American Betrayal


"This explosive book is a long-needed answer to court histories that continue to obscure key facts about our backstage war with Moscow. Must-reading for serious students of security issues and Cold War deceptions, both foreign and domestic."

-- M. Stanton Evans, author of Stalin's Secret Agents and Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against America's Enemies

"[West] only claims `to connect the dots,' which is a very modest description of the huge and brilliant work she has obviously done. ... It is not simply a good book about history. It is one of those books which makes history."

-- Vladimir Bukovsky, author of To Build a Castle and co-founder of the Soviet dissident movement, and Pavel Stroilov, author of Behind the Desert Storm.

"Every once in a while, something happens that turns a whole structure of preconceived ideas upside down, shattering tales and narratives long taken for granted, destroying prejudice, clearing space for new understanding to grow. Diana West's latest book, American Betrayal, is such an event."
-- Henrik Raeder Clausen, Europe News

"No book has ever frightened me as much as American Betrayal. ... It all adds up to a story so disturbing that it has changed my attitude to almost everything I think about how the world actually is."

-- Steven Kates, Quadrant

Her task is ambitious; her sweep of crucial but too-little-known facts of history is impressive; and her arguments are eloquent and witty. ... American Betrayal is one of those books that will change the way many of us see the world.

-- Susan Freis Falknor, Blue Ridge Forum

“What Diana West has done is to dynamite her way through several miles of bedrock. On the other side of the tunnel there is a vista of a new past. Of course folks are baffled. Few people have the capacity to take this in. Her book is among the most well documented I have ever read. It is written in an unusual style viewed from the perspective of the historian—but it probably couldn’t have been done any other way.”

-- Lars Hedegaard, historian, editor, Dispatch International

"Diana West's new book rewrites WWII and Cold War history not by disclosing secrets, but by illuminating facts that have been hidden in plain sight for decades. Furthermore, she integrates intelligence and political history in ways never done before."

-- Jeffrey Norwitz, former professor of counterterrorism, Naval War College

Diana West’s American Betrayal — a remarkable, novel-like work of sorely needed historical re-analysis — is punctuated by the Cassandra-like quality of “multi-temporal” awareness. ... But West, although passionate and direct, is able to convey her profoundly disturbing, multi-temporal narrative with cool brilliance, conjoining meticulous research, innovative assessment, evocative prose, and wit.

-- Andrew G. Bostom, PJ Media

Do not be dissuaded by the controversy that has erupted around this book which, if you insist on complete accuracy, would be characterized as a disinformation campaign.

-- Jed Babbin, The American Spectator

The most important anti-Communist book of our time.

-- J.R. Nyquist, contributor, And Reality Be Damned ... What Media Didn't Tell You about the End of the Cold War and the Fall of Communism in Europe

The polemics against your Betrayal have a familiar smell: The masters of the guild get angry when someone less worthy than they are ventures into the orchard in which only they are privileged to harvest. The harvest the outsider brought in, they ritually burn.

-- Hans Jansen, former professor of Islamic Thought, University of Utrecht 

West's lesson to Americans: Reality can't be redacted, buried, fabrictaed, falsified, or omitted. Her book is eloquent proof of it.

-- Edward Cline, Family Security Matters

In American Betrayal, Ms. West's well-established reputation for lacking "sacred cows" remains intact. The resulting beneficiaries are the readers, especially those who can deal with the truth.

-- Wes Vernon, Renew America

After reading American Betrayal and much of the vituperation generated by neconservative "consensus" historians, I conclude that we cannot ignore what West has demonstrated through evidence and cogent argument.

-- John Dale Dunn, M.D., J.D., Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons

Enlightening. I give American Betrayal five stars only because it is not possible to give it six.

-- John Dietrich, formerly of the Defense Intelligence Agency and author of The Morgenthau Plan: Soviet Influence on American Postwar Policy.

If you're looking for something to read, this is the most dazzling, mind-warping book I have read in a long time. It has been criticized by the folks at Front Page, but they don't quite get what Ms. West has set out to do and accomplished. I have a whole library of books on communism, but -- "Witness" excepted -- this may be the best.

-- Jack Cashill, author of Deconstructing Obama: The Lives, Loves and Letters of America's First Postmodern President and First Strike: TWA Flight 800 and the Attack on America

American Betrayal is a monumental achievement. Brilliant and important.

-- Monica Crowley, Fox News analyst, radio host and author of What the Bleep Just Happened: The Happy Warriors Guide to the Great American Comeback

"If you haven't read Diana West's "American Betrayal" yet, you're missing out on a terrific, real-life thriller."

-- Brad Thor, author of the New York Times bestsellers Hidden Order, Black List and The Last Patriot.

I just got a look at part of  an incendiary brochure produced by the Institute of Islamic Information and Education (Chicago, Illinois) that's being made available  to military prisoners at the US Disciplinary Barracks Prison at Fort Leavenworth. What is the III&E? Judging by this website, it's the prison-outreach arm of ISNA. And what is ISNA?

As Andrew  C. McCarthy has written:

ISNA was identified by the Justice Department at the Holy Land Foundation terrorism financing conspiracy trial as an unindicted co-conspirator. The defendants at that trial were convicted of funding Hamas to the tune of millions of dollars. This should have come as no surprise. ISNA is the Muslim Brotherhood’s umbrella entity for Islamist organizations in the United States. It was established in 1981 to enable Muslims in North America “to adopt Islam as a complete way of life” — i.e., to further the Brotherhood’s strategy of establishing enclaves in the West that are governed by sharia.

Meanwhile, the III&E brochure, which pushes anti-military, anti-government, anti-American attitudes,  is going out to Ft. Leavenworth military prisoners with a stamp of approval from the military's "Directorate of Pastoral Care."

Apparently it is considered "pastoral care" to enable Muslim Brotherhood types to preach Muslim-against-non-Muslim strife (jihad).

Here is an excerpt from the III&E brochure "Islam Jihad Terrorism"  that the US military chaplains have "reviewed and released" as religious literature.  

From the brochure:

The vast majority of majority of Muslims or Arabs have no association with the violent events around the world yet Islam is invoked with terrorism. It is unfair to the 1.2 billion Muslims of the world and religion of Islam.


Innocent until proven guilty in an open court is an accepted universal principle of justice along with liberty and freedom for all humankind.

Only not accepted for non-Muslims under sharia.

However, the U.S. failed to practice the same principle for those who are not U.S. nationals.

Operating term: "not U.S. nationals." Plus, enemy fighters are not citizen criminals.

Even worse, the U.S. is creating military tribunals for secret trials because there may be inadequate evidence to prove Arabs and Muslims guilty in open courts.

This is a destructive lie. It's not a paucity of evidence that drives the logic of military tribunals for jihadists seized on the  battlefield, but rather the nature of the evidence  much of which is classified and must be kept from the enemy as a matter of national security. In a military tribunal, a defense attorney with a security clearance may review such classified information but is not permitted to share it with the defendant. The III&E brochure continues:

The U.S. government has made the Muslims into multilevels [sic]when accusing them of terrorism: (a) White American Muslims are tried in open courts, (b) non-white American Muslims and similar persons become "enemy combatants" and belong to military dungeons, (c) foreign Muslims belong in animal cages as in Guantanamo Bay.

Incitement to racial war masquerading as religious literature. Conclusion:

May Allah bless us and purify us our hearts from all misunderstandings, malice, hate and anger.

All of which emanate from the US government.

Feel the love.

I guess military's Directorate of Pastoral Care does.

Are they nuts?
