Countdown to Crisis: The Coming Nuclear Showdown with Iran


Countdown to Crisis: The Coming Nuclear Showdown with Iran Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his chilling new book, New York Times bestselling author Kenneth R. Timmerman blows the lid off the greatest threat America faces: the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Using his exclusive access to previously classified documents, Iranian defectors and officials, and high-level sources in the U.S. government and intelligence community, Timmerman blows the lid off previously unreported threats and our intelligence communitys failure to deal with these dangers.

And now it could be too late.

To get the complete story on Irans radical Islamic regime, Timmerman crisscrosses the globe, taking the reader into secret terrorist gatherings in Tehran, into tense meetings in the White House, to debriefings at an obscure CIA outpost in Azerbaijan, to diplomatic face-offs in the Kremlin, and to many other spots along the way. His extensive investigative reporting allows him to lay bare the true nature of the Iranian threat.

For Americans interested in the truth about Iran, Countdown to Crisis may amount to a call for action-or even a case for war.

Book News Annotation:

Those who remember the case for war with Iraq based on evidence (since discredited) about Iraqi nuclear weapons programs and cooperation with Al Qaeda might be forgiven for thinking that journalist Timmerman merely made a typo in his attempt to scare Americans about Iran. We have the same reliance on often anonymous "present and former U.S. government officials and trusted sources within the intelligence community" and Iranian defectors, at least one of whom has been tagged as "a fabricator of monumental proportions" by the Central Intelligence Agency. Timmerman attempts to tie the Iranian regime to numerous acts of terror, including the 9-11 attacks, and argues that its nuclear programs are designed to build weapons with which they can menace the United States and Israel. Given the nature of his sources, however, it is near impossible to decipher how much of his information has basis in the real world.
