The War on Freedom: How and Why America was Attacked, September 11, 2001 by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed.
Barry Zwicker, Vision TV Insight, Feb. 2002
"The most complete book I know of, summarizing the relevant background and foreground intersecting upon the events of September 11..."
Peter Spengler, Contemporary Studies Review, Feb. 2002
Your excellent report goes deep into what really happened and what the American defense machinery had let happen.
Prof. John McMurtry, University of Ontario
This riveting and thoroughly documented study is a �must� resource ... provides the detailed documentation in a definitive and masterful record.
A disturbing expos� of the American government�s hidden agenda, before and after the Sept.11, 2001 terrorist attacks. A wide range of documents show U.S. officials knew in advance of the "Boeing bombing" plot, yet did nothing. Did the attacks fit in with plans for a more aggressive U.S. foreign policy? Nafeez Ahmed examines the evidence, direct and circumstantial, and lays it before the public in chilling detail: how FBI agents who uncovered the hijacking plot were muzzled, how CIA agents trained Al Qaeda members in terror tactics, how the Bush family profited from its business connections to the Bin Ladens, and from the Afghan war. A "must read" for anyone seeking to understand America�s New War on Terror.

5 of 5 stars This research will effectively recast history regarding 9/11, July 30, 2002
Reviewer: A reader from Washington, DC United States
I am going to be blunt: The research behind this book will effectively recast history with respect to September 11, 2001. This brilliant UK-based author has compiled the relevant research from over 700 resources in the mainstream media and methodically and meticulously presented what the U.S. media and our government has refused to do - provide a comprehensive analysis of the events that surround that tragic day in September. I must confess, this is the most disturbing book that I have every read, and the implications about this government are so dire that it will bring tears to the eyes of the most hardened of men. I am an American and a patriot, but what the current Bush administration has done is set this country on an unavoidable collision course into a national crisis the likes of which we have not seen since the Presidency of Abraham Lincoln. This immensely important book is a virtual indictment of the current administration, and we will soon have a crisis of legitimacy, trust and confidence in our own government. I cannot begin to articulate the importance of this book to every American who wants to understand why 3000 of our fellow citizens were murdered on the that awful morning, thus I will simply post a few statements from the author and quotes from our founding fathers in the hope that God will bless this country during our impending national crisis:
"As far as the facts on record are concerned, the best explanation of them, in the opinion of this author, is one that points directly to U.S. state responsibility for the events of September 11th 2001. A detailed review of the facts points not only to Kabul, but to Riyadh, Islamabad and most principally, Washington. Furthermore, in the opinion of this author, the documentation presented in this study strongly suggests, though not necessarily conclusively, that significant elements of U.S. government, military and intelligence agencies had exclusive advance warning of the September 11th attacks, and were in various ways complicit in those attacks. This is certainly not a desirable inference, but it is one that best explains the available data.
At the very least then, the facts on record demonstrate with certainty an ongoing U.S. policy of willful and reckless indifferences to American lives, motivated fundamentally by strategic and economic interests. This policy has been relentlessly pursued, regardless of the dangers to American lives, of which the U.S. policy-making establishment is fully aware. This policy therefore amounts, even at the lowest possible level of involvement, to deliberate if indirect complicity in the September 11th attacks, on the part of the Bush administration.
Although it is the opinion of this author that the documentation gathered strongly indicates the conscious complicity of the Bush administration in the 9/11 attacks, it should once again be emphasized that this stuffy does not aim to provide a conclusive or exhaustive analysis. It is primarily intended to collate the innumerable facts surrounding the events of September 11th, of which the public is largely unaware, and clarify them with extensive documentation.
These facts have simply not been addressed in an adequate fashion in the media, and the conventional version of events officially espoused by the Bush administration, and slavishly repeated by the media and academia, fails to account for or explain them. Most commentators, including supposed critics of U.S. policy, are content to arbitrarily dismiss any discussion of the role of the U.S. government in the 9/11 as irrelevant. But as this study demonstrates, the facts on record are far too important in their implications to be dismisses by anyone who is serious about understanding the events of September 11th.
In the final analysis, then, this study points to a host of unanswered questions and blatant anomalies that U.S. government, military and intelligence agencies must be forced to answer through a public inquiry. Such an inquiry is clearly a matter of the greatest urgency, and must be demanded as such by all sectors of society."
"Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other...No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare." - James Madison
"We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes." - President Eisenhower's Farewell speech, 1961
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, it expects what never was and never will be ... The People cannot be safe without information. When the press is free, and every man is able to read, all is safe."- Thomas Jefferson
"When a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security." - Thomas Jefferson
"To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards out of men." - Abraham Lincoln
This Book is MUST Reading for Freedom Loving People, August 7, 2002
Reviewer: Mark Phillips from Arroyo Grande, CA USA
Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed has assembled in one location the most complete set of information regarding the events leading up to and the day of the 9-11 attacks. The data is not pretty but is vitally important. For example, with 2 combat ready fighter squadrons in the, "highest state of alert" at Andrews Air Force Base, just 10 miles away from Washington D.C. and with at least 40 minutes of warning (actually over an hour) these jets were not scrambled to intercept (i.e. make visual contact with) the plane that flew into the Pentagon as standard NORAD operating procedures would demand. Unless and until a complete, public and INDEPENDENT investigation is conducted, the data leads me to believe that our government at least allowed the attacks to occur. Certainly the conduct of our leaders since 9-11 and the huge political currency they have reaped lends credance to this theory. People interested in this subject should also see... and follow those links. There are lots of people asking very simple questions that our corporate controlled media is trying its best to bury. Please take a proactive position in this matter. It is not an exaggeration to say that our freedom is at stake.
5 of 5 stars THE Book on 9-11 ! You will NOT understand 9-11, UNTIL NOW., August 3, 2002
Reviewer: A reader
British social analyst, Nafeez Ahmed, has done a great service to America and the world in this meticulously sourced examination of what occurred leading up to and on 9-11.
This book is a MUST READ for every U.S. citizen, and every U.S. Congressperson. IF A U.S. CONGRESS PERSON VOTES IN ANY WAY REGARDING 9-11 INVESTIGATIONS, OR ON WAR ISSUES BASED ON THE 9-11 ATTACK "WITHOUT" READING THIS BOOK, HE/SHE WILL BE DOING A GREAT DISSERVICE TO ALL AMERICANS.
The critical questions of how the mightiest military force in the world allowed it's capitol to be attacked 2 HOURS after 4 jets were hijacked, and the behind the scenes oil pipeline deals that required President Bush to "find an excuse" to bomb Afghanistan to punish them for pulling out of the infamous Unocal oil pipeline deal, are effectively researched and explained in this ground breaking work.
