What Jenny is Reading Now

After reading two books on North Korea, Jenny picked up "Why America Slept" on my recommendation. Many books have been written about the horror and tragedy of 9/11, but this book by Gerald Posner is the first one to provide a fully detailed account of the failures of the Clinton administration.

Gerald Posner's bestselling book on the events leading up to the September 11 terrorist attacks on the US was highly critical of the Clinton adminstration Posted by Picasa

Jenny was surprised to hear that Sudan actually offered to hand over Osama bin Laden to the US back in the mid-1990s, but Clinton and his advisors turned down the offer becaused they did not think he could be convicted in the US criminal court system. Just one one the many tidbits in this book that the mainstream media has effectively covered up because they make Clinton look bad.

I found that Author Posner is most effective in his efforts to "connect the dots", beginning with the first World Trade Center attack in 1993, just a month after Clinton took office. As the "United Way of terrorism", al Qaeda and a network of Muslim countries have been waging war on the West for nearly a decade before the September 11 attacks. In meticulous fashion, Posner masterfully shows the connections between the first World Trade Center bombing and all major terrorist attacks on US interests leading up to 9/11.

I suspect Jenny will be reading some of the other current events books on my shelf after finishing this one.
