Synopses & Reviews
The attacks of September 11, 2001, were accomplished through an amazing orchestration of logistics and personnel. Crossing the Rubicon discovers and identifies key suspectsandmdash;finding some of them in the highest echelons of American governmentandmdash;by showing how they acted in concert to guarantee that the attacks produced the desired result.
Crossing the Rubicon is unique not only for its case-breaking examination of 9/11, but for the breadth and depth of its world pictureandmdash;an interdisciplinary analysis of petroleum, geopolitics, narcotraffic, intelligence and militarismandmdash;without which 9/11 cannot be understood.
The US manufacturing sector has been mostly replaced by speculation on financial data whose underlying economic reality is a dark secret. Hundreds of billions of dollars in laundered drug money flow through Wall Street each year from opium and coca fields maintained by CIA-sponsored warlords and US-backed covert paramilitary violence. Americaandrsquo;s global dominance depends on a continually turning mill of guns, drugs, oil and money. Oil and natural gasandmdash;the fuels that make economic growth possibleandmdash;are subsidized by American military force and foreign lending.
In reality, 9/11 and the resulting andldquo;war on terrorandrdquo; are parts of a massive authoritarian response to an emerging economic crisis of unprecedented scale. Peak Oilandmdash;the beginning of the end for our industrial civilizationandmdash;is driving the and#233;lites of American power to implement unthinkably draconian measures of repression, warfare and population control. Crossing the Rubicon is more than a story. It is a map of the perilous terrain through which, together and alone, we are all now making our way.
