I thought the book made some good points, primarily that in the face of the common (and Bush Administration) idea that this was a religiously-motivated attack, it was instead a political act, a protest against US policies in the region.
However, in recent years, it appears that Schueur has drunk the Q-anon kool-aid and the Trump conspiracy nonsense as well... Openly calling for violence against “Democrats”:
Pretty disturbing stuff, making you wonder just how deeply this stuff has infected people across the board.
That is a truly horrifying read. So many parallels with Nazi rhetoric in Germany in the 1930s.
