Summary
In the years since 9/11, the U.S. war on terror has focused on al-Qaeda, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Coverage of Iran has been devoted almost exclusively to its nuclear ambitions. Yet, as this investigative history reveals, for thirty years Iran has been the world's leading sponsor of global terror. Bergman, one of Israel's top investigative reporters, gained unprecedented access to sources in the Mossad and intelligence agencies around the world. Based on over ten years of research and hundreds of interviews with key intelligence figures, he reveals that Iranian terrorist masterminds have crisscrossed the globe, conducting bombings and assassinations with impunity. In response, a vast clandestine war has been fought with Iran and Hizballah on one side and the CIA, Israel's Mossad, and their European counterparts on the other. The full story of that secret war, told here, will fundamentally change the debate about U.S. national security priorities.--From publisher description
