Two recently published books and a continued pattern of hysterical terror propaganda in the US mass media compel attention.
The first is the publicity campaign around the new book, "Imperial Hubris," about to be published by Brassey's, which is attributed to Anonymous, a currently serving officer of the CIA. Anonymous is said to have been the first leader of the CIA's Osama Bin Laden station during the mid-1990s. It is therefore quite possible that this person represents a witting mole. It is above all remarkable that the publication of this book has been permitted by the CIA bigwigs.
The most important component of this campaign, pushed by CNN's David Ensor and others, is the assurance that an ABC (atomic, biological, chemical) terror attack on the US is now imminent. The New York Times (June 23) quotes Anonymous as having "a pressing certainty that Al Qaeda will attack the continental United States again, that its next strike will be more damaging than that of 11 September 2001, and could include use of weapons of mass destruction."
Anonymous openly lionizes Bin Laden, saying that Bin Laden's vast accomplishments are due to the fact that he actually believes in something. Anonymous, following the line of Richard Clarke in "Against All Enemies" is highly critical of the Bush regime for having deviated from the true existential world struggle against al Qaeda. "There is nothing that bin Laden could have hoped for more than the American invasion of Iraq," writes Anonymous, who describes Bush as al Qaeda's ideal American president.
What begins to emerge from the Clarke and Anonymous volumes taken together is first of all a growing recognition in US ruling circles that the Iraq adventure has long since crossed the line into irrevocable disaster. Their concern is now to safeguard oligarchical rule. To obtain this, they are more than willing to jettison the pathetically incompetent Bush regime and its phalanx of discredited neocon ideologues. But Clarke and Anonymous are both the type of bureaucrat who can expect to enjoy vastly increased power under martial law. The Clarke-Anonymous attempt is therefore to preserve false-flag terrorism in the guise of al Qaeda as the indispensable means of social control for the indefinite future. In this regard they appear more than willing to tolerate a new round of ABC/WMD terrorism to make sure that the terror card remains available, since they see no other way of maintaining the current regime.
Even more explicit is the book "Osama's Revenge," whose author, the "former FBI consultant" Paul L. Williams, was publicized by Fox News on June 28, 2004, at 1:50 PM. According to Williams (bio and blurb below) Osama Bin Laden already has 20 Soviet-made suitcase bombs, and these nukes are already in the United States. Williams estimates al Qaeda's strength in this country at about 5,000 sleeper agents who are now ready for action. He also cited a warning that New York City was a nuclear target which was allegedly given by Tenet to Bush in October 2001, but never communicated to Mayor Giuliani. Williams has the profile of a borderline psychotic personality, but that proved no obstacle to being invited back for a return performance by the Fox hostess.
On June 24 at 2:25 PM on Fox News, the "terrorist and security expert" [sic] Harvey Kushner opined that al Qaeda is certain to attack the United States this summer.
On June 30 at 4:55 PM, Col. Oliver North (sitting in for the vacationing neofascist syndicated radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh) announced that the lesson of Madrid was that there was sure to be a large-scale terror attack in the US before the November elections.
These examples are a small sample of the incessant terror demagogy of the controlled corporate media of all political stripes. It should be stressed that such statements do not represent simply the random ravings of the personalities involved, but rather reflect the talking points that are well known to be faxed out by the White House to friendly media outlets. The terror drumbeat is being orchestrated by the Bush White House directly.

"Osama's Revenge" by Paul L. Williams
From the Inside Flap:
Does Osama bin Laden have nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction? Is so, where are they? Are they in the hands of al Qaeda sleeper cells in the United States? Should Americans be bracing for a nuclear attack?
Former consultant for the FBI an organized crime and international terrorism and a seasoned investigative reporter, Paul L. Williams reveals the potential for nuclear terrorism on US soil in this shocking expose. Based on the findings of US, Israeli, Pakistani, and British intelligence, Williams describes how the theft of tactical nuclear weapons from Russian arsenals have in all likelihood made their way to al Qaeda cells throughout the United States in preparation for the next terrorist attack.
Williams presents clear evidence showing that, in the chaos following the breakup of the Soviet Union, the Chechen Mafia got its hands on portable Russian nuclear weapons. Between 1996 and 2001, mafia members negotiated the sale of twenty nuclear "suitcase bombs" to representatives of Osama bin Laden. Far worse than so-called "dirty bombs," each suitcase bomb is capable of killing millions of Americans while exposing millions more to deadly radioactive fallout. According to Williams, reliable sources indicate that these bombs may already be in the possession of al Qaeda operatives in such major cities as New York, Washington, Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas, Houston, and Los Angeles. In addition, bin Laden has recruited former Soviet scientists and technicians to maintain these weapons and recharge their nuclear cores so that they may be deployed immediately on his command. In 2001 he issued a statement boasting of his intent to have America experience a "Hiroshima."
Also included in the book are bin Laden's "Letters to America" and his "Declaration of War against the Americans Occupying the Land of the Two Holy Places," as well as the World Islamic Statement declaring "Jihad against Jews and Crusaders." These crucial documents highlight the rationale behind and the depth of bin Laden's hatred for the United States. Moreover, Williams documents that Osama has the international network of embedded terrorists to carry out his threats.
Although the media have reported on some of these threatening developments and government insiders have acknowledged the threat of nuclear attack, until now no one has put all the pieces together in a coherent, nonsense way. Williams makes a persuasive case that bin Laden and his deputies have the motive and the means and are just waiting for the opportunity to launch an apocalyptic attack on the "Great Satan" of America.
