9/11 ushered in an era of permanent war, rule-by-fear, illegal torture, and indefinite detentionsall justified by an attack that the Bush Administration claimed was a complete surprise. But as publisher of the critical Bush biography Fortunate Son, Sander Hicks had a unique position from which to cast a hard look at the official story around the attacks. With original research and interviews, his new book, The Big Wedding: 9/11, the Whistle-Blowers and the Cover-Up, provides a new level of proof that Bushs advisors had detailed foreknowledge of 9/11. The Big Wedding examines the CIAs controlling, client relationship with Pakistani intelligence, who had close, documented, under-reported links to the 9/11 terrorists. In Big Wedding, Hicks hits the road and in Florida, finds FBI whistle-blower Randy Glass, who documents how the FBI was warned by Pakistani intelligence three years before the attacks.
With the cumulative power of his original research into the neo-cons, the Bush family, the CIA, and Muslim Brotherhood, Hicks concludes: its impossible that the White House did not have detailed foreknowledge of 9/11. The ascendant neo-conservative agenda, under the leadership of Vice President Cheney and Secretary Rumsfeld, used Arab rage to solidify the U.S. stranglehold on the planet.
Hicks hands in startling revelations from government whistleblowers and top researchers, including lauded FBI Whistleblower Coleen Rowley, ATF Agent Steve Barborini, Mohamed Atta expert Daniel Hopsicker, CIA asset Brad Ayers, and Naval intelligence veteran (and colorful con-man) Delmart Vreeland.
"Imagine Henry Rollins meets the young Bob Woodwarda clean-cut, hard-as-nails punk with the reporting chops to take on an empire. Hicks is out to do nothing less than expose the planet's most insidious nexus: the jihadists, bankers, mercenaries, drug dealers, and so-called leaders who are currently pantomiming their way through a charade they've dubbed the war on terror."
