Advance Praise for Mastermind
"Mastermind is a heart-pounding read that not only reveals the never before told story of KSM and his terrorist plots, but also the politics surrounding his capture and possible trial. Miniter has it all. If you want the real story behind KSM from beginning to end you must read this book."
-Richard Perle, former assistant secretary of defense
"In telling the full story of KSM, Richard Miniter also reveals the conditions that bred so many other dangerous terrorists-conditions that persist today as much as ever. This is a fascinating book and a must read for those who want to understand the greatest threat to our nation's security."
-General Richard B. Myers, ret., former chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff
"An absolutely captivating biography of the wheelhorse of Islamist terror. Learn, for example, how the FBI's insistence on unnecessary formalities in 1996 left Khalid Shaikh Mohammed free to plot and direct 9/11. Impossible to put down. Stunning."
-R. James Woolsey, director of Central Intelligence
"Richard Miniter has written a lively book that raises and offers answers to fascinating questions about Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, one of the world's most murderous and significant terrorists."
-Douglas Feith, former undersecretary of defense for policy; author of War and Decision --Various

Top customer reviews
Khalid Shaikh Mohammed was water boarded during the Bush administration. The author believes this mild form of torture saved countless lives. The terrorist mastermind has been replaced by other evil Jahadis. This existential struggle to the death will likely continue long after we are gone. We cannot afford to think KSM's detention or even Osama bin Ladin's death puts everything behind us. You should read Miniter's book to help you more clearly understand the conflict. Ignorance is not bliss.
