Overview

The destruction of the twin towers of the World Trade Center and the attack on the Pentagon -- all within one hour on September 11, 2001 -- demonstrated America's shocking vulnerability to terrorism.

Yet terror had already emerged on America's shores eight years earlier, when the mysterious terrorist mastermind, Ramzi Yousef (arrested after a botched attempt to down a dozen U.S. airlines) bombed the World Trade Center in an attempt to fell the buildings.His attacks were viewed as the harbinger of a new terrorism, carried out by an elusive enemy driven by religious fanaticism to unprecedented hatred of the United States.

But is that perception accurate? A real-life detective story, The War Against America engages the reader in a gripping examination of the evidence regarding Yousef and his terrorism. It reveals the split between New York and Washington that emerged during the investigation and tells a terrifying tale of America left exposed and vulnerable following the mishandling of what was once the most ambitious terrorist attack ever attempted on U.S. soil.

    Very Persuave reading

    I couldn't put this book down once I started reading it. Laurie Mylroie does a great job of persuading readers of Iraq's link to the World Trade Center bombing and other acts of state sponsored terrorism. Her analysis of the Clinton Whitehouse and it's handling of the UN Inspectors who were interferred with by Iraqi officials was quite eye opening.

    Disappointing

    The only good thing I can say after reading, The War Against America is that it´s easy to follow. I was highly disappointed throughout this book. This book fails to provide credible evidence linking Saddam Hussein to the WTC attacks. In other words the book doesn´t live up to it´s cover. Few facts with a lot of speculation and opinion.
