In this concise tour de force, Christopher Bollyn again proves his journalism. Truth takes few words.
The hope of today's media is that we will get lost in their meandering mazes of twaddle. Their objective is exposed in * The War on Terror -- The Plot to Rule the Middle East *
This little book is dearly wanted. A timeline begins in 1977, taking the reader where he needs to go. As the author reminds us, "the war on terror" has been going on for 16 years. The power of news organs to corral public opinion is staggering.
Isn't it time that people looked up from their idiot boxes? How dense do you have to be -- not to get your intelligence insulted by TV?
Most things worth knowing are written in books. That is why universities have bookstores. The lines are always long there because without the text, you cannot learn. What you read is retained. What you hear is often forgotten. Everything revolves around the written word for this reason. That is why the media pushes videos at you. If you want to know a man's soul, read his books.
According to Bollyn, the same men who were involved in 9/11 were killing off German rocket scientists in the early 60's (Operation Damocles). What stone did he leave unturned? Bollyn exposes them all.
On page 83 we are treated to the loudest headline I have seen in years: "Who Makes the Terrorist Videos?" What a kicker. I have been suspicious about where these things are really from. And now I have my goods. What a bust.
On page 108, he quotes a French intelligence officer, "The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaeda. And any informed intelligence officer knows this."
Bollyn's text is larded with quotations that hit you like two-ton bombs. They are widely varied and come from all corners of the earth. Though they span centuries and continents, they are strung together by one golden thread.
Truth. It has a flavor.
