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.
