“Quis custodiet ipsos custodies?”
[Who will guard the guards themselves?]
Roman poet Juvenal, Satires, vi.347
Knowledge is indeed power.
The information within this book will empower Americans who are ready for some straight talk about the many factual anomalies, conflicting claims, and unanswered questions that still surround the horrific attacks of September 11, 2001.
It was these provocative attacks which provided the underlying justification for all that followed - the hurried passage of The Patriot Act, increases in the defense and intelligence budgets, the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq, the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, and the stifling of dissent in a nation that claims to be free.
