Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0312592493, Hardcover)

Osama Bin Laden is unquestionably the leader of the world’s most deadly terrorist cult. He has perverted the teachings of Islam to create a fringe religious ideology, Bin Ladenism, where only al-Qaeda speaks for God.  In his cult, suicide bombing is the highest form of worship and the mass murder of Muslims proves one’s devotion. 

Al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attack on the United States was just a small part of Bin Laden’s long-term strategy to win a civil war for control of Islam.  By fighting his terrorists solely with bullets and bombs and ignoring his war on Islam, we have bolstered Bin Laden’s recruiting efforts abroad, undermined civil liberties and economic security at home and tarnished America’s reputation internationally.

Career intelligence officer Malcolm Nance proposes a quantum shift in how to eliminate al-Qaeda in less than twenty-four months, while recreating America’s reputation as a force for good around the world. His plan includes:

·         Exposing al-Qaeda’s mission to create a nuclear armed terror Emirate, incite a Muslim civil war and eventually seize of control of Islam.

·         Challenging and breaking the perceived spiritual link between the mainstream Islam and al-Qaeda’s cultist ideology.

·         Attacking al-Qaeda fighters through precision intelligence and special operations missions, thereby reducing the deaths of innocent civilians.

·         Reframing and restoring America’s shattered image in the developing world in order to support the global counterterrorism and counterinsurgency campaign.

An End to al-Qaeda is both a revolutionary blueprint for destroying al-Qaeda and a fierce critique of America’s poorly executed war on Bin Laden’s terrorists.

Bin Laden has built a large following by perverting Islam to justify the mass murder of innocent people. By fighting him with bullets and bombs we have bolstered Bin Laden's recruiting efforts abroad, undermined civil liberties and economic security at home and tarnished America's reputation internationally. The author retools the "War on Terror" to assert that the U.S. could eliminate Al Qaeda in less than 24 months without a single violent military action, while recreating America's reputation as a force for good around the world. Nance's plan includes: dominating the information battlespace by exposing Al Qaeda to the rest of the international Moslem community as the global death cult that they are; waging a war against the fear Al Qaeda has stoked; drastically reducing the number of heavy military operations that cause the death of civilians in the process; and relying more heavily on counterintelligence to root out the terrorist group.--From publisher description.… (more)
