The Looming Tower - Al Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 - Lawrence Wright - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Looming Tower:

The events leading up to 9/11.

My favorite quote about 9/11:

"If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate."

Sandy Dahl
(Wife of Flight 93 Pilot Jason Dahl)

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Does the "why" make any sense to you?

Do you remember?

My review of the book The Looming Tower:

Even after reading, Jihad makes no sense to me.

I have never been so disappointed in bureaucracy.

I will always remember.
