Drawing on extensive archival research and interviews with dozens of policy makers and CIA, Pentagon and foreign service officials, Dreyfuss follows the trail of American collusion from support for the Muslim Brotherhood in 1950s Egypt, to links with Khomeini and Afghani jihadists, to longstanding ties between radical Islamists and leading Western banks.
