The Nuclear Terrorist: His Financial Backers and Political Patrons in the U.S. and Abroad Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The threat of nuclear terrorism and weapons of mass destruction has never been greater, yet, as this devastating exposé makes clear, Americas leaders, including the last two Presidential administrations, have been shockingly lax and often chillingly reckless when it comes to protecting the United States—and the world—from the spreading threat of nuclear proliferation and the very real possibility that terrorists will stage a nuclear bombing or meltdown on American soil . . . with catastrophic results.

Taking no prisoners, Robert Gleason's The Nuclear Terrorist demonstrates how time and again both the Bush and Obama administrations have placed politics and profiteering over public safety; how the government has failed to effectively guard and regulate a “peaceful” nuclear industry that is both cataclysmically expensive and apocalyptically dangerous; how Americas nuclear power plants remain vulnerable to both physical and cyber attacks; and how our elected leaders and their advisors continue to do business with rogue states, untrustworthy and unstable “allies,” and terrorist backers, while turning a blind eye to the all-but-inevitable consequences of such deals with the devil.
