Eleventh Day
With access to thousands of recently released official documents, fresh interviews and the perspective that can come only from a decade of research and reflection, Anthony Summers and Robbyn Swan have written the most complete and definitive account of 9/11 we may ever read. For millions in the West, September 11, 2001 is the darkest day in living memory. The terrible attacks in America sent a shock around the world that reverberate to this day. Ten years on, Osama bin Laden is dead, but the questions remain. What exactly happened on 9/11? Could it have been prevented? How and why did so much acrimony and bad information arise from the ashes of the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a quiet field in Pennsylvania? And what remains unresolved? "The Eleventh Day" investigates the response of President Bush and the U.S. military, and the failure to intercept the hijacked airliners. It documents the inaccurate official stories told afterwards, considers the contentions of the '9/11 Truth' movement, analyses the motives behind the onslaught, exposes the blunders by U.S. intelligence before the attacks, and notes how the Bush administration tried groundlessly to link Iraq to 9/11. And the book confronts the question the 9/11 Commission failed to answer: were the terrorists backed by powerful figures in other foreign nations? Riveting, revelatory and unforgettable, "The Eleventh Day" is the essential one-volume work on a pivotal episode in our history.
