In 1957, Kennedy "was named chief counsel of what became known as the Rackets Committee and made a name for himself by uncovering corrupt practices in the Teamsters' Union. In 1959 Kennedy left the committee to write The Enemy Within on his investigation" (ANB). "The point I want to make is this," Kennedy declares: "If we do not on a national scale attack organized criminals with weapons and techniques as effective as their own, they will destroy us" (page 265).
