  Jason Burke, who has written a new book (which is only available in the U.K. for now) called “Al- Qaeda: Casting a Shadow of Terror,” says we shouldn’t blame ourselves for not spotting al-Qaeda sooner and reminds us that, despite fighting two wars in the Middle East, we really don’t know what al-Qaeda is. Al Qaeda from /11 This class will examine how al Qaeda became increasingly violent once it rebased itself in Afghanistan in '96, with a particular focus on the US embassy bombing attacks in Africa, and the USS Cole attack in Yemen. We will also consider al Qaeda's researches into weapons of mass destruction. Bergen, ch.1 pp and pp.

I never implied that al Qaeda central directed plots were over, as some critics claimed after reading the title of the book instead of the book itself. See Hoffman, Rather, I argued that these homegrown disconnected plots would become predominant in the future over the centrally directed by:

Al-Qaeda: Casting a Shadow of Terror by Jason Burke (Jun) Hardcover Hardcover – January 1, /5(11). Marginally interesting account of Islamic terrorism, that is too densely populated with indistinguishable people and place names to really explain the history of Al-Qaeda.

It is clear, as Burke says repeatedly, that Al-Qaeda is, if still existing, a very loosely-confederated group of Islamic radical leaders, /5. In this extract from his new book, Al-Qaeda: Casting a shadow of terror, The Observer's chief reporter, Jason Burke, looks at the true nature of bin Laden's organisation and why the west's.

For a really illuminating account of that loose network of networks generically called Al-Qaeda this is considered by many as the most trustworthy and lucid work.

Written in an engaging prose, this history of the emergence and evolution of present day islamic radicalism is really unputdownable!/5(3). For those who are ready for the answers, Burke's book is a good place to start.

He not only corrects conventional misunderstandings of al-Qa'ida but offers a good representation of the radicalism the United States is attempting to contain. ''Drawing on frontline experience, on secret documents, and on interviews with intelligence officers, militants, mujahideen commanders and bin Laden associates, the author reveals the story of al-militants, mujahidden commanders and bin Laden associates, the author reveals the story of al-Qaeda, and demolishes the myths that underpin the ‘war on terror’.

He demonstrates the ‘al-Qaeda is merely a 2/5(1). The "War on Terror" is a conflict between good and evil, between the darkness and the light.

The only people who agree with this clumsy doomsday analysis are Osama bin Laden and his cronies in al Qaeda. The rest of us are left watching baffled as the Twin Towers collapse, Afghanistan is bombed, Iraq invaded, Israel and Palestine swamped in blood.

Not many reporters have firsthand experience of terrorist camps, but Burke, chief reporter for London's Observer, achieved it during the war in Afghanist.

Burke is convincing in his arguments that Al-Qaeda *the actual organisation* was never more than a hard-core of twenty or thirty militants, was not more than indirectly associated with many of the terrorist acts attributed to them, and was dispersed, incapacitated and in large part eliminated after the war in by:   Al-Qaeda: Casting a Shadow of Terror by Jason Burke pp, IB Tauris, £ Masterminds of Terror: The Truth Behind the Most Devastating Terrorist Attack the World Author: Giles Foden.
