Countdown to Crisis: The Coming Nuclear Showdown with Iranby Kenneth R Timmerman
Synopses & Reviews
MARCHING TO ARMAGEDDON <BR>In his chilling new book, "New York Times bestselling author Kenneth R. Timmerman blows the lid off the greatest threat America faces: a nuclear-armed Iran that is closely allied with international terrorists--and bent on destroying us. <BR>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 reveals that the Iranian nuclear program is far more advanced than we've feared. "Countdown to Crisis also uncovers the Iranian Islamist regime's extensive--and ongoing--support for Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda. Perhaps most frightening, Timmerman documents how our intelligence community's arrogance, incompetence, and willful blindness have repeatedly kept us from dealing with the Iranian threat. <BR>And now it could be too late. <BR>In "Countdown to Crisis you'll discover: <BR>-The first-ever inside account of Iran's clandestine nuclear weapons program--revealing how the mullahs could already have enough nuclear material for twenty to twenty-five bombs <BR>-The secret locations where Iran has been sheltering bin Laden--and the terrorist attacks they now are jointly planning against America and our allies <BR>-How U.S. intelligence has consistently ignored warnings about Iran's secret nuclear program--and how United Nations officials blew repeated chances to shut it down <BR>-Stunning new evidence of Iran's involvement in the 9/11 plot--including documents the CIA tried to withhold from the 9/11 Commission <BR>-How an Iranian defector gave the CIA two months' advance warning of a "massive attack on America" scheduled for September 11, 2001--buthow the Agency brushed him off, even after 9/11 <BR>-An insider's account of how Iran turned to North Korea for nuclear weapons assistance starting in 1992 <BR>-How Iran worked on nuclear weapons hand-in-glove with the infamous A. Q. Khan network--with help from Germany, Swit
From the nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize 2006:
“The most urgent and disastrous threat to world peace today is the looming danger that Iran will produce nuclear weapons. . . . Kenneth R. Timmerman, a U.S. expert on Iran, has for more than twenty years exposed Irans nuclear activities and intentions. . . . Despite the illusions of many in positions of power, he has been right, again and again. His latest book, Countdown to Crisis: The Coming Nuclear Showdown with Iran, lays out this ongoing scandal in chilling detail.” —Per Ahlmark, former Deputy Prime Minister of Sweden, nominating Timmerman for the Nobel Peace Prize
