Ever since 9/11 America has fought an endless war on terror, seeking enemies everywhere and never promising peace. In Pay Any Price, James Risen reveals an extraordinary litany of the hidden costs of that war: from squandered and stolen dollars, to outrageous abuses of power, to wars on normalcy, decency, and truth. In the name of fighting terrorism, our government has done things every bit as shameful as its historic wartime abuses - and until this audiobook, it has worked very hard to cover them up.

Unter dem Deckmantel der Terrorismusbekämpfung führt die US-Regierung einen Krieg, der in keinem Verhältnis mehr zur tatsächlichen Bedrohung durch terroristische Organisationen steht. Es geht um ein Milliardengeschäft und das Interesse einiger Menschen, diesen Krieg am Laufen zu halten - koste es, was es wolle. James Risen zeigt, wer die Akteure sind. Seit 9/11 führt Amerika einen endlosen Krieg gegen den Terror, weltweit und ohne das Versprechen auf Frieden.
