What would conservative writer Olson have opined about the September 11 terrorist attacks on the United States? We will never know, because she was on board the airliner that dove into the Pentagon that day. But one can guess: she might have decried President Clinton's failure to confront Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network or cited it as just another of the policy failures of the most corrupt President in American history. For in this, her last book, she drags fact after fact into the light of day and bitterly, even sneeringly, rails against the Clintons, their characters and lifestyles, their liberal friends and radical causes, their moral failures and shady activities. She is clearly preaching to the choir, but what an indictment she brings-especially regarding the Clinton pardons of Marc Rich and a pro-Communist terrorist and many, many others. Olson had particular distaste for former First Lady Hillary Clinton, finding elements of her Senate campaign unutterably corrupt; she didn't much like her personally either. This over-the-top approach will, for many listeners, dilute her message but, still, the book is hard to ignore. Reader Kimberly Schraf proceeds with a measured cadence somewhat distant from the words, and that is probably the best approach to listening to an angry tract such as this. Libraries with a modern political history collection will find this work flying off the shelf, at least until the Clintons pass from the American scene.

About the Author
Former federal prosecutor Barbara Olson served as the Chief Investigative Counsel to the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, where she spearheaded the investigation of the Clinton administration's travel office firings and eventually uncovered the explosive "filegate" scandal. She also served as the Principal Assistant General Counsel and Solicitor to the House.
Barbara Olson was killed on September 11, 2001, when the airplane she had just boarded for Los Angeles was hijacked by terrorists and crashed into the Pentagon. Though invariably charming and gracious, Barbara was both passionate and courageous. She held strong opinions, and nobody who was in the same room with her ever had any doubt about what she believed. She did not apologize for what she thought or said, and she always spoke her mind articulately and clearly. Barbara Olson was a champion of freedom. And she was a champion of the rule of law--of the need to maintain a free and civil society by means of a well-defined body of law that protects the individual from government tyranny. All of us at Regnery Publishing are deeply saddened by the loss of our author and friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband, Solicitor General Ted Olson, and the thousands of other relatives and friends who have lost their loved ones in the terrorist attacks on our country. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One of the crimes that have been alleged against them is murder. I am referring here to the last sentence of the short biography of the author Ms Olson, on the back cover of the book. It is headed "BARBARA OLSON 1955-2001." The last sentence reads: "Just two days before this book was originally printed, Barbara Olsen was killed in the hijacked airplane that was flown into the Pentagon during the September 11 terrorist attack on America.
I refer readers firstly to "hijacked airplane flown into the Pentagon". I now refer readers to a book written by Dean Hartwell "Planes without Passengers. The Faked Hijackings of 9/11 2ND EDITION" It looks at all of the ALLEGED downing of aircraft occurring on that day, including American 77, which is the one that is said to have crashed into the Pentagon. What the book says about that aircraft is that it was "traveling on a different trajectory at a higher speed and did not hit the Pentagon". That is a direct quote. But it is not the full story. On page 9 he says that Flight 77 was not scheduled to fly on that day. The author gets his information from the Bureau of Transport Statistics. His conclusion about that, and other flights, if the flight was not scheduled to fly on that day, then the aircraft must have had no passengers. He says on page 23 that if there was a Flight 77, then it must have a "decoy", and "a plane without passengers."
Significantly, he refers to what the 9/11 Commission had to say about it." "In fact the 9/11 Commission in their report acknowledges that no air traffic controllers identified Flight 77 as a hijacked plane while it was airborne." It is significant because that Commission was set up by President Bush to find that Al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden were the perpetrators of the crimes committed on that day.
Now back to the Clintons, I refer to Part Three of the Clinton Trilogy, which was written by Victor Thorn. The Heading on the front cover: "HILLARY" in bold print and then, almost as an afterthought, underneath (AND BILL). Underneath that is THE MURDER VOLUME. (The other two books in the trilogy relate to their alleged involvement with Sex and Drugs.)
On the back cover of the book is a summary headed "Is the 'Clinton Body Count' for Real?" It then refers to mystery deaths of people "who knew too much".
Put those three points together: What Ms Olson revealed. The mystery of Flight 77. What happened to people who "knew too much".
Was Ms Olsen's death one of those "mystery" ones? Do the Clintons have a case to answer?
it home with her, with my permission. Because of the approaching presidential election, i thought it would be prudent of me to better acquaint
myself with the candidates, therefore i purchased another book, from my favorite, Amazon. I found some words and sentences, such as ....
" The C......s are a terminally unethical and vulgar couple and they have betrayed everyone who has ever believed in them..." quite interesting.
