The War on Truth: Disinformation and the Anatomy of Terrorism
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 a half year after the atacks, it was the first book to document the inconsistencies and contradictions in the 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 book, 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.
