Summary
Born here, raised here, the terrorists of al Qaeda 2.0 aim to kill Americans--and our government helps. A radicalized army major guns down 45, killing 13; a legal immigrant tries to blow up Times Square; a radical Muslim born in New Mexico has a legion of fanatics in his web. This book reveals how that blood-crazed American, Anwar al-Awlaki, now hiding in Yemen, was treated to Pentagon pomp as a "moderate Muslim," and how our Justice Department hid his movements from the 9/11 Commission--even though al-Awlaki aided the hijackers. The terrorists next door turn our tech against us, exploiting Facebook, Skype, and outdated laws. Online terror recruiters are one of the Web's greatest success stories--yet our government refuses to stop them. Activists howl about "inhuman" conditions at Guantánamo--while pampered inmates laugh at our weaknesses. Washington shuts its eyes, and the next massacre in the name of Islam will be "made in the U.S.A."--Publisher description
