Material this provocative and well researched must not be ignored. --Scott Loughrey, Baltimore Sun
Chossudovsky's book is a "connect the dots" work that should be required reading for media-misled and history-starved Americans --Kellia Ramares, Online Journal
Chossudovsky has written an alarming book that ought to serve as a wakeup call for every citizen in the World. --Anthony Lafratta, Chapter-Indigo,
From the Author
"Millions of people have been misled regarding the causes and consequences of September 11.
When people across the US and around the World find out that Al Qaeda is not an outside enemy but a creation of US foreign policy and the CIA, the legitimacy of the bipartisan war agenda will tumble like a deck of cards."
Across the land, the image of an "outside enemy" is instilled in the consciousness of Americans. Al Qaeda is threatening America and the world. The repeal of democracy under the Patriot legislation is portrayed as a means to providing "domestic security" and upholding civil liberties.
The 9/11 Commission Report destroys the historical record of US covert support to international terrorism, while creating the illusion that America and "Western Civilization" are threatened. In turn, the various terrorist warnings and code orange alerts have created, across America, an atmosphere of fear and intimidation.

Top customer reviews
This book is deeply tarnished by the factors noted above. To its credit, the book does accurately depict CIA involvement in the creation of the enigmatic figure known to the world as Osama Bin Laden. And, like his colleagues at Global Research, Dr. Chossudovsky attributes much of the world's current woes to competition over naturual resources, such as petroleum and natural gas. No doubt, this explains some things. But it is equally certain that all is not explained by these factors. When Dr. Chossudovsky chose, due evidently to the previously mentioned harsh experience, to police out of his account the factors most dispositive of America's "War on Terrorism", he tragically compromised his effort. The writing is good. And the book is otherwise well done. But this calls to mind the story told about the man talking to Mary Todd Lincoln after the assassination of her husband at the Ford Theatre, which occured during the rendition of the play, "Our American Cousins":
"Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play?"
In short, the book is sanitized and compromised. We cannot therefore honestly recommend it to those who would understand this very important subject. While we can certainly under Dr. Chossudovsky's position on this, we cannot commend it.

Michel Chossudovsky presents the truth and describes well the forces and player behind global events.Read more
