Summary From the controversial terrorism expert who brought Iran's nuclear program to the world's attention in 2002 comes an exposé of the inner workings and plans of Iran's mullahs. With access to dissident groups inside Iran, Jafarzadeh traces President Ahmadinejad's radical roots and involvement in terror attacks to his impact on Iran's weapons program. He reveals new details on Iran's meddling in Iraq and its broader goals for the future of the Middle East. Readers will learn about: Ahmadinejad's radical past as a torturer of political prisoners; his zealous mission to deliver the regime its first nuclear bomb; the military's increasing control of the nuclear program; how Ahmadinejad was handpicked by Iran's mullahs to help create an Islamic Republic in Iraq; covert actions to bury nuclear facilities in tunnels; the front companies Iran used to buy its nuclear technology undetected; the author's policy options to end the Iranian threat.--From publisher description
