The New York Times bestselling author of Shadow Warriors investigates the tragedy of Benghazi to answer the questions: what really happened—and why?
We know the Obama administration’s story, of a demonstration caused by an Internet movie that went out of control. But what actually did happen in Benghazi on the night of September 11, 2012?
Dark Forces is the story of clandestine arms deliveries by the United States and its allies to Libya that wound up in the hands of Islamist guerrillas. It’s a story of a romantic diplomat, in love with the Middle East and with a mystical version of Islam. It’s a story of bald-faced lies, heroic acts, and the deepest corruption.
But Dark Forces is not only a retelling of events. It puts those events into the larger context of Obama administration policy toward the Middle East. It will examine the administration’s record of systematically supporting Muslim Brotherhood and extremist groups in their efforts to overthrow pro-U.S. autocrats in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya.
It shows how President Obama’s obsessive outreach to the leadership of the Islamic Republic of Iran led the Iranian regime to dismiss him as a weak, ineffective leader who would not fight back. And it shows why and how this deadly combination cost the lives of four Americans on Sept. 11, 2012.
The last thing Hillary Clinton wants you to read is the truth about the infamous YouTube video she claimed sparked the Benghazi attacks. That’s why Cindy Lee Garcia—the deceived actress from the video—is Hillary's worst nightmare. She woke up the day after the Benghazi attacks to see her face all over national television, with Hillary blaming her for the deaths of four Americans.
New York Times best-selling author Kenneth R. Timmerman digs deep into the web of deception surrounding the “hateful” video, with stunning new documents, emails, and interviews with many of the participants.
This is the story of a deception that went way beyond a YouTube video to encompass Hillary Clinton’s diabolical vision for America under Islamic law.
"With so many amateur intelligence experts clouding the public dialogue, it is a pleasure to read the work of an author of real professionalism. Timmerman adds texture and clarity to the gross failures of our intelligence establishment, and new visibility to the role of Iran in the Islamist war against America. "
– John F. Lehman , 9/11 Commission member and former Secretary of the Navy
"I came to love Ken Timmerman's book, Countdown to Crisis. He tells us the insurgency is all in Iran. They start every meeting with "Death to America, death to Israel," and everyday they try and make both things happen. From Beirut to the Khobar Towers, and now in Iraq, they have been killing our people. I wonder how much longer we will take it and when we will prove UBL is in their country.
–Brian Kilmeade, FoxNews
"Mr. Timmerman marshals an impressive amount of evidence suggesting Iran may have known about the [9/11] attacks and has given sanctuary to senior al Qaeda officials who were involved in planning them. Perhaps most disturbing of all is the information he presents suggesting that the CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies have systematically tried to whitewash credible evidence from Iranian defectors linking Tehran and al Qaeda before and after September 11."
– Lead editorial, Washington Times
"Utilizing contacts with dozens of Iranian defectors and officials, previously classified documents, and high-level sources throughout the government and intelligence community, The New York Times best-selling author pulls the Persian rug out from the Iranian clerics who have been mobilizing to kill during four U.S. presidential administrations. Readers alarmed by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's recent call for the annihilation of Israel will take no comfort in Timmerman's electrifying book."
– Indianpolis Star
"There are villains enough to go around. Vacillating presidents. A CIA that dismisses any intelligence that does not square with its analytical model for Iran. Cold, greedy Western powers who never met a mullah they couldn't do business with. There are cover-ups and blunders galore. But it is the conclusion reached by this well-written, thoroughly documented book with 50 pages of supporting material that will put a chill on all those cheery news reports about democracy in action in Iran. There is something bad coming our way."
–James Srodes, author of "Allen Dulles, Master of Spies" and other biographies.
Best-selling author Kenneth R. Timmerman has spent his career investigating the dark side of national security.
Over the past three decades he has interviewed dissidents behind the Iron Curtain, covered numerous Middle East wars, interviewed suicide bombers, debriefed defectors from Iranian intelligence organizatons, and covered the plight of Christians persecuted for their faith.
His 2014 Benghazi book, Dark Forces: the Truth About What Happened in Benghazi, rips apart the spin and the lies surrounding the Sept.
–Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk radio host
Some have called it the CIA’s greatest covert operation of all time.
It is an intelligence war conducted behind the scenes, aimed at confusing, misleading, and ultimately defeating the enemy. The goal is nothing less than toppling the regime in power. A network of agents has been planted at key crossroads of power, stealing secrets, planting disinformation, and cooking intelligence. The plan involves sophisticated political sabotage operations that bring in opposition forces who can challenge the regime openly, in a way the CIA cannot. The scope is breathtaking.
Who is the target of this vast, sophisticated CIA operation? Not the mullahs in Tehran or North Korea’s power-mad Kim Jong Il; the target is America’s president, George W. Bush.
Drawing on exclusive information from senior government officials, intelligence operatives, and many others, investigative reporter Kenneth Timmerman provides the full, untold story of the sabotage that occurs behind the scenes at key government agencies like the CIA and State Department–and the profound effect it has on America’s ability to confront its most dangerous enemies. In Shadow Warriors, Timmerman brings to light the vast underground working to undercut our nation’s efforts to win the war on terror–revealing the when, where, how, and who for the first time. He also exposes the Democratic politicians who have sold out America’s national security for political gain.
In Shadow Warriors you’ll learn:
•How the CIA and State Department sabotaged the administration’s Iraq war plans from the start–sparking the insurgency in the process
•How a high-level State Department official gathered aides after Bush’s reelection to insist they owed no allegiance to the president or his policies
•How pre-war intelligence on Iraq was cooked–not by the Bush administration, but by its opponents
•How and why the shadow warriors have leaked details of virtually every covert U.S. intelligence tool used in the war on terror
•How the leaks have devastated our efforts to fight terrorism–such as when a key U.S. ally rebuffed the CIA director’s request for assistance by saying, “You Americans can’t keep secrets”
•Why U.S. intelligence refused to examine important documents detailing the secret Iraqi networks that became the heart of the insurgency
•How newly discovered Iraqi government documents reveal the extent of Saddam Hussein’s ties to international terrorists and the truth about his WMD arsenal
Shadow Warriors shows that George W. Bush never got the first rule of Washington: People are policy. He allowed his political enemies to run roughshod over his administration. This insider’s look at secret White House meetings, political backstabbing, and war-room summits is an eye-opening account of the mind-set that is crippling our effectiveness in Iraq and around the world.
Most Americans will be stunned to discover the depth and extent of anti-Semitic hatred in today’s Middle East and Europe, and that many Muslim leaders are not just encouraging it, but spending a great deal of money to spread the lies that spawned the terrorists responsible for the September 11 attack on America. In Preachers of Hate, bestselling author Kenneth R. Timmerman (who is not Jewish) contends that, besides Islam itself, the core unifying force in the Muslim world is a virulent strain of anti-Semitism that postulates the existence of a Jewish conspiracy to take over the world. From the pulpits of fiery Muslim clerics to the Arab street, and to the highest reaches of government and state-sponsored media, there is a belief that this thousand-year-old conspiracy has already taken hold in America and is now, especially after the war in Iraq, about to do the same in the Middle East and beyond. It is seen as no less than Muslims’ historical destiny to prevent such a takeover, and to do so by any means possible. To misunderstand the ferocity of that belief is to vastly underestimate the resolve of many Muslims to repel America, Israel, and all things Western.
Timmerman explores the roots of this hatred, examining its history, the religious sources upon which it draws, and how it is being transmitted to young people growing up in Arab societies by their leaders, their teachers, and their mosques. He documents how U.S. and European Union money has been used to finance hatred in Palestinian schools. He exposes the double-talk of Arab leaders and their supporters in the West. As it so often was throughout history, this new strain of Jew hatred is really about much more than Jews. They get attacked first, when the enemies of America can’t attack Americans. However, what begins with the Jews never ends with the Jews.
“Is there a conspiracy between America and the Jews?” asks Timmerman. “Indeed there is: A common heritage, a dedication to improving the human condition through compassion and tolerance of differences—a conspiracy of freedom. And that is why they hate us.” As with the Jews throughout history, America has been “unfairly successful.” As have the Jews, Americans have “profited” from the misery and poverty of others. If you hate Jews, you must also hate America. Such is the simple logic of the anti-Semite. Such, increasingly, is the logic of the Middle East. It is a message that is reinforced day in and day out by the official government-sanctioned Arab media, from the streets of Egypt, London, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Paris, and Gaza, and in the mosques where impassioned clerics quote verbatim texts like the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, a pillar of anti-Semitic hatred that originated in czarist Russia.
As America reasserts her role in the Middle East and attempts to bring peace between Jews and Arabs, Preachers of Hate is an essential book that reframes a very complicated issue as a matter of life and death.
Can we trust France? Apparently not. After more than 200 years of shared history and interests, the U.S.-France marriage looks as if it's ending in an acrimonious divorce. Here is the shocking insider account.
In the wake of French behavior at the United Nations, where Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin systematically undermined the efforts of Secretary of State Colin Powell to convince the Security Council to authorize force against Iraq, Americans have at best come to suspect our ally of double dealing, and at worst come to view them as the enemy. Almost daily over the past year, new stories have emerged of how the government of French President Jacques Chirac has sought to undermine the U.S. war on terror, publicly sniping at America and inciting other countries to do the same. What's wrong with France? What's behind their recent perfidy? According to bestselling author Kenneth R. Timmerman, the American public doesn't know half the story. After they read The French Betrayal of America, American anger at France will turn to outrage.
Timmerman, who worked as a journalist in France for eighteen years and knows the players on both sides, lifts the veil of Jacques Chirac's scandalous love affair with Saddam Hussein, beginning in 1975, when he took him on a tour of top-secret French nuclear facilities. The French attitude toward the dictator, which seemed to baffle American politicians, was in fact entirely predictable. Put bluntly, it was all about money, oil, and guns. Chirac needed Saddam's oil and Saddam's money, and Saddam needed French weapons and French nuclear technology.
Despite this, the relationship between France and America was not only amicable but at times very mutually beneficial. That was until the most recent war on Iraq, where France turned the tables, engaging in dirty diplomacy and helping to sway other European countries to their side. French war coverage was not merely one-sided: It was viciously inaccurate, skewed, and openly anti-American. Timmerman also presents incredible new evidence of France's duplicity, including the fact that the French stood to gain $100 billion from secret oil contracts they had concluded with Saddam Hussein.
The French Betrayal of America raises questions of whether the nuclear cooperation agreements still in force with the French today should be canceled in light of France's behavior. Our security interests no longer converge, and our economic systems increasingly appear to be at loggerheads. The war in Iraq harshly exposed French treachery and their desire to do business with the worst of international tyrants, putting their economy, their international standing, and their relationship with a 200-year-old friend in severe jeopardy.
Israeli intelligence picks up the departure of a mysterious cargo ship from Iran, while half-way across the world, a Muslim-American girl is found dead in suburban Maryland.
The two events appeared to be worlds apart. But they were not.
Major Danny Wilkens, the U.S. government’s top Iran analyst, becomes convinced that the cargo ship is part of an Iranian plot to kill millions of Americans. But incompetent bureaucrats and a broken CIA force him to go outside the system, where he puts his career and even his marriage on the line in order to stop its relentless trajectory toward America.
FBI Special Agent Michael Brannigan is perplexed by the “honor killing” of a Muslim girl in suburban Maryland. But it’s only when his investigation is shut down by G-girl Joanna Greary that he discovers a sordid underworld of steamy sex, corrupt government officials, and local Muslim leaders who have exploited America’s loose immigration laws for terror.
In this fast-paced Washington novel of spies, faith, betrayal, and lust, New York Times best-selling author Kenneth R. Timmerman tells a story so chilling that it had to be kept out of the newspapers.
• Is there really a spy for the terrorists who has access to the highest reaches of the United States government, including the White House?
• Have our intelligence agencies become so bureaucratic and corrupt they can no longer act when a clear and present danger appears?
• Is Iran’s master-terrorist at work today, probing our weaknesses?
• Is the American Muslim community giving shelter to deadly enemies?
Timmerman takes us from underground hide-outs in Iran to beach-side bars in the British Virgin Islands, from the port of Maracaibo to a shoot-out in Dubai. He brings us smooth Mossad operators, CIA bumblers and a Persian beauty named Aryana, who uses a computer company in California as a front for clandestine operations inside Iran.
As the Iranians get ever closer to our shores, readers are in for a surprising climax that may have many of them down on their knees.
In 2008, Ken Timmerman warned the U.S. government and the American public that Christians were “facing extinction” in northern Iraq. In the summer of 2017, he was back on the ground, debriefing the most recent victims of the ISIS onslaught.
Sometimes fiction precedes reality. That is the case with ISIS Begins. A politico-religious thriller first written in 2010, and updated in recent months after Ken’s most recent trips to northern Iraq, it gives readers a ringside seat to a tragedy that never should have happened. Everybody with any involvement on the ground in Iraq, from U.S. government officials to Christian aid organizations to journalists like Ken, knew what would happen once the U.S. pulled out of Iraq.
ISIS Begins takes you on a journey of the heart, bringing alive the sufferings of Iraqi Christians persecuted for their faith by jihadi Muslims. It also unveils the deep corruption and utter cynicism of some career U.S. government officials, who used their power to enrich themselves at the expense of their fellow citizens—while decimating a Christian community that still uses the language of Jesus at home and in church.
“I have spent my life tracking the murderers of yesterday. Ken Timmerman is tracking the murderers of tomorrow.”
“Timmerman names names… We’re going to have to get this book in the hands of a lot of people... Your book is fabulous!
