An interesting new book on Iran..

Here's part of a small review of Kennth Timmerman's "Countdown To Crisis, The Coming Nuclear Showdown With Iran"
But the most disturbing parts of Mr. Timmerman's book, some of which which we excerpt here, deal with the evidence suggesting Iran may have had a hand in September 11.

This includes how an Iranian defector gave the CIA two months warning of a "massive attack on America," scheduled for September 11, 2001, but how the agency brushed him off even after the events of that day; how Rep. Curt Weldon, Pennsylvania Republican, become so disturbed by the CIA's refusal to act on information that Osama bin Laden was in Iran that he contacted a bounty hunter in an effort to capture the terrorist; and how Iran continues to finance Abu Musab Zarqawi and Iraq's terrorist insurgency.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill would do well to examine Mr.Timmerman's account of how George Tenet and CIA analysts dismissed evidence the agency obtained summarizing ties between Iran and al Qaeda. The evidence included a description of how Imad Mugniyeh, a senior Hezbollah operative whose terrorist credits include the 1983 bombing of U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut which killed 241 U.S. servicemen, coordinated the travel of between eight and 10 of the September 11 "muscle hijackers."
