This is a vital and timely book that tells of the current state of the Qaeda terrorist threat to America. Catherine Herridge does a tremendous job of investigative reporting on America's current Public Enemy #1 Anwar al-Awlaki, the evolution of al-Qaeda since 9/11, and the government's on-the-ground response to it. The book is short (227 pages, plus notes, index, etc.) and is easy to read in one sense, although the level of detail and the many Arabic-named characters means the reader has to pay ...more

Hooboy, this book will scare the heebeegeebees out of you. I'd give it a three but the narrative is sometimes too detailed. But any less narrative and the stories might be as believable.

Very interesting book on the current situation we are facing here in America. Catherine Herridge does an excellent job of bringing up examples of terrorist activity, how these people worked and how they were stopped or unfortunately missed.

An excellent book, but I had to give four stars due to the lack of a chronological order, which made certain part rather confusing. Otherwise, I highly re ...more

This is not a book I would recommend to anyone who wishes to sleep at night. Catherine Herridge is a journalist, and this book takes you deep into her research regarding American citizens involved with Al Qaeda. Mrs. Herridge is not shy about giving her opinion, and if you want to know how 9/11 could have happened and what other horrors may be in store for our nation, this is the book to read.

This book (2011) already feels slightly outdated, but there is still plenty of useful information to learn from here.
