Publisher Comments:

Paul Thompson's The Terror Timeline offers a complete and thorough history of the many roads that converged on 9/11, including the development of Islamic fundamentalism, the activities of bin Laden and al-Qaeda, and the failures of U.S. investigations and counterterrorism efforts. It traces the actions (and inactions) of every important figure in the war on terror, both before and after 9/11, bringing them together in a volume that offers a comprehensive and provocative look at this complex subject. Packed with little-known facts and disturbing questions, The Terror Timeline is the first complete reference guide to the events of 9/11 and the war on terror — the definitive primer on the most momentous issue of our times.

About the Author

A former California environmental activist, he worked to preserve the rainforest in Borneo. Thompson divides his time between California and New Zealand.

Used as basis for excellent DVD, 9/11 The Press for Truth, the Timeline book goes into comprehensive coverage of all the public information available related to 9/11. It seeks to "connect the dots." It's reccommended reading instead of the 9/11 report and continues to add new information as it arises on its internet data base, the terror timeline.

The author recounts how he became aware one day that the front page and evening news he was getting differed from back page stories that caught his attention. When he began to look into, he said it was like Alice falling down the rabbit hole.

As much as I've read on 9/11 and followed in the news, it was eye opening to see the DVD based on this book. It confirmed a lot of the suspicions I harbored: that the administration lied and covered up about what they knew about 9/11: Ashcroft told to not fly commercial July, 2002; Bush's hotel in Florida on 9/10 protected by mobile anti-aircraft missiles (unusual); 254 generals told not to fly commercial on 9/11....on and on and on.

The escape of Osama Bin Laden, the involvement of Pakastani intelligence (ISI) both in the attack and in the evacuation of Bin Laden.

I was so upset and mad as it unfolded aspects of the story that up til now had nagged and bothered me.

That $100 million was spent on the Monica/Clinton investigation, but reluctantly $3 million allocated for the 9/11 commission (eventually raised to $13 million) and all kinds of constraints and roadblocks put in 9/11 commission's way.

Anyone preoccupied with 9/11 or having nagging doubts about our government's lack of transparency, this is a key source. Richard Clark has it as assigned reading for one of his Harvard classes.
