Curt Weldon, a former US congressman and vice-chair of the Armed Services Committee and the House Homeland Security Committee, presents a diatribe full of distrust and caution directed toward the intelligence community and the US public respectively. Weldon claims to have an informant named "Ali" (a pseudonym) with deep ties to international terrorist agencies who Weldon has received many alarming and far-reaching warnings from. Alpha Trivette voices this alarm with calm reserve and authoritative tone that aptly conveys the gravity of Weldon’s subject matter.
If someone knew when and where the next major terrorist attack was to be to take place against America, wouldn't the US intelligence community want to know about it? In Countdown to Terror, US Congressman Curt Weldon, proves that "Ali," an informant with access to the minutes of the most secret Iranian councils does have details about many plots against the US. In fact, he has outright predicted - days, weeks, or months in advance - numerous terrorist plots that were actually carried out our thwarted at the last minute. Still, the CIA, the DIA, the NSA, and the FBI in the US have all repeatedly refused to listen to him, even going as far as to threaten him for his communications with Congressman Weldon. "Ali" now warns of an even greater threat than the 11th of September 2001 - a plot called "The 12th Imam" - which the US intelligence community must act upon, or face catastrophic consequences. Congressman Weldon exposes a deeply dysfunctional culture and perverse political agendas in American intelligence that are endangering American security. He also explains why the recent restructuring of the intelligence agencies will do nothing to fix the country's broken and failing intelligence services.
