A day-to-day examination of what happened in America in the year following the terrorist attacks. Big names and relatively unknowns find themselves woven into Brill's tapestry of aid workers, victims, and politicians.
Bamford applies his relentless investigative drive and impeccable sources to explain why American intelligence agencies failed to predict and prevent the disaster of 9/11 and lays bare the Bush administration's role in formulating justifications for the preemptive war on Iraq. (Publisher's description)
"...Among the lingering questions: Why did the U.S. government pay so little attention to the urgent warnings from foreign and domestic intelligence agencies about an impending attack? Why does a range of evidence seized by Federal agencies remain unavailable to the public? How much of the official story bears up to detailed scrutiny? As the first carefully researched and documented examination of the 9/11 attacks since the publication of the Kean Report, 9/11 Revealed lays out a shocking set of possibilities about the day that has become a turning point in our history." (Book jacket)
Noam Chomsky's defense of Pol Pot and the genocidal Khymer Rouge, as well as his bizarre associations with Holocaust revisionists, may surprise those who think they know what he believes. Other Chomsky views, such as his claim that the United States has taken the place of Nazi Germany on the world stage, will be more familiar. With Chomskyism growing here and abroad, Collier writes, "It is clearly time for a reckoning."
The essays in this book provide a response to the millions of words Noam Chomsky has written in the past forty years. Examining Chomsky's controversial ideas about various foreign and domestic issues and even the legitimacy of the linguistics theories on which his reputation rests, The Anti-Chomsky Reader explores the dark corners of what the New Yorker recently called "one of the greatest minds of the twentieth century."
Long-time political and media critic Noam Chomsky gives his view that the 9-11 attacks were part of a long chain of international events, with the brunt of the blame being borne by the push for capitalist globalization.
