ISIS Begins: A Novel of the Iraq War

Post Hill Press
Free sample

In 2008, Ken Timmerman warned the U.S. government and the American public that Christians were “facing extinction” in northern Iraq. In the summer of 2017, he was back on the ground, debriefing the most recent victims of the ISIS onslaught.

 

Sometimes fiction precedes reality. That is the case with ISIS Begins. A politico-religious thriller first written in 2010, and updated in recent months after Ken’s most recent trips to northern Iraq, it gives readers a ringside seat to a tragedy that never should have happened. Everybody with any involvement on the ground in Iraq, from U.S. government officials to Christian aid organizations to journalists like Ken, knew what would happen once the U.S. pulled out of Iraq.

 

ISIS Begins takes you on a journey of the heart, bringing alive the sufferings of Iraqi Christians persecuted for their faith by jihadi Muslims. It also unveils the deep corruption and utter cynicism of some career U.S. government officials, who used their power to enrich themselves at the expense of their fellow citizens – while decimating a Christian community that still uses the language of Jesus at home and in church.

 

“I have spent my life tracking the murderers of yesterday. Ken Timmerman is tracking the murderers of tomorrow.”

—Simon Wiesenthal

 

“Timmerman names names… We’re going to have to get this book in the hands of a lot of people... Your book is fabulous!

– Rush Limbaugh, on Shadow Warriors

“An alarming but necessary book that reads like a thriller. By raising uncomfortable questions, Ken Timmerman has performed a significant public service.”
–Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk radio host

Some have called it the CIA’s greatest covert operation of all time.

It is an intelligence war conducted behind the scenes, aimed at confusing, misleading, and ultimately defeating the enemy. The goal is nothing less than toppling the regime in power. A network of agents has been planted at key crossroads of power, stealing secrets, planting disinformation, and cooking intelligence. The plan involves sophisticated political sabotage operations that bring in opposition forces who can challenge the regime openly, in a way the CIA cannot. The scope is breathtaking.

Who is the target of this vast, sophisticated CIA operation? Not the mullahs in Tehran or North Korea’s power-mad Kim Jong Il; the target is America’s president, George W. Bush.

Drawing on exclusive information from senior government officials, intelligence operatives, and many others, investigative reporter Kenneth Timmerman provides the full, untold story of the sabotage that occurs behind the scenes at key government agencies like the CIA and State Department–and the profound effect it has on America’s ability to confront its most dangerous enemies. In Shadow Warriors, Timmerman brings to light the vast underground working to undercut our nation’s efforts to win the war on terror–revealing the when, where, how, and who for the first time. He also exposes the Democratic politicians who have sold out America’s national security for political gain.

In Shadow Warriors you’ll learn:

•How the CIA and State Department sabotaged the administration’s Iraq war plans from the start–sparking the insurgency in the process
•How a high-level State Department official gathered aides after Bush’s reelection to insist they owed no allegiance to the president or his policies
•How pre-war intelligence on Iraq was cooked–not by the Bush administration, but by its opponents
•How and why the shadow warriors have leaked details of virtually every covert U.S. intelligence tool used in the war on terror
•How the leaks have devastated our efforts to fight terrorism–such as when a key U.S. ally rebuffed the CIA director’s request for assistance by saying, “You Americans can’t keep secrets”
•Why U.S. intelligence refused to examine important documents detailing the secret Iraqi networks that became the heart of the insurgency
•How newly discovered Iraqi government documents reveal the extent of Saddam Hussein’s ties to international terrorists and the truth about his WMD arsenal

Shadow Warriors shows that George W. Bush never got the first rule of Washington: People are policy. He allowed his political enemies to run roughshod over his administration. This insider’s look at secret White House meetings, political backstabbing, and war-room summits is an eye-opening account of the mind-set that is crippling our effectiveness in Iraq and around the world.
