by Michael C. Ruppert
£17.99   paperback  New Society Publishers (2004)

Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil by Michael C. Ruppert The attacks of September 11, 2001 were accomplished through an amazing orchestration of logistics and personnel. Crossing the Rubicon discovers and identifies key suspects - finding some of then in the highest echelons of American government - by showing how they acted in concert to gaurentee that the attacks produced the desired result. A superbly detailed scrutiny of the events of 9/11, the book also ranges across the terrain of rapidly diminishing hydrocarbon energy suplies, geopolitics, narco-traffic, intelligince and militarism - without which 9/11 cannot be understood. Crafted as a criminal investigation of a homicide, 'Crossing the Rubicon' examines: THE MOTIVES for the 9/11 attacks, including the Pentagon's need for a pretext for war that would enable an all-out drive for the planet's last reserves of oil and gas; Wall Street's need for liquid cash from restored traffic in Afgani heroin; and the administration's need for legal domestic repression during severe and imminent resource shortages; THE PERSONNEL, including Dick Cheney, the Pakistani Intelligence Agency (ISI), the Taliban, al Qaeda, the bin Ladens and elements of the government of Saudi Arabia; THE INTELLIGENCE, including covert software, the full complexity fo the US intelligence community, the connections with Wall Street and the Israeli Government; the carefully designed OPPORTUNITY on the day of the attacks, the role of the Secret Service and the US Vice President; THE COVERUP; and THE OUTCOME: 'The War on Terror' as pretext for the loss of US civil liberties and domination of world oil reserves.
