Book Description

10 Aug 2001
Ahmed's first book on 9/11, The War on Freedom, was acclaimed around the world for its meticulous compilation of facts about the event. Published just a little over half year after the attacks, it was the first book to document the inconsistencies and contradictions in the US government's official version of what happened. This new book, The War on Truth, was originally intended to be an update of that text, but the amount of new material available warranted an entirely new volume. Though this book retains the analysis and information of the earlier title, it doubles the data and adds extensive new material, including an analysis of the 9/11 Commission Report and wider discussion of US policies toward al-Qaeda. For anyone who remains uneasy about the alignment of reported facts and official narrative, Ahmed's new book is an invaluable resource. Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed is executive director of the Institute for Policy Research and Development in Brighton. He is the author of many internationally acclaimed research papers and reports on human rights practices and Western foreign policy. His latest book is Behind the War on Terror: Western Secret Strategy and the Struggle for Iraq.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very thorough 13 Feb 2008
By Chris
Like Ahmed's other books, the research and referencing of publicly available information is second to none. Each chapter and sub-section is very clearly structured by presenting the information and evidence, linking it to other information and ideas, and then analysing, interpreting and concluding from the evidence.

While it could be argued that some of Ahmed's conclusions are incorrect, inaccurate or plain false, this book definitely takes a new approach to 21st century terrorism. At the very least it makes the reader question not only the political propaganda surrounding the war on terror, but also the world media coverage and especially the work of the 9/11 commission.

I can't say I agreed with all of the conclusions, and a few of his ideas do come across as being little bit far fetched. However, it is definitely worth reading, regardless of your political and social beliefs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reading for the inquiring mind 3 July 2007
By jc
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book provides a mass of information and attempts to draw conclusions from the evidence. While some would disagree with the conclusions presented, the wealth of information presented,discussed and analysed that is normally hidden by mainstream media makes this book an absolute must for anyone who wants to get closer to the truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars the war on truth 19 Mar 2006
By Michael Jenkins VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book like ahmed's other 2 books should be required reading for any one who supports what we are doing in the so called war on terror, it should be stuffed down the throats of our so called free press, and while we are at it the washington post, new york times and fox news could at least give it an honest review.Take care Mr Ahmed, as the title of your book suggests we are heading down the slippery road to a police state, of which new laws such as "the glorification of terror", and i.d. cards are just the beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on the story behind 9/11 4 July 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Best book on the story behind 9/11. I have read several. Ahmed has done a mass of good work digging up the details and following leads. He reveals a very murky tale, probably because the "authorities" seem to have done a terrific smokescreen job. If no more than 10% of what Ahmed says is true, you & I, John Citizen, have a dreadful problem with them. He has done another book on London's 7/7 attack, and found another bag of worms. Too many conflicting official "stories". Impossible "coincidences". Overwhelming evidence of facilitation among the highest levels. Israeli agents living in the same street as the 9/11 hijackers, quietly deported without arrest. Money paid by Pakistani ISI top brass to Mohammad Atta's bank account in USA. Known al Qa'eda sympathizers and Saudi nationals, including known relatives of bin Laden, flown out of USA immediately after 9/11 when all other flights still grounded, without even questioning, despite FBI's fury. Unbelievable stance that Air Force and Fed Aviation Auth "not in communication", despite having a direct link. Automatic interception by fighters practised every day for years, requiring no special authorization, routinely intercept "odd" flight paths, but denied on Sept 11. Disappearance of "commander-in-chief" at crucial decision time. On the day everyone behaved as though sedated. A masterpiece of deliberately organized chaos.
Why ? Qui bono ? Took brakes off war on Iraq (a money mine for dodgy contractors associated with ruling elite) -- when Iraq never had ANY connection with 9/11. Allowed predeveloped law on "homeland security" to be flashed into law, removing more public freedom overnight than the ruling elite had managed to steal in decades.
