Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures has optioned film rights to Richard Clarke's nonfiction best seller Against All Enemies: Inside America's War on Terror for producer John Calley. "Enemies" -- which was published last month by the Free Press, a subsidiary of Simon & Schuster -- has been at the center of the current national debate about America's readiness to respond to terrorist threats before Sept. 11.

Clarke, who was a counterterrorism expert in the administrations of both Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, appeared before the 9/11 Commission the week the book was published. During that hearing, he testified that the Bush White House didn't consider terrorism "an urgent issue" in the months before the al-Qaida attacks on New York and Washington.
