Washington DC (PRWEB) October 18, 2006
Progressive Press announced that its "9/11 Synthetic Terror" has just been cited as the best non-fiction book ever by Amazon's top non-fiction book reviewer, intelligence professional Robert Steele, in a 5-star review at http://www.amazon.com/dp/0930852370 .
Progressive specializes in books that contend 9/11 was an "inside job." Publisher John Leonard says "it's a coup to have Steele with us on this. Here you have a level-headed, respected insider, lifelong Republican, veteran spy, and he's breaking the taboos. It's a great tribute and a vindication of the work we put into 9/11 Synthetic Terror."
Steele's statement that 9/11 was a "US-based conspiracy" may be a first coming from a senior US intelligence community figure. He came to this conclusion "with great sadness" after reading "9/11 Synthetic Terror: Made in USA," which he praises as "without question, the most important modern reference on state-sponsored terrorism."
A unique feature of "9/11 Synthetic Terror" is that Tarpley does not blame an entire government or agency. His "rogue network" model features small numbers of moles infesting critical nodes in key institutions like the CIA and mass media.
Steele also believes the CIA's mission has been subverted by the follies of the covert operations branches, for example, the fake evidence for a war on Iraq. He says the majority of CIA and military officers are honest; it's the system that is corrupt.
When Steele is not reading hundreds of non-fiction books, he's busy trying to put some intelligence back into the intelligence business. His website, http://www.oss.net , advocates open source information sharing for peacekeeping.
In his review "Among Hundreds of Books, The Strongest Approach to Truth," Steele notes, "Most fascinatingly, the author links Samuel Huntington, author of Clash of Civilizations, with Leo Strauss, the connecting rod between Nazi fascists and the neo-cons." According to Steele's biography on Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_David_Steele , he "is a former Marine Corps infantry and intelligence officer for twenty years and was the second-ranking civilian (GS-14) in U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence from 1988-1992. Steele is a former clandestine services case officer Central Intelligence Agency."
Tarpley was a Fulbright scholar in Italy, where he exposed the Red Brigades as a countergang run by NATO intelligence to defeat Eurocommunism. In 1991 he broke the story of the Bush dynasty's deep involvement in financing Nazism with "George Bush: The Unauthorized Biography," also published by Progressive Press.

In a separate development, Tarpley's publisher Progressive Press is giving away 2,000 copies of a 352-page book, "You're Not Stupid: A Brief on the Bush Presidency," for fundraisers. More information at http://www.ProgressivePress.com.
