By Richard Dreyfuss
How the United States helped unleash Fundamentalist Islam. Robert Dreyfuss delves into the complex history of Islam, and exposes the failure, particularly of the Bush administration, to comprehend the dynamics of fundamentalist Muslim religious ideology. He demonstrates the disastrous (and little publicized) history of how western powers, including the British and Americans, sought to acheive elusive foreign policy goals by subsidizing fundamentalist extremism. The catastrohic results became clear on 9/11.
