Lone Rock, WI, July 13, 2009 - Was America’s War on Terror a ghastly mistake? Did the United States sacrifice thousands of lives and billions of dollars for nothing? These are among the suppositions that author Kevin Barrett, a Ph.D. and Arabist-Islamologist, examines in his new book, Questioning the War on Terror: A Primer for Obama Voters.
Dr. Barrett knows his conclusions will stir up controversy and bring emotions to a boil. He has appeared on Fox, CNN, PBS and other television networks to defend his research and will continue his quest to open the media’s eyes to possibilities they have dismissed.
Writing in a down-to-earth style, Dr. Barrett offers
extensive, scholarly documentation to support such startling conclusions as:
* The War on Terror triggered our current economic catastrophe
* Terrorism is less of a threat than lighting bolts and bathtubs
* There is no connection whatsoever between Islam/Muslims and terrorism
* The only significant terrorists in today's world are governments
* Osama Bin Laden repeatedly denied and deplored 9/11, and the FBI agrees he didn't do it
* Historians agree that many of the biggest terrorist
attacks in history may have been false-flag "inside jobs" committed by the
enemies of the people blamed for the attacks.
Because these conclusions are so radically different from the worldview of the mainstream media, readers may appreciate that in Questioning the War on Terror: A Primer for Obama Voters, they are framed as open-ended questions rather than dogmatic assertions.
“Americans are 30 times more likely to die from lightning strikes, and 10 times more likely to drown in their bathtubs, than to be killed by terrorists,” Dr. Barrett said. “Should we declare war against lightning bolts and bathtubs? Should we install PA systems in our bathrooms reminding us that the threat level of bathtub drowning has been raised to orange? Should we create a new Department of Bathtub Security empowered to do sneak-and-peak warrantless searches of our bathrooms to make sure that we're using no-slip bath-mats? Would this be any crazier than what we're doing now?”
Using the Socratic method, Questioning the War on Terror asks 54 hard questions that, taken together, attack the central notion on which our post-9/11 political life has been based. It concludes with a list of 22 concrete actions that readers can take to end the War on Terror and achieve the change they voted for in the 2008 presidential election.
Kevin Barrett, Ph.D., is one of America's best-known critics of the War on Terror. He taught at colleges and universities in San Francisco, Paris and Wisconsin, where he ran for Congress in 2008. Dr. Barrett currently works as a nonprofit organizer, public speaker, author and talk radio host. His website is http://www.truthjihad.com
“Kevin Barrett is taking on a big sacred cow, one that hardly anyone in the mainstream media or in Congress would dare to seriously question -- the War on Terror, which in the past eight years has joined the flag, motherhood and apple pie as things an American dares question only at the risk of being labeled 'unpatriotic' or a 'supporter of terrorism.' Barrett delves into many of the assumptions behind the War on Terror: the myths, the lies, the propaganda. The reader should be prepared to question some of his favorite political beliefs.”
