Based on a composite of interviews conducted in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks, Chomsky, one of America's most esteemed and influential radical thinkers, uses his impeccable knowledge of globalisation and US foreign policy in the Middle East to shed light on Osama bin Laden and the long-term implications of America's military attacks abroad. Speaking out against responding to violence with violence, as such tactics only succeed in undermining democracy in any meaningful form, he demands policies of a more long-term, humane and honorable nature.

Chomsky makes the claim [among too many numerous lies to mention] that the attack came as a surprise to the intelligence services of the West - - so he's never heard of Julie Sirrs, or others who tried to sound the alarm? He's never heard of Ahmad Shah Massoud, nor his speeches before the European Parliament [the Northern Alliance leader was not allowed into the US, as were Taliban personnel!]??? I seldom agree with the reviews by the Library Journal, but on this rare occasion I most certainly do! There's a great video on Chomsky at the Corbett Report web site. Very fair, very balanced (and no, I don't listen to anything owned by Rupert Murdoch), so you will hear directly how Chomsky supports the Warren Commission Report (guess, like so many others, he's never read that work of incompetent fiction?), the official story on 9/11, and the Federal Reserve Bank? No wonder I've always thought of Chomsky as Mr. Status Quo, and not a geniuine progressive nor radical! Chomsky, also known as Prof. Nebulous, seldom gives a talk when he doesn't attack President Kennedy and spout and spew revisionistic nonsense [lies, which he never sources, naturally] about him. Yet Chomsky never mentions his previous working relationship with Henry Kissinger? [Chomsky, Jeremy Rifkin, Peter G. Peterson, Kevin Phillips and Paul Krugman: the great fraudsters and misinformation specialists of our time.]

Somehow, even with all the Chomsky I have read, this book was not what I expected of him. I'm not sure why that is, and have wondered a bit at that. I think the biggest thing is that it is calm. I may have expected it to be more angry, but it seemed to lack anger. It was a calm, rather sad, and reasoned discussion around the destruction of the Trade Towers. An excellent read — one that I will be reading again.
