The attacks of September 11, 2001 were accomplished through an amazing orchestration of logistics and personnel. This book claims to discover and identify key suspects--some in the highest echelons of American government--by showing how they acted in concert to guarantee the desired result. The author offers an interdisciplinary analysis of petroleum, geopolitics, narco-traffic, intelligence and militarism--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. America's global dominance depends on a continually turning mill of guns, drugs, oil and money. Oil and natural gas--the fuels that make economic growth possible--are subsidized by American military force and foreign lending. In reality, 9/11 and the resulting "War on Terror" are parts of a massive authoritarian response to an emerging economic crisis of unprecedented scale. Peak Oil--the beginning of the end for our industrial civilization--is driving the elites of American power to implement unthinkably draconian measures of repression, warfare and population control.--From publisher description.
