Summary

An insider’s tell-all account of one of the darkest chapters of the War on Terror: “A must-read for anyone trying to understand our post-9/11 world” (J. Malcolm Garcia, author of The Khaarijee).   The Convenient Terrorist is the definitive inside account of the capture, torture, and detention of Abu Zubaydah, the first “high-value target” captured by the CIA after 9/11. But was Abu Zubaydah, who is still being indefinitely held by the United States under shadowy circumstances, the blue-ribbon capture that the Bush White House claimed he was?   Authors John Kiriakou, who led the capture of Zubaydah and, years later, was prosecuted by the Obama administration for blowing the whistle on the CIA’s “enhanced interrogation” program, and Joseph Hickman, who took custody of incoming prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and wrote a book about the mysterious deaths of three Arab prisoners at the base, are uniquely qualified to shine a light on this disturbing case. They draw a far more complex portrait of the al-Qaeda “mastermind” and symbol of modern US torture. The one-time American collaborator became a “convenient terrorist”—a way for US authorities to sell their War on Terror to the American people.   “This disturbing book . . . should enlighten anyone who thinks that ‘1984’ did not arrive in the United States until the Age of Trump.” —Mark Crispin Miller, bestselling author of Fooled Again and The Bush Dyslexicon

    Omnec Onec's book "FROM VENUS I CAME" is a unique classic in spiritual literature. It's her autobiography in which she portrays her life on the astral level of Venus. In a very detailed and clear way, Omnec describes the surface, the society, the history, and the life on the astral dimension of Planet Venus. Additionally, Omnec speaks about the adventure of how and why she decided to manifest a physical body, and about her journey to Earth in 1955.
    FROM VENUS I CAME was first published by the US Col. and UFO Investigator Wendelle C. Stevens in 1991 in the USA. It was sold out very quickly.
    
    OMNEC ONEC: "As I was born on the Planet Venus in another dimension and came to your Planet as a young child, I was able to retain the knowledge and information that I had gathered as a Soul through many incarnations and life times. I can keep this information intact, and what I teach people is actually what I KNOW and not what I've read about or what I've heard, but what I have experienced through many different life cycles on Earth and in other dimensions." – "We came as Soul into the polar worlds for only one reason: To have the experiences which will lead us to becoming a conscious co-worker with the Supreme Deity – the REAL LOVE. Real Love is the energy that flows from the creator and supports all forms of life. Without it, nothing can exist. Therefore we are all universal beings and not limited to one existence. There are no limits to love."
