From the Inside Flap
In Inside the Asylum, you'll discover:
* How the UN assists international terrorists. Babbin exposes the shocking links between the UN and terrorist organizations.
* The money trail from the UN to Saddam Hussein. Babbin rips the veil from the outrageous Oil-for-Food program-proving that the UN sold its moral legitimacy for oil, stuffed its own pockets at the expense of the Iraqi people, and undermined American pressure on Saddam Hussein: the UN's cash cow. The UN's Oil-for-Food program, according to Babbin, "provided Saddam Hussein with the means to bribe politicians, to deprive his people of needed food and medicine, and to literally steal billions of dollars. There is even emerging evidence that money from the program might have gone to support al-Qaeda."
The UN's raid on the American Treasury. Babbin provides a hair-raising glimpse into the UN bureaucracy, dominated by Third World staffers who consider the United States Treasury "the common heritage of mankind." Babbin starts at the top, exposing Kofi Annan, the UN secretary-general, as an anti-American moral relativist who misses no opportunity to arrogate power from the United States to the UN.
How the United Nations and the European Union are morally bankrupt-and open enemies of the United States. Babbin shows how France and the United Nations have cost American lives in Iraq by their perverse delaying of American action in the Iraq War. American troops are fighting and dying today because of a terrorist strategy Saddam Hussein developed while France and the United Nations delayed Operation Iraqi Freedom.
As Jed Babbin shows, the UN is more of an international criminal than a dispenser of legitimate international law. If America wants to retain its sovereignty and security, it's time to escape from the UN asylum and say goodbye to the false friends of Old Europe. "We owe no tribute to the UN and the EU," declares Babbin. "We should look after our own defense."
The United Nations building in Manhattan is an international enclave, no longer American territory. Inside the Asylum is a powerful argument that it's time to reclaim that land for America.

The UN is broken and can't be fixed. In "Inside the Asylum: Why the UN and Old Europe are Worse than You Think," Jed Babbin answers a critical question that bears directly on the 2004 election. George Bush has relied too much on the UN, and is defeated there again and again. Why? Why is NATO -- successful in the Cold War -- now more a political fraternity than a military alliance?
This book could just as easily have been called "The Decline and Fall of the West" because it shows how the Western -- i.e., NATO -- nations have split apart. No longer sharing basic values, the nations that banded together to win the Cold War now can't even agree on what terrorism is. And some of them, notably France (which Babbin labels "our enemy"), choose the UN as their favorite mechanism for thwarting American policy.
But this isn't a polemic. Babbin does't say we should stomp out of the UN or NATO. He lays out carefully how we can -- and are --laying the foundation of a new global forum that can replace NATO, and which won't suffer the same paralysis, because it won't include the terrorists, dictators, and weasels that now prevent the UN from doing what its founders meant it to do.
In this presidential election, there is a lot of gasbag debate about failed diplomacy. This book should be read by every voter before the election. It proves why we can't rely on the UN for anything, and shows how American leadership succeeds without the UN better than it ever can within it.
The UN's treatment of Israel has not lived up to the founding spirit that affirmed the equal treatment of member states. There are many others ways in which Israel has been singled out for special treatment at the UN, making it a pariah state. Over the years, nearly every UN body, regardless of its main subject of concern, has been pressed by Arab countries to adopt a special resolution, procedure, or agenda item condemning Israel for its treatment of Palestinians, holding Israel to a different standard than all other countries.
Inside the Asylum by Jed Babbin is a must have. He has documented the how the UN help international terrorist organizations. Inside the Asylum is the reference text that documents the UN is corrupt, scandalous and a threat to our American Policy.
