That Halliburton made a fortune off Iraq ..then youve accepted some of the most prevalent myths about the War on Terrormyths that are demonstrably untrue. If truth is the first casualty of war, urban legends are the first product of Americas War on Terror. In Disinformation, investigative reporter and terrorism expert Richard Miniter punctures twenty-two myths about terrorism, al Qaeda, and the war in Iraq. He has sifted the written record, met with countless high-level sources, and traveled the globe, from Sudan to the Philippines, Egypt to Iraq, to track down and refute some of the most widely believedand often perniciouslegends of the War on Terror. Provocative but irrefutable, with startling new reporting, Miniter reveals:
Why racial profiling of terrorists wont work
Why Iraq is not "another Vietnam"
Why Osama bin Laden is not a massively wealthy criminal mastermind, was not funded or trained by the CIA, and is not on dialysis
Why poverty doesnt cause terrorism Miniter gives you all the evidence to shoot down disinformation and refute those who mindlessly repeat it. If you want the truth about the War on Terror, start here.
