Summary

In the wake of the September 2008 financial crisis, politicians and pundits rushed to assign blame. Liberals pointed at greedy Wall Street bankers; conservatives pointed at perverse federal regulations. Democrats and Republicans blamed each other. But nobody blamed the true culprits: America's foreign enemies. So argues world-renowned economic warfare and financial terrorism expert Kevin D. Freeman in his shocking new book, Secret Weapon. In Secret Weapon, Freeman reveals how our nation's enemies-China, Iran, Russia, and the Arab States-are waging economic warfare on America by using our own financial infrastructure and systems against us. Sound fantastical? It's not, says both Freeman andthe Pentagon. After the September 2008 collapse, the Pentagon commissioned Freeman to investigate a possible link between recent economic events and financial terrorism. Citing Freeman's subsequent report, as well as foreign and economic evidence, Secret Weaponproves that not only was the September 2008 financial meltdown an act of terrorism, but part of a broader economic war against us. Secret Weaponalso reveals how vulnerable we are to another attack; and how we can protect ourselves. In this age of technology and globalization, Freeman's book shows how terrorism is no longer confined to bombs and planes, and how our enemies are using a new-and more dangerous-secret weapon against us.
