In August 2003, Lance's 1000 Years for Revenge, a broad survey of Al-Qaida operations in the US prior to 9/11 was published by Harper Collins. The book presents evidence that the FBI missed dozens of opportunities to stop the attacks of September 11, dating back to 1989. One thing seems clear, had there not been the murderous attacks of 9/11 there probably would have been no war. Now a new book to be released tomorrow, 1000 Years For Revenge: International Terrorism and the FBI, contends that the FBI could have and should have prevented the 9/11 attacks.

Excellent documentary of international terrorism and how the FBI and other government agencies did not connect the dots, share intelligence, and played too much CYA. This book read like a novel and was very educational if you like history. I was truly surprised how long the terrorist threats have been out there prior to the World Trade Center bombing and then the 911 attack.

Outstanding book. Not an easy read for many reasons, most of which is the sad situation we find ourselves today. The Author has painstakingly documented his findings, complete with all references to source documents and interviews. It should be a must read to graduate the FBI Academy. Its an incredible tale of cover-ups careers ruined for speaking up, Keystone cops in action and the death of over three thousand of our countrymen while our sworn protectors fought over their own turf. Hindsight is always better than foresight, I get that. But after reading this book, you'll realize there is an enemy within and J. Edgar Hoover's FBI is a thing of the past.

This book confirms that no matter the organization--private business, non-profit, or government--what rises to the top is way too often not the cream of the crop, but those who can play politics, manipulate situations, and befriend more powerful superiors.

The people involved that allowed this to happen should all be charged with negligence. Of course that will not happen. As much as I would LOVE to lay all the blame on the Clinton years, it is likely that he was not aware of what was going on because there are just too many layers of (mis)management involved for any useful information to rise to the top. Poor judgement after poor judgement is laid bare in this well researched book.

And, to say that the Bush administration is at fault would be equally wrong. They were faced with the wrong information that had been cultivated for years by those who were supposed to be protecting us.

One oversight in the book is where we could quite possibly place the true blame--Congress! Only a few of us ancient readers (nearly 60) may recall that the LIBERAL CONGRESS made it illegal after Watergate for the FBI and the CIA to share information. It was ILLEGAL for the CIA to pursue any leads that they might find overseas in the US.

The irony that the liberal Democrat-controlled Congress of the '60's and '70's, which passed ever more intrusive legislation for citizens, made it impossible for our intelligence community (oxymoron??) to find the truth is palpable.

Of course after 9/11 those same self-rightous liberals were incensed that the Bush presidency "let" this happen. One can only wish that they eventually look in the mirror and recognize where the blame belongs--but I won't hold my breath waiting.

Backstabbing happens everywhere. This is no surprise to anyone who is familiar with office politics.

The sad part is to what degree such backstabbing can impair the work of law enforcement, especially where national security is concerned. There are even some in the FBI, who are more concerned about maintaining their petty fiefdoms than paying attention to real threats on the horizon. Had they kept their eyes on the ball, 9/11 could have been stopped.

1000 Years For Revenge is a great read, but suffers from a little bit of megabook syndrome. The same information could have been presented in 85%-90% of the book length. Still, this is a MUST-READ for anyone who wants to understand the road to 9/11.

The research done for "1000 Years for Revenge" is impeccable; the detail is exacting, and the tragedy of what happened is unforgivable. To really understand the resentment building up to 9/11, read Mr. Peter Lance's "1000 Years for Revenge," emphasis on the "for." Not 1000 years of revenge, "1000 Years for Revenge." The world around us hated us, and we let them strike at our weakest time at our weakest location: in the heart of the nation that can never be fully restored by the massive losses. Make is a slow read so you can fully comprehend the motivation behind 9/11. It's a page turner, no doubt. Digest it carefully, and then tell your friends so it never happens again.

This book was well researched, and very well written. After reading this book you will never trust the F.B.I. with our safety ever again. The absolute incompentance of that Federal office is mind boggling. So many chances where had to stop the 1st bombing of the trade center, and the ultimate, 9-11-01. To many critical

intel was ignored, and so many lives paid for inter agency infighting, along with the Clinton administration of stonewalling the FBI CIA, from sharing intel on terrorist and so many other national security issues. Lets hope the Feds can get their act together in time to stop the next attack on our country. God Bless the USA.

Well written, well researched and very informative.
Fascinating countdown to 9/11! It's difficult to keep all the foreign names straight, but the summary in the center of the book are a great help. Really gives an insight to what REALLY happened... and how stupid SOME people were!
