Osama bin Laden by Michael Scheuer( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Other available biographies depict Osama bin Laden as a historical figure, the mastermind behind 9/11, but no longer relevant to the world it created. These accounts, the author believes, have contributed to a widespread and dangerous denial of his continuing significance and power. In this book the author, the first head of the CIA's bin Laden Unit, provides a closely reasoned portrait of bin Laden showing him to be a figure of remarkable leadership skills, strategic genius, and considerable rhetorical abilities. 9/11 almost instantaneously remade American politics and foreign policy. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Patriot Act, water boarding and Guantanamo are examples of its profound and far-reaching effects. Because he led the effort to track down bin Laden, the author is able to draw from a wealth of information about bin Laden and his evolution from peaceful Saudi dissident to America's Most Wanted. Shedding light on his development as a theologian, media manipulator, and paramilitary commander, the author makes use of all the speeches and interviews bin Laden has given as well as lengthy interviews, testimony, and previously untranslated documents written by those who grew up with bin Laden in Saudi Arabia, served as his bodyguards and drivers, and fought alongside him against the Soviets. The bin Laden who emerges from these accounts is devout, talented, patient, and ruthless; in other words, a truly formidable and implacable enemy of the West
Imperial hubris : why the West is losing the war on terror by Michael Scheuer( Book )

29 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and Japanese and held by 2,333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An anonymous member of the U.S. intelligence community maintains that we are, in fact, losing the war on terror. Although aspects of the modern world may offend conservative Muslims, no Islamist leader has fomented jihad to destroy Western institutions. Rather, a growing segment of the Islamic world disapproves of specific U.S. policies and their attendant military, political, and economic implications. Osama bin Laden articulates a consistent and convincing case that Islam is under attack by America. "Anonymous" contends Al Qaeda seeks not to destroy our secular, democratic way of life, but to deter what they view as specific attacks on their lands, their communities, and their religion. Unless U.S. leaders recognize this fact and adjust their policies accordingly, even moderate Muslims will join the bin Laden camp

Marching toward hell : America and Islam after Iraq by Michael Scheuer( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CIA veteran Scheuer examines the ongoing instability in Iraq and argues that the U.S has provided al Qaeda and its allies with the one thing they want most: a safe haven from which to launch operations across borders into countries that were previously difficult for them to reach. With U.S. forces and resources spread thinner every day, the war has depleted our strength and brought al Qaeda a kind of success that it could not have achieved on its own. Scheuer takes on the questions of "What went wrong?" and "How can we fix this?" and proposes a plan to cauterize the damage that has already been done and get American strategy back on track. He lists a number of painful recommendations for how we must shift our ideological, military, and political views in order to survive, even if that means disagreeing with Israeli policy or launching more brutal campaigns against terrorists.--From publisher description

Saudi Arabian oil facilities : the Achilles heel of the Western economy by Michael Scheuer( Book )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On February 24, 2006, the world's largest oil refinery, the Abqaiq oil facility in Saudi Arabia, fell victim to a major attack by al-Qaeda. The strategic attack on Saudi Arabia's largest oil refinery nearly succeeded in knocking out of production the seven million barrel per day Abqaiq refinery which would have caused a major disruption in Saudi oil production. Through his use of indigenous sources, Ulph assessed how al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri had "been urging the targeting of oil installations in the Gulf States as part of the 'bleed until bankrupt' strategy against the United States." Four weeks later, Jamestown analyst John Daly predicted in the February 23, 2006 issue of Terrorism Monitor the high value and vulnerability of Saudi Arabia's oil facilities to an attack by al-Qaeda. One day later the refinery suffered its first ever attack in an operation of immense strategic importance. This Occasional Paper is the collective analysis of Daly and Ulph, along with the insights of Michael Scheuer, founder of the Bin laden Unit at the Central Intelligence Agency. Scheuer discusses the implications of the 2006 attack of Abqaiq, as well as the possibility of future attacks on Saudi oil facilities and the repercussions from such an attack on the Western economy
