The War on Truth: 9/11, Disinformation, and the Anatomy of Terrorism

Front Cover
Olive Branch Press, 2005 - History - 459 pages
Deconstructing the findings of the 9/11 Commission and the Joint Congressional Inquiry, he exposes disturbing liaisons between American, British, and European intelligence services and al-Qaeda operatives in the Balkans, Caucasus, North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, and Asia-Pacific - liaisons linked not only to 9/11, but also to prior terrorist attacks, including the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the 1998 US embassy bombings. Against this background, Ahmed accomplishes the most detailed and wide-ranging study to date of the powerful vested interests and intrigues responsible for the collapse of US national security in the years and months leading up to 9/11. Government documents, whistleblower testimony, and the findings of official inquiries are scrutinized to trace the innermost workings of the intelligence community, revealing precisely which government policies and operations facilitated the 9/11 intelligence failure, and pinpointing the specific agencies, individuals, and decisions that weakened the US air defense system. Finally, Ahmed unlocks the underlying geostrategy of the War on Terror - the culmination of a decades-long plan to secure and expand an increasingly unstable system.
