The answer is here in investigative reporter Richard Miniter's stunning exposé that includes exclusive interviews with both of Clinton's National Security Advisors, Clinton's counterterrorism czar, his first Director of Central Intelligence, his Secretary of State, top CIA and FBI agents, lawmakers from both parties and foreign intelligence officials from France, Sudan, Egypt, and the United Arab Emirates, as well as on-the-scene coverage from Sudan, Egypt, and elsewhere.
In Losing bin Laden you'll learn:
1)The never-before-told story of the Saudi government attempt to assasinate bin Laden 2)Why Bill Clinton refused to meet with his first Director of Central Intelligence 3)Drawn from secret Sudanese intelligence files, the never-before-told story of bin Laden's role in shooting down America's Black Hawk helicopters in Mogadishu, Somalia--and how Clinton manipulated the news media to keep the worst off America's TV screens 4)How Clinton ignored intelligence and offers of cooperation against bin Laden from several Muslim countries 5)The 1993 World Trade Center attack--why Clinton refused to believe it had been bombed; why the CIA was kept out of the investigation; and how one of the FBI's most trusted informants was actually a double agent working for bin Laden 6)Why the CIA never funded bin Laden--despite the liberal myths 7)The untold story of a respected congressman who repeatedly warned Clinton officials about bin Laden in 1993--and why he was ignored 8)Revealed for the first time: how Clinton and a democratic senator stopped the CIA from hiring Arabic translators--while phone intercepts from bin Laden remained untranslated 9)How the Predator spy plane--which spotted bin Laden three times--was grounded by bureaucratic infighting 10)Plus much more, including appendices of secret documents and photos, as well as the established links between bin Laden and Saddam Hussein's Iraq
Losing bin Laden is a dramatic, page-turning read, a riveting account of a terror war that bin Laden openly declared, but that Clinton left largely unfought. With a pounding narrative, upclose characters, and detailed scenes, it takes you inside the Oval Office, the White House Situation Room, and some of the deadliest terrorist cells that America has ever faced. If Clinton had fought back, the attacks on September 11, 2001 might never have happened.
Losing bin Laden is a story--and one hell of a lesson--that the reader will never forget. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
