 ABOUT THE TITLE
The attacks of September 11 2001 were a calamity on a scale few had imagined possible. In their aftermath we often exaggerated the men who perpetrated them shaping hasty and often mistaken reporting into caricatures we could comprehend-monsters and master criminals equal to the enormity of their crimes. In reality the 9/11 hijackers and their cohorts were unexceptional men not much different from countless others. It is this enemy not the caricature that we must understand if we are to have a legitimate hope of defeating terrorism. The intent of this book is to uncover a better understanding of who the hijackers were and thereby why they did what they did. Perfect Soldiers traces these men s lives and the evolution of their beliefs putting a human face on heinous acts. Most of the hijackers were from apolitical and only mildly religious backgrounds. As they came of age though they were shaped by historical tides and their own circumstances evolving into devout pious Muslims. In fundamentalist Islam religion and politics are inseparable; they saw themselves as pilgrims soldiers of God. In the end this is a story about the power of belief to remake ordinary men. Matching unrivaled research undertaken in twenty countries on four continents with a voice that is engaging authoritative and thought-provoking Los Angeles Times correspondent Terry McDermott provides detailed portraits of the main players of the 9/11 plot including by far the most comprehensive study yet produced of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed the plan s mysterious engineer. With brilliant reporting and thoughtful analysis McDermott brings us a clearer more nuanced and in some ways more frightening understanding of the landmark event of our time.
