The first complete account of America's most dangerous foreign
policy miscalculation. A timely examination of the tragic paradox
of the American foreign policy that created the "War on Terror" -
60 years of support for Islamic fundamentalism. How - and why - did
the United States encourage and finance the spread of radical
political Islam? Backed by extensive archival research and
interviews with dozens of policy makers and CIA, Pentagon and
Foreign Service officials, Robert Dreyfuss argues that this largely
hidden relationship is greatly to blame for the global explosion of
terrorism. He follows the trail of American collusion from support
for the Muslim Brotherhood in 1950s Egypt to links with Khomeini
and Afghani jihadists and cooperation with Hamas and Saudi
Wahhabism. Dreyfuss also uncovers longstanding ties between radical
Islamists and the leading banks of the West. The result is as
tragic as it is paradoxical: originally deployed as pawns to foil
nationalism and communism, extremist mullahs and ayatollahs now
dominate the Middle East and are turning on their former patrons.
