INTELWIRE Sourcebooks: Ali Mohamed, Benevolence International and More
Intelwire Books: The Sources The Pros Use
INTELWIRE has launched the INTELWIRE Sourcebook Series -- collections of documents, court records and exclusive material that put news sources in your hands. Ideal for professionals seeking to fact-check stories and books, or for involved terrorism readers who want to get their information straight from the souce, INTELWIRE Sourcebooks provide professional research products at a price anyone can afford.
All collections are selected and compiled by INTELWIRE's J.M. Berger, a reporter and researcher who has covered terrorism for National Public Radio and the National Geographic Channel. INTELWIRE is offering three pilot books in the series.
The Siege At Mecca contains more than 200 pages of declassified State Department documents concerning the 1979 attack on the Grand Mosque by Saudi militants. Collected in a spiral bound volume for the first time anywhere, these documents contain new and never-reported intelligence on the siege, as well as possible links to Osama bin Laden and a religious sect that would later become a significant player in al Qaeda. The Siege At Mecca contains unique information that is unavailable from any other source. Table of contents and introduction || Buy the Book
The Ali Mohamed Sourcebook offers an unparalleled glimpse at the primary sources on al Qaeda's most dangerous sleeper agent. Mohamed infiltrated the U.S. Army and engaged in shady dealings with the CIA, the FBI and the Justice Department. All this and more is documented in more than 400 pages of court records, transcripts, government documents and exclusive analysis. Due to the web of deceptions and government secrecy surrounding this figure, existing reports on Mohamed are often incomplete or incorrect. Get the most important evidence on the man who trained Osama bin Laden himself. Table of contents and introduction || Buy the Book
The Benevolence International Foundation Sourcebook is a document of incredible scope. The Benevolence Foundation (BIF) was a key charity front used by al Qaeda from its very earliest days. The first in a planned series of volumes covering al Qaeda's use of non-governmental organizations and charities to launder money, the BIF Sourcebook documents al Qaeda's formative years in amazing detail -- even including the minutes of the first al Qaeda meeting as recorded by one of the terror network's founders, in both English and the original Arabic. This book contains extensive documentation that has never been published anywhere. Table of contents and introduction || Buy the Book

"...smart, granular analysis..."ISIS: The State of Terror
"Jessica Stern and J.M. Berger's new book, "ISIS," should be required reading for every politician and policymaker... Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post

"...a timely warning..."Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go to War in the Name of Islam:
"At a time when some politicians and pundits blur the line between Islam and terrorism, Berger, who knows this subject far better than the demagogues, sharply cautions against vilifying Muslim Americans. ... It is a timely warning from an expert who has not lost his perspective." -- New York Times
