The Secret War with Iran | [Ronen Bergman]

The Secret War with Iran

In the years since 9/11, the U.S. war on terror has focused on al-Qaeda, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Coverage of Iran has been devoted almost exclusively to its nuclear ambitions. Yet, as Ronen Bergman's groundbreaking reporting in this vital investigative history reveals, for 30 years, Iran has been the world's leading sponsor of global terror and stands as the most formidable sponsor of terror in the world today.

Publisher's Summary

The 30-year clandestine struggle against the world's most dangerous terrorist power.

In the years since 9/11, the U.S. war on terror has focused on al-Qaeda, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Coverage of Iran has been devoted almost exclusively to its nuclear ambitions. Yet, as Ronen Bergman's groundbreaking reporting in this vital investigative history reveals, for 30 years, Iran has been the world's leading sponsor of global terror and stands as the most formidable sponsor of terror in the world today. Bergman, one of Israel's top investigative reporters, gained unprecedented access to extraordinary sources from top to bottom in the Mossad and intelligence agencies around the world.

Based on over 10 years of research and more than 300 exclusive interviews with key intelligence figures, he reveals that Iranian terrorist masterminds have crisscrossed the globe, conducting bombings and assassinations with impunity---even renting apartments and planning bombing attacks in New York City. Iran's proxy, Hizballah, has virtually taken over southern Lebanon and threatens Israel with high-powered weaponry supplied by Iran. Iran and Hizballah worked closely with al-Qaeda and other Sunni terrorist groups in developing their terrorist operations, and Iranian commandos trained Iraqi insurgents in the crafts of suicide bombing and the building of the roadside bombs that have killed so many U.S. troops in Iraq.

In response, and largely beneath the public's radar, a vast clandestine war has been fought with Iran and Hizballah on one side and the CIA, Israel's Mossad, and their European counterparts on the other. The full story of that secret war, told for the first time here, will fundamentally change the debate about U.S. national security priorities. A new axis of evil is emerging from Iran and spreading around the world, and Bergman shows that the CIA and the Mossad have so far been unable to thwart it. The Secret War with Iran is riveting and urgent.

    Story
    "More about Hezbollah and Hamas, little about Iran"

    An interesting book, but you'll learn more about Israel and Hezbollah and Hamas, organizations through which Iran acts secretly. I was hoping for more about the overt hostilities with Iran, and the inner workings of Iran, but as the title says, it's the secret war. Overall, good, but not exactly about Iran.

    "A Must Read !"

    This is probably the best audio book I have ever listened to about current events in the Middle East, specifically events in Iran and Israel.
    The material is accurate, well researched and clearly presented.
    As always, Dick Hill does a great job of narrating.

    Story
    "Unbelievable Stories of US, Iran, Israel,"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anyone who want to know the 'truth" about who knew, and knows about the last 35 years of international terrorism paid, supported, endorsed, sponsored, and conceived (yes all of these) by the Nation of Terrorism, IRAN, has to read this book. The general public is in the dark about what Iran is doing to this world.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret War with Iran?

    The clear fact that every western government has absolute and unequivocal knowledge of each and every terrorist act sponsored directly by the highest levels of government of IRAN for the last 35 years, and all of them have sold us all lies and BS, for fear of further terrorist acts against their citizenry.


    If you could give The Secret War with Iran a new subtitle, what would it be?

    How our governments have lied to us about the knowledge the CIA, MI6, M5 and every other intelligence agency has regarding IRAN active support of international terrorism on a DAILY basis.
