520    Al Qaeda is the most dangerous terrorist movement in 
       history. Yet most people in the Americas and Europe know 
       very little about it, or their view is clouded by 
       misperceptions and half truths. If the first rule of war 
       is to "know your enemy," then we have a long way to go. 
       This important audiobook fills this gap with a 
       comprehensive analysis of al Qaeda-the origins, leadership,
       ideology, and strategy of the terrorist network that 
       brought down the Twin Towers and continues to threaten us 
       today.Bruce Riedel is an expert on the Middle East and 
       South Asia, with thirty years of intelligence and 
       policymaking experience. He was actually in the White 
       House Situation Room during the 9/11 attacks, serving as 
       special assistant to the president and National Security 
       Council senior director for Near East Affairs. He draws on
       this insider experience in profiling the four most 
       important figures in the al Qaeda movement: Osama bin 
       Laden, its creator and charismatic leader; ideologue Ayman
       Zawahiri, its Egyptian coleader and principal spokesman; 
       Abu Musaib al Zarqawi, leader of al Qaeda in Iraq until 
       his death in 2006; and Mullah Omar, its Taliban host. 
       These profiles provide the base from which Riedel delivers
       a much clearer understanding of al Qaeda and what must be 
       done to counter it.The Search for al Qaeda reviews how al 
       Qaeda was created and developed, presenting authoritative 
       and chilling background on "The Manhattan Raid," but 
       Riedel focuses more closely on what has happened to it 
       since that awful day. He outlines al Qaeda's ultimate 
       goals, which are to drive America out of the Muslim world,
       to destroy Israel, and to create a jihadist caliphate 
       larger than the Ottoman Empire at its height. The profiles
       and subsequent analysis reveal the network's multipronged 
       strategy for accomplishing those goals:Draw America into 
       "bleeding wars" like the one that drove the Soviets from 
       Afghanistan.Build a safe haven for al Qaeda in 
       Pakistan.Develop other "franchises" in the Islamic world 
       that can overthrow pro-American regimes.Conduct more 
       Western attacks along the lines of 9/11 or the transit 
       bombings in Madrid and London.The audiobook concludes with
       a strategy for dealing with-and defeating-this most 
       dangerous menace.
