The Fight of Our Lives by William J. Bennet & Seth Leibsohn

This is a well researched book about how America's views about radical Islam have gone from justified anger of 9/11 to a highly tolerant and even apologetic manner towards all of Islam, including radical. The book details events such as Fort Hood masacre by Nidal Hassan, who proclaimed extremist Islamic views. Despite the warning signs and complaints against Hassan, Hassan was left to continue serving in the military while spewing radical Islam. There were plenty of warning signs as the authors point out that were ignored. Why were the warning signs ignored? Politcal correctness and religious tolerance has devolved America'a justified anger toward radical Islam into appeasement in all forms of Islam.

The facts in the book are backed up with endnotes, making it authentic and something that certainly should be taken seriously by Americans. The authors are very brave and pull no punches in citing incidents of poor judgement by American leaders who are more attuned to appeasement and political correctness than the real lurking dangers. The author's research into the Fort Hood masacre set the tone for this must read book. America is in serious danger if our leaders continue to choose to ignore warning signs of radical Islam that have and can continue to errupt into terrorism and slaughter.

I liked this book becaause it demonstrates just how America's views have drastically changed over the past ten years. It is an eye opener and every American should read this book. I hope our leaders certainly read it.
