About the Book

Before September 11, 2001, the reality of terrorism for most Americans was limited to TV reports from other countries. We only knew of the cruelty through terrible sound bites and video footage from other countries, oceans away where the horror was real. But we weren't directly involved. We empathized, helped in our own ways, but it wasn't happening on American soil, so it wasn't directly a part of our lives. That is no longer true. Now, terrorism is terrifyingly real to all Americans. On 9-11, it hit at home with devastating impact.

However, 2001 wasn't our first confrontation with terrorism. America has had to deal with Middle Eastern terrorist threats before. In the 1980s, the Reagan administration was forced to look at the horrifying possibilities, and had the unenviable task of determining the course of history.

How much do you really know about former President Reagan's administration, and how those in power at the time dealt with the prospect of Middle Eastern terrorism? What circumstances lead to decisions that impact us today? What was America's policy on terrorism then? Did we actually have a policy?

This book takes a close and unbiased look at a significant time in American history. Compiled from actual documents and records, this book takes you through pertinent events and surprising laws that influenced and molded America's current situation regarding terrorism. How did Ronald Reagan and then Vice President George Bush meet the challenges? Where did Qaddafi fit in, and what motivated him to push America? Were we given all the facts then? Was an actual policy enacted toward terrorism? You are invited to read the facts presented and draw your own conclusions--you may be quite surprised by what you read here.
