911 Report is not the complete investigation ;it is merely an Government historical, histerical view of al- quaeda or Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves
The book is great. Once I began to read it, I couldn't put it dow. It goes into great depth, and really gives a firsthand account of 9/11.
Great sourcebook on the 9/11 debacle - America's greatest security disaster of all time, and how it happened. Despite billions of taxdollars for defense, our government was unable to protect us from 19 Saudi 'students' with box cutters. Very sobering stuff. The book shows how deeply Iran was involved with Al Quida, too. The book details how easy it was for even known terrorists ('blind shiek Rahman') to enter the U.S. and set up 'shop', even after it was known that he was in prison in Egypt for terrorism. This book is a total indightment of the entire U.S. 'security' establishment, and of political correctness over security. The new problem is that Bush has set up yet another huge, inefficient department - 'Homeland Security', not learning the lessons of 9/11. Bush also has not done enough to secure our borders, especially our southern border. This book is very good, but I was surprised that it has no index (!). I would have given it 5 stars, but lack of an index earns it only 4.
