really liked it
Recommended for: Serious students of Middle East politics and terrorism.

Don't expect this book to be anything like the movie Syriana. Although the movie was enjoyable in its own right, the book upon shich the movie is loosely based is much deeper and more thought-provoking. After reading it you can fully appreciate (if not truly understand) the head-in-the-sand attitude that has permeated US intelligence toward the Middle East, and the still-flawed attitude of the establishment toward terrorism.

Also, don't expect to be able to sleep soundly with a sense of security after reading this - you will begin to see in the daily news headlines that Washington is still a long ways from figuring out "what really happened" on September 11.
