Editorial Reviews

Washington Post
... based on direct, on-the-record quotes from participants.... Miniter has written a bitter indictment of the American president. —Robert D. Novak
The Wall Street Journal
...Miniter's investigative reporting on the eve of the second anniversary of the terror at the World Trade Center makes for provocative reading. — James Taranto
Washington Times
...remarkably well-researched.... "Losing bin Laden" is a valuable history that should serve as a training manual in how not to run a foreign policy. — Caspar Weinberger
Forbes Magazine
Chronicles in grim, eye-popping detail how the Clinton Administration mortally bungled our pre-9/11 efforts against global terrorism. The author tapped an extraordinary array of sources to piece this sorry tale together. This book delivers a devastating blow to the former President's reputation. When Clinton took office, Osama bin Laden was a two-bit player in global terrorism. By the time George W. Bush took office, bin Laden was a master of that hideous universe, with cells in 55 countries and a record of numerous successful attacks against U.S. targets. Read this book and you won't wonder why bin Laden thought the U.S. was a paper tiger that, despite its strength, lacked the will to effectively fight Islamic fanaticism. (15 Sep 2003)
