Shadow War

The Untold Story of How Bush Is Winning the War on Terror

Who’s Really Winning the War on Terror?

If you believe the conventional wisdom, you would think President Bush had completely bungled the War on Terror.

But the facts tell a dramatically different story.

Bestselling author Richard Miniter uncovers in this astounding new book how our military and our intelligence agencies have accomplished an amazing string of victories—tracking down would-be mass murderers, thwarting new diabolical terrorist plots here and abroad, gaining a remarkably detailed understanding of how and where the terror network is organized, and preventing attacks on America since September 11, 2001.

Miniter’s Shadow War unfolds during the first 911 days of President Bush’s War on Terror, from the September 11, 2001, attacks in New York and Washington, D.C., to the March 11, 2004, bomb blasts in Madrid, Spain. It is a story of sleeper cells and patient plots, phone intercepts and covert operations, boldly triumphant captures and breathtakingly close escapes.

Along the way, Miniter, author of the New York Times bestseller Losing Bin Laden, answers the three vital, unanswered questions of the War on Terror:

  • Where is Osama bin Laden?
  • Why hasn’t there been another terrorist strike inside America since September 11, 2001?
  • Is President Bush winning the war?

Miniter files from the front lines in Baghdad, Bangkok, Singapore, Manila, Hong Kong, Khartoum, Cairo, Paris, London, Frankfurt, Hamburg, New York, and Washington, DC—uncovering the triumphs and tragedies the media establishment fails to report.

Inside Shadow War, you’ll discover:

  • New intelligence about Osama bin Laden’s secret refuge. The location will surprise you—and has shocking implications for national security.
  • How more than 3,000 al Qaeda operatives have been seized or slain in 102 countries since September 11, 2001.
  • The Bush administration’s secret plan to hit al Qaeda before September
    11, 2001.
  • A never before reported plot to assassinate President Bush in 2002—and the embarrassing intelligence failure it revealed.
  • How America captured the “al Qaeda admiral” and stopped his fifteen-ship fleet from being used as floating bombs.
  • Why Iran is financing attacks against American and allied forces in Afghanistan and Iraq.
  • Why al Qaeda has been sending operatives to scuba school to learn how to dive—but not to resurface.

The major media has missed many of the biggest developments in the War on Terror. Shadow War brings the facts to life: The unreported story of the War on Terror is that we can win it, and that victories are being won every single day.
