By M. Kasper on November 20, 2006
Format: Hardcover
While I was deciding how I should start a review of Peter Lance's new book - I remembered a quote from Monica Gabrielle, one of the 9/11 widows, in a documentary about 9/11: "The one thing that I personally was hoping for was another Woodward and Bernstein with regard to 9/11. Someone, anyone that was willing to put their teeth into this."

Well, we have found that person, and his name is Peter Lance. In his third book on the origins of the 9/11 plot and the failures of the FBI and others to stop the attack, Lance focuses on Ali Mohamed - yet another figure relegated to footnotes in the "9/11 Report" who Lance shows played a central role in Al Qaeda's plan of attack. Not only did he help create the "Brooklyn Cell" which supported the 9/11 hijackers, but he wrote the training manual for Al Qaeda and created training camps for hijackers, all while the FBI thought he was on their side as an informant!

The best part of Triple Cross is the way Lance weaves together the different strands of the 9/11 story and enhances them with his own original reporting on each. For example, the book quotes from numerous interviews Lance conducted with Tony Shaffer, Curt Weldon, and other members of the Able Danger team. While not a full history of Able Danger, it has by far the most complete version in any book published to date.

Some have expressed frustration at the delays in publication, but I can attest to the fact that Lance needed the extra time in order to include all of the latest details from the interviews National Geographic conducted for their documentary based on his book, and the latest developments in the Able Danger and Greg Scarpa Jr. scandals. It is a great read, and uncovers a lot of new information about the 9/11 plot.

With out a Doubt the best single book on Terrorism in print. triple Cross by Peter Lance out paces the 9-11 commission report, the Looming Tower, and the Cell by a long shot (those sources all have value, But Lance shows us what they left out). Lance does an excellent investigated job hear (the book is well source and documented), of explaining the raise of OBL, and AlQuada, he shows us what the FBI knew and didn't know, what The Clinton Administration knew did not know and the Bush Administration as well. lance shows us the mistakes and outright incompetence in our government (especially the FBI). Lance names names and holds nothing back. The book is worth ten times the price for the 23 page timeline on terrorism alone. This is a must read for anyone wanted to know the whole story of 9-11 and beyond.

...investigative journalist in the world...UN...BE...LIEVE...ABLE. If you have an interest in 911, or even America's national security, force yourself to order this book. This book goes beyond just education, and is rather a unique opportunity to see a master investigator at work. If you have a chance to hear Lance speak, I recommend that too, as he is engaging to say the least.

Lance simply checks out everyone's stories, interviews all the players from all over the world, connects the dots, and leaves nothing to heresay. Five years of investigation by Lance, who seems to be the master of investigative journalism. Lance meticulously collected about 150 volumes of records[see the full 2 hour CSPAN talk]. Lance's facts(which you can see summarized in his website's timeline[right top on [...]) are considerately buffered with valuable context(therefore the 600 pages!).

It sickens me to understand one self-financed journalist could do so much while the FBI did so little. Although Lance asserts there is no Oliver Stone parrallel government type conspiracy and chalks up all the FBI fiascos as incompetence and covering up their embarrassment; one has to question whether the possibility of a real conspiracy should be left open, considering the enormous breadth of the incompetence...and considering that rank-and-file FBI [and others] hollered so loudly while their superiors quieted them. Lance of course also connects the dots[and outlines how others in the government that connected the embarrassing dots were punished]. I originally was turned onto his book after seeing his two hour jaw dropping talk on CSPAN. This guy deserves a special medal higher than the Medal of Freedom for his service to Truth and people everywhere. I'd like to see Mel Gibson or some other independent produce this into a movie.

Well-documented narrative of events and people leading up to the terrorists attacks of 9/11/01. Follows through with research and background regarding the 9/11 commission report and what is NOT in it. Includes many little-known facts that shed a great deal of light on the history of terrorism in the US.

Peter Lance has done an excellent independent investigative report. Although hindsight is 20/20 if even a small percentage of what he reveals is true, even with mitigating factors, much reporting about the runup to 9/11 has been a whitewash. Politicians and government employees were more interested in CYA and career advancement (and political infighting) than in learning from their mistakes.

This is not a conspiracy theory book. Peter Lance does not appear to have an agenda, and admits the shortcomings of this type of after-the-fact report. However, much of what is in this book should have been in the 9/11 commission's report. There have been many mistakes and bad decisions, and Americans deserve to know the truth.

Read it!!!
