America's Vulnerability to Terrorism
When The Eagle Screams was written prior to the first World Trade Center bombing. It is recognized as perhaps the first writing by an American author to warn that attacks on American soil were imminent. It predicted the events, the political response and almost every event to present day.
Contrary to the author's claim, there were a number of noted authorities who warned of imminent terrorist attacks on the US prior to 9/11 including Richard Clarke and Brian Jenkins, who in the 1980s even raised the possibility that terrorists would crash a hijacked airliner into urban skyscrapers or urban buildings.
