From the Inside Flap
Could the next September 11 be nuclear? This is no theory, says Congressman Curt Weldon, in his shocking new book Countdown to Terror. It is a fact as real as the arrest of Muslim terrorists who planned to crash a plane into the Seabrook nuclear power plant in New Hampshire in 2004. Whats even more stunning, Congressman Weldon tried to warn American intelligence about the attackbut no one in Americas intelligence community would listen. How did Congressman Weldon know about it? Because of a secret source, an intelligence contact code-named Ali who has been a treasure trove of reliable intelligenceintelligence that, despite Congressman Weldons strenuous efforts, has been routinely ignored by the CIA and the rest of Americas intelligence services. But in Countdown to Terror, Congressman Weldon lets you know what the CIA doesnt want to know. Youll learn, straight from Alis actual reports: · Why Iran will decide the next terror strike on America · How a major planned terror strike was called off because the terrorists thought it would help President Bush politically · Why Iran, not al Qaeda, is the command post of radical Islamic terror · Who is undercutting American efforts to create a peaceful, stable Iraq · Why Iran is like the Soviet Union in the 1980s: extremely dangerous, the iron glove behind all our enemiesyet on the verge of internal collapse · The Iranian nuclear program: red-hot and more advanced than you think Congressman Weldons sharing of vital intelligence with you, the reading public, is unprecedented. But it is necessary so that the American people can be informed and pressure our government to do what needs to be done to protect our country, fix our still broken intelligence services, and win the war on terrorism. Countdown to Terror is a frightening bookbut it is all true. And if we act now, we can avoid its grimmest scenarios.
