan kontribusi yang besar terhadap peningkatan jamaah umrah pada musim ini.

Fuad Hasan Masyur, ketua umum Asosiasi Muslim Penyelenggara Haji dan Umroh Republik Indonesia (AMPHURI) meneropong dengan penuh keyakinan, hingga tahun depan animo masyarakat untuk pergi umrah akan bisa meningkat pesat. Ia memproyeksi akan ada peningkatan sekitar 30 persen untuk jamaah umrah pada 2014. ”Peningkatan itu tentunya sudah mulai terlihat mulai Desember ini,” kata dia, baru-baru ini.

Pendapat serupa juga diaminkan oleh Baluki Ahmad, ketua umum Himpunan Penyelenggara Umroh dan Haji (Himpuh). Ia yakin jumlah jamaah yang hendak umrah pada tahun ini akan lebih banyak dibandingkan dengan tahun lalu. ”Saya memperkirakan pada 2014 ini akan bisa mencapai 800 ribu jamaah,” katanya

Peningkatan jamaah umrah ini, kata Baluki, memang sudah mulai tampak sejak Desember ini. Bulan Desember tahun ini merupakan awal dari musim umrah 2014. Hingga awal tahun depan, kata Baluki, para pengelola travel umrah sudah mengalami kebanjiran calon jamaah. Ia memprediksi peningkatan terbesar kemungkinan terjadi sekitar Juni atau saat memasuki masa liburan sekolah. ”Tak ketinggalan juga pada bulan Ramadhan, jamaah umrah akan lebih banyak lagi,” katanya.

Dengan adanya momentum tahun baru ini, Baluki dan Fuad meyakini para pengelola travel umrah tentunya sudah menyiapkan strategi memikat agar perayaan pergantian tahun menjadi lebih bermakna. ”Ini akan menjadi perayaan tahun baru yang memberi warna bagi kehidupan jamaah. Ini adalah pengalaman yang jarang didapat, tentunya,” kata Baluki menegaskan.

Direktur Eksekutif Fox Indonesia, Andi Zulkarnain Anwar alias Choel Mallarangeng, rupanya telah diberi 'kekuasaan' oleh mantan Menteri Pemuda dan Olahraga, Andi Alifian Mallarangeng. Sebab, sebelum proses lelang proyek P3SON Hambalang dilaksanakan, mantan Sekretaris Menpora, Wafid Muharam, harus menghadap dan meminta persetujuan Choel terlebih dulu.

Dalam surat dakwaan Andi Mallarangeng yang dibacakan oleh Jaksa Penuntut Umum pada Komisi Pemberantasan Korupsi, Irene Putri, Wafid telah melakukan pertemuan dengan Choel, mantan Kepala Biro Perencanaan sekaligus bekas Kepala Biro Keuangan dan Rumah Tangga serta Pejabat Pembuat Komitmen proyek P3SON Hambalang, Deddy Kusdinar, Manajer Pemasaran Divisi Konstruksi I PT Adhi Karya, Muhammad Arief Taufiqurrahman, dan Staf Khusus Menpora, Muhammad Fakhruddin. Dalam pertemuan itu, Choel telah menanyakan kesiapan PT Adhi Karya melaksanakan lelang proyek Hambalang.

"Dijawab oleh Arief kalau PT Adhi Karya sudah siap. Kemudian, Wafid bertanya kepada Choel apakah proyek P3SON Hambalang bisa dilelang, dan Choel mempersilakan," kata Jaksa Irene saat membacakan dakwaan Andi di Gedung Pengadilan Tindak Pidana Korupsi, Jakarta, kemarin.

Wafid tunduk dan telah melakukan hal itu karena Choel adalah adik Andi. Dia juga harus meminta persetujuan Choel lantaran merupakan titah Andi setelah dilantik menjadi menteri.

Sebab, beberapa hari setelah dilantik menjadi Menpora pada 21 Oktober 2009 lalu , Andi tiba-tiba membawa Choel ke Kemenpora dan memperkenalkannya kepada mantan Sekretaris Menpora, Wafid Muharam. Peristiwa itu telah terjadi ruang kerja Andi. Saat itu, lanjut dia, Andi mengatakan Choel akan banyak membantu urusan di Kemenpora, sehingga jika Wafid butuh konsultasi supaya segera menghubungi Choel.

"Padahal terdakwa telah mengetahui Choel bukanlah orang yang kompeten dan telah memiliki korelasi dengan program-program di Kemenpora," ujar Jaksa Irene.

BAHAN BERKUALITAS UNTUK KONVEKSI FASHION

“It was really nice to play with other women and not have this underlying tone of being at each other’s throats.”

ay 4, 2015 ‘Game of Thrones’ Q&A: Keisha Castle-Hughes on the Tao of the Sand Snakes

GREENWICH, Conn. — Mago is in the bedroom. You can go in.

The big man lies on a hospital bed with his bare feet scraping its bottom rail. His head is propped on a scarlet pillow, the left temple dented, the right side paralyzed. His dark hair is kept just long enough to conceal the scars.

The occasional sounds he makes are understood only by his wife, but he still has that punctuating left hand. In slow motion, the fingers curl and close. A thumbs-up greeting.

Hello, Mago.

This is Magomed Abdusalamov, 34, also known as the Russian Tyson, also known as Mago. He is a former heavyweight boxer who scored four knockouts and 14 technical knockouts in his first 18 professional fights. He preferred to stand between rounds. Sitting conveyed weakness.

But Mago lost his 19th fight, his big chance, at the packed Theater at Madison Square Garden in November 2013. His 19th decision, and his last.

Now here he is, in a small bedroom in a working-class neighborhood in Greenwich, in a modest house his family rents cheap from a devoted friend. The air-pressure machine for his mattress hums like an expectant crowd.

Today is like any other day, except for those days when he is hurried in crisis to the hospital. Every three hours during the night, his slight wife, Bakanay, 28, has risen to turn his 6-foot-3 body — 210 pounds of dead weight. It has to be done. Infections of the gaping bedsore above his tailbone have nearly killed him.

Then, with the help of a young caretaker, Baka has gotten two of their daughters off to elementary school and settled down the toddler. Yes, Mago and Baka are blessed with all girls, but they had also hoped for a son someday.

They feed Mago as they clean him; it’s easier that way. For breakfast, which comes with a side of crushed antiseizure pills, he likes oatmeal with a squirt of Hershey’s chocolate syrup. But even oatmeal must be puréed and fed to him by spoon.

He opens his mouth to indicate more, the way a baby does. But his paralysis has made everything a choking hazard. His water needs a stirring of powdered food thickener, and still he chokes — eh-eh-eh — as he tries to cough up what will not go down.

Mago used to drink only water. No alcohol. Not even soda. A sip of juice would be as far as he dared. Now even water betrays him.

With the caretaker’s help, Baka uses a washcloth and soap to clean his body and shampoo his hair. How handsome still, she has thought. Sometimes, in the night, she leaves the bedroom to watch old videos, just to hear again his voice in the fullness of life. She cries, wipes her eyes and returns, feigning happiness. Mago must never see her sad.

When Baka finishes, Mago is cleanshaven and fresh down to his trimmed and filed toenails. “I want him to look good,” she says.

Theirs was an arranged Muslim marriage in Makhachkala, in the Russian republic of Dagestan. He was 23, she was 18 and their future hinged on boxing. Sometimes they would shadowbox in love, her David to his Goliath. You are so strong, he would tell her.

His father once told him he could either be a bandit or an athlete, but if he chose banditry, “I will kill you.” This paternal advice, Mago later told The Ventura County Reporter, “made it a very easy decision for me.”

Mago won against mediocre competition, in Moscow and Hollywood, Fla., in Las Vegas and Johnstown, Pa. He was knocked down only once, and even then, it surprised more than hurt. He scored a technical knockout in the next round.

It all led up to this: the undercard at the Garden, Mike Perez vs. Magomed Abdusalamov, 10 rounds, on HBO. A win, he believed, would improve his chances of taking on the heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko, who sat in the crowd of 4,600 with his fiancée, the actress Hayden Panettiere, watching.

Wearing black-and-red trunks and a green mouth guard, Mago went to work. But in the first round, a hard forearm to his left cheek rocked him. At the bell, he returned to his corner, and this time, he sat down. “I think it’s broken,” he repeatedly said in Russian.

Maybe at that point, somebody — the referee, the ringside doctors, his handlers — should have stopped the fight, under a guiding principle: better one punch too early than one punch too late. But the bloody trade of blows continued into the seventh, eighth, ninth, a hand and orbital bone broken, his face transforming.

Meanwhile, in the family’s apartment in Miami, Baka forced herself to watch the broadcast. She could see it in his swollen eyes. Something was off.

After the final round, Perez raised his tattooed arms in victory, and Mago wandered off in a fog. He had taken 312 punches in about 40 minutes, for a purse of $40,000.

 

 

In the locker room, doctors sutured a cut above Mago’s left eye and tested his cognitive abilities. He did not do well. The ambulance that waits in expectation at every fight was not summoned by boxing officials.

Blood was pooling in Mago’s cranial cavity as he left the Garden. He vomited on the pavement while his handlers flagged a taxi to St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital. There, doctors induced a coma and removed part of his skull to drain fluids and ease the swelling.

Then came the stroke.

It is lunchtime now, and the aroma of puréed beef and potatoes lingers. So do the questions.

How will Mago and Baka pay the $2 million in medical bills they owe? What if their friend can no longer offer them this home? Will they win their lawsuits against the five ringside doctors, the referee, and a New York State boxing inspector? What about Mago’s future care?

Most of all: Is this it?

A napkin rests on Mago’s chest. As another spoonful of mush approaches, he opens his mouth, half-swallows, chokes, and coughs until it clears. Eh-eh-eh. Sometimes he turns bluish, but Baka never shows fear. Always happy for Mago.

Some days he is wheeled out for physical therapy or speech therapy. Today, two massage therapists come to knead his half-limp body like a pair of skilled corner men.

Soon, Mago will doze. Then his three daughters, ages 2, 6 and 9, will descend upon him to talk of their day. Not long ago, the oldest lugged his championship belt to school for a proud show-and-tell moment. Her classmates were amazed at the weight of it.

Then, tonight, there will be more puréed food and pulverized medication, more coughing, and more tender care from his wife, before sleep comes.

Goodbye, Mago.

He half-smiles, raises his one good hand, and forms a fist.

BEIJING (AP) — The head of Taiwan's Nationalists reaffirmed the party's support for eventual unification with the mainland when he met Monday with Chinese President Xi Jinping as part of continuing rapprochement between the former bitter enemies.

Nationalist Party Chairman Eric Chu, a likely presidential candidate next year, also affirmed Taiwan's desire to join the proposed Chinese-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank during the meeting in Beijing. China claims Taiwan as its own territory and doesn't want the island to join using a name that might imply it is an independent country.

Chu's comments during his meeting with Xi were carried live on Hong Kong-based broadcaster Phoenix Television.

The Nationalists were driven to Taiwan by Mao Zedong's Communists during the Chinese civil war in 1949, leading to decades of hostility between the sides. Chu, who took over as party leader in January, is the third Nationalist chairman to visit the mainland and the first since 2009.

Relations between the communist-ruled mainland and the self-governing democratic island of Taiwan began to warm in the 1990s, partly out of their common opposition to Taiwan's formal independence from China, a position advocated by the island's Democratic Progressive Party.

Despite increasingly close economic ties, the prospect of political unification has grown increasingly unpopular on Taiwan, especially with younger voters. Opposition to the Nationalists' pro-China policies was seen as a driver behind heavy local electoral defeats for the party last year that led to Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou resigning as party chairman.

Taiwan party leader affirms eventual reunion with China

WASHINGTON — During a training course on defending against knife attacks, a young Salt Lake City police officer asked a question: “How close can somebody get to me before I’m justified in using deadly force?”

Dennis Tueller, the instructor in that class more than three decades ago, decided to find out. In the fall of 1982, he performed a rudimentary series of tests and concluded that an armed attacker who bolted toward an officer could clear 21 feet in the time it took most officers to draw, aim and fire their weapon.

The next spring, Mr. Tueller published his findings in SWAT magazine and transformed police training in the United States. The “21-foot rule” became dogma. It has been taught in police academies around the country, accepted by courts and cited by officers to justify countless shootings, including recent episodes involving a homeless woodcarver in Seattle and a schizophrenic woman in San Francisco.

Now, amid the largest national debate over policing since the 1991 beating of Rodney King in Los Angeles, a small but vocal set of law enforcement officials are calling for a rethinking of the 21-foot rule and other axioms that have emphasized how to use force, not how to avoid it. Several big-city police departments are already re-examining when officers should chase people or draw their guns and when they should back away, wait or try to defuse the situation

WASHINGTON — The last three men to win the Republican nomination have been the prosperous son of a president (George W. Bush), a senator who could not recall how many homes his family owned (John McCain of Arizona; it was seven) and a private equity executive worth an estimated $200 million (Mitt Romney).

The candidates hoping to be the party’s nominee in 2016 are trying to create a very different set of associations. On Sunday, Ben Carson, a retired neurosurgeon, joined the presidential field.

Senator Marco Rubio of Florida praises his parents, a bartender and a Kmart stock clerk, as he urges audiences not to forget “the workers in our hotel kitchens, the landscaping crews in our neighborhoods, the late-night janitorial staff that clean our offices.”

Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, a preacher’s son, posts on Twitter about his ham-and-cheese sandwiches and boasts of his coupon-clipping frugality. His $1 Kohl’s sweater has become a campaign celebrity in its own right.

Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky laments the existence of “two Americas,” borrowing the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s phrase to describe economically and racially troubled communities like Ferguson, Mo., and Detroit.

“Some say, ‘But Democrats care more about the poor,’ ” Mr. Paul likes to say. “If that’s true, why is black unemployment still twice white unemployment? Why has household income declined by $3,500 over the past six years?”

We are in the midst of the Empathy Primary — the rhetorical battleground shaping the Republican presidential field of 2016.

Harmed by the perception that they favor the wealthy at the expense of middle-of-the-road Americans, the party’s contenders are each trying their hardest to get across what the elder George Bush once inelegantly told recession-battered voters in 1992: “Message: I care.”

Their ability to do so — less bluntly, more sincerely — could prove decisive in an election year when power, privilege and family connections will loom large for both parties.

Questions of understanding and compassion cost Republicans in the last election. Mr. Romney, who memorably dismissed the “47 percent” of Americans as freeloaders, lost to President Obama by 63 percentage points among voters who cast their ballots for the candidate who “cares about people like me,” according to exit polls.

And a Pew poll from February showed that people still believe Republicans are indifferent to working Americans: 54 percent said the Republican Party does not care about the middle class.

That taint of callousness explains why Senator Ted Cruz of Texas declared last week that Republicans “are and should be the party of the 47 percent” — and why another son of a president, Jeb Bush, has made economic opportunity the centerpiece of his message.

With his pedigree and considerable wealth — since he left the Florida governor’s office almost a decade ago he has earned millions of dollars sitting on corporate boards and advising banks — Mr. Bush probably has the most complicated task making the argument to voters that he understands their concerns.

On a visit last week to Puerto Rico, Mr. Bush sounded every bit the populist, railing against “elites” who have stifled economic growth and innovation. In the kind of economy he envisions leading, he said: “We wouldn’t have the middle being squeezed. People in poverty would have a chance to rise up. And the social strains that exist — because the haves and have-nots is the big debate in our country today — would subside.”

Who Is Running for President (and Who’s Not)?

Republicans’ emphasis on poorer and working-class Americans now represents a shift from the party’s longstanding focus on business owners and “job creators” as the drivers of economic opportunity.

This is intentional, Republican operatives said.

In the last presidential election, Republicans rushed to defend business owners against what they saw as hostility by Democrats to successful, wealthy entrepreneurs.

“Part of what you had was a reaction to the Democrats’ dehumanization of business owners: ‘Oh, you think you started your plumbing company? No you didn’t,’ ” said Grover Norquist, the conservative activist and president of Americans for Tax Reform.

But now, Mr. Norquist said, Republicans should move past that. “Focus on the people in the room who know someone who couldn’t get a job, or a promotion, or a raise because taxes are too high or regulations eat up companies’ time,” he said. “The rich guy can take care of himself.”

Democrats argue that the public will ultimately see through such an approach because Republican positions like opposing a minimum-wage increase and giving private banks a larger role in student loans would hurt working Americans.

“If Republican candidates are just repeating the same tired policies, I’m not sure that smiling while saying it is going to be enough,” said Guy Cecil, a Democratic strategist who is joining a “super PAC” working on behalf of Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Republicans have already attacked Mrs. Clinton over the wealth and power she and her husband have accumulated, caricaturing her as an out-of-touch multimillionaire who earns hundreds of thousands of dollars per speech and has not driven a car since 1996.

Mr. Walker hit this theme recently on Fox News, pointing to Mrs. Clinton’s lucrative book deals and her multiple residences. “This is not someone who is connected with everyday Americans,” he said. His own net worth, according to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, is less than a half-million dollars; Mr. Walker also owes tens of thousands of dollars on his credit cards.

Continue reading the main story

But showing off a cheap sweater or boasting of a bootstraps family background not only helps draw a contrast with Mrs. Clinton’s latter-day affluence, it is also an implicit argument against Mr. Bush.

Mr. Walker, who featured a 1998 Saturn with more than 100,000 miles on the odometer in a 2010 campaign ad during his first run for governor, likes to talk about flipping burgers at McDonald’s as a young person. His mother, he has said, grew up on a farm with no indoor plumbing until she was in high school.

Mr. Rubio, among the least wealthy members of the Senate, with an estimated net worth of around a half-million dollars, uses his working-class upbringing as evidence of the “exceptionalism” of America, “where even the son of a bartender and a maid can have the same dreams and the same future as those who come from power and privilege.”

Mr. Cruz alludes to his family’s dysfunction — his parents, he says, were heavy drinkers — and recounts his father’s tale of fleeing Cuba with $100 sewn into his underwear.

Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey notes that his father paid his way through college working nights at an ice cream plant.

But sometimes the attempts at projecting authenticity can seem forced. Mr. Christie recently found himself on the defensive after telling a New Hampshire audience, “I don’t consider myself a wealthy man.” Tax returns showed that he and his wife, a longtime Wall Street executive, earned nearly $700,000 in 2013.

The story of success against the odds is a political classic, even if it is one the Republican Party has not been able to tell for a long time. Ronald Reagan liked to say that while he had not been born on the wrong side of the tracks, he could always hear the whistle. Richard Nixon was fond of reminding voters how he was born in a house his father had built.

“Probably the idea that is most attractive to an average voter, and an idea that both Republicans and Democrats try to craft into their messages, is this idea that you can rise from nothing,” said Charles C. W. Cooke, a writer for National Review.

There is a certain delight Republicans take in turning that message to their advantage now.

“That’s what Obama did with Hillary,” Mr. Cooke said. “He acknowledged it openly: ‘This is ridiculous. Look at me, this one-term senator with dark skin and all of America’s unsolved racial problems, running against the wife of the last Democratic president.”

G.O.P. Hopefuls Now Aiming to Woo the Middle Class

WASHINGTON — The former deputy director of the C.I.A. asserts in a forthcoming book that Republicans, in their eagerness to politicize the killing of the American ambassador to Libya, repeatedly distorted the agency’s analysis of events. But he also argues that the C.I.A. should get out of the business of providing “talking points” for administration officials in national security events that quickly become partisan, as happened after the Benghazi attack in 2012.

The official, Michael J. Morell, dismisses the allegation that the United States military and C.I.A. officers “were ordered to stand down and not come to the rescue of their comrades,” and he says there is “no evidence” to support the charge that “there was a conspiracy between C.I.A. and the White House to spin the Benghazi story in a way that would protect the political interests of the president and Secretary Clinton,” referring to the secretary of state at the time, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

But he also concludes that the White House itself embellished some of the talking points provided by the Central Intelligence Agency and had blocked him from sending an internal study of agency conclusions to Congress.

“I finally did so without asking,” just before leaving government, he writes, and after the White House released internal emails to a committee investigating the State Department’s handling of the issue.

A lengthy congressional investigation remains underway, one that many Republicans hope to use against Mrs. Clinton in the 2016 election cycle.

In parts of the book, “The Great War of Our Time” (Twelve), Mr. Morell praises his C.I.A. colleagues for many successes in stopping terrorist attacks, but he is surprisingly critical of other C.I.A. failings — and those of the National Security Agency.

Soon after Mr. Morell retired in 2013 after 33 years in the agency, President Obama appointed him to a commission reviewing the actions of the National Security Agency after the disclosures of Edward J. Snowden, a former intelligence contractor who released classified documents about the government’s eavesdropping abilities. Mr. Morell writes that he was surprised by what he found.

“You would have thought that of all the government entities on the planet, the one least vulnerable to such grand theft would have been the N.S.A.,” he writes. “But it turned out that the N.S.A. had left itself vulnerable.”

He concludes that most Wall Street firms had better cybersecurity than the N.S.A. had when Mr. Snowden swept information from its systems in 2013. While he said he found himself “chagrined by how well the N.S.A. was doing” compared with the C.I.A. in stepping up its collection of data on intelligence targets, he also sensed that the N.S.A., which specializes in electronic spying, was operating without considering the implications of its methods.

“The N.S.A. had largely been collecting information because it could, not necessarily in all cases because it should,” he says.

The book is to be released next week.

Mr. Morell was a career analyst who rose through the ranks of the agency, and he ended up in the No. 2 post. He served as President George W. Bush’s personal intelligence briefer in the first months of his presidency — in those days, he could often be spotted at the Starbucks in Waco, Tex., catching up on his reading — and was with him in the schoolhouse in Florida on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, when the Bush presidency changed in an instant.

Mr. Morell twice took over as acting C.I.A. director, first when Leon E. Panetta was appointed secretary of defense and then when retired Gen. David H. Petraeus resigned over an extramarital affair with his biographer, a relationship that included his handing her classified notes of his time as America’s best-known military commander.

Mr. Morell says he first learned of the affair from Mr. Petraeus only the night before he resigned, and just as the Benghazi events were turning into a political firestorm. While praising Mr. Petraeus, who had told his deputy “I am very lucky” to run the C.I.A., Mr. Morell writes that “the organization did not feel the same way about him.” The former general “created the impression through the tone of his voice and his body language that he did not want people to disagree with him (which was not true in my own interaction with him),” he says.

But it is his account of the Benghazi attacks — and how the C.I.A. was drawn into the debate over whether the Obama White House deliberately distorted its account of the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens — that is bound to attract attention, at least partly because of its relevance to the coming presidential election. The initial assessments that the C.I.A. gave to the White House said demonstrations had preceded the attack. By the time analysts reversed their opinion, Susan E. Rice, now the national security adviser, had made a series of statements on Sunday talk shows describing the initial assessment. The controversy and other comments Ms. Rice made derailed Mr. Obama’s plan to appoint her as secretary of state.

The experience prompted Mr. Morell to write that the C.I.A. should stay out of the business of preparing talking points — especially on issues that are being seized upon for “political purposes.” He is critical of the State Department for not beefing up security in Libya for its diplomats, as the C.I.A., he said, did for its employees.

But he concludes that the assault in which the ambassador was killed took place “with little or no advance planning” and “was not well organized.” He says the attackers “did not appear to be looking for Americans to harm. They appeared intent on looting and conducting some vandalism,” setting fires that killed Mr. Stevens and a security official, Sean Smith.

Mr. Morell paints a picture of an agency that was struggling, largely unsuccessfully, to understand dynamics in the Middle East and North Africa when the Arab Spring broke out in late 2011 in Tunisia. The agency’s analysts failed to see the forces of revolution coming — and then failed again, he writes, when they told Mr. Obama that the uprisings would undercut Al Qaeda by showing there was a democratic pathway to change.

“There is no good explanation for our not being able to see the pressures growing to dangerous levels across the region,” he writes. The agency had again relied too heavily “on a handful of strong leaders in the countries of concern to help us understand what was going on in the Arab street,” he says, and those leaders themselves were clueless.

Moreover, an agency that has always overvalued secretly gathered intelligence and undervalued “open source” material “was not doing enough to mine the wealth of information available through social media,” he writes. “We thought and told policy makers that this outburst of popular revolt would damage Al Qaeda by undermining the group’s narrative,” he writes.

Instead, weak governments in Egypt, and the absence of governance from Libya to Yemen, were “a boon to Islamic extremists across both the Middle East and North Africa.”

Mr. Morell is gentle about most of the politicians he dealt with — he expresses admiration for both Mr. Bush and Mr. Obama, though he accuses former Vice President Dick Cheney of deliberately implying a connection between Al Qaeda and Iraq that the C.I.A. had concluded probably did not exist. But when it comes to the events leading up to the Bush administration’s decision to go to war in Iraq, he is critical of his own agency.

Mr. Morell concludes that the Bush White House did not have to twist intelligence on Saddam Hussein’s alleged effort to rekindle the country’s work on weapons of mass destruction.

“The view that hard-liners in the Bush administration forced the intelligence community into its position on W.M.D. is just flat wrong,” he writes. “No one pushed. The analysts were already there and they had been there for years, long before Bush came to office.”
