Description

"America in the CrossHairs" is a bold and timely warning of an America only hours away from destruction. Speculation that Islamic terrorists might sneak nuclear weapons into the United States has given way to reality. The problems begin on Inauguration Day for President Virginia Clausen, as terrorists begin blackmailing America. Nuclear powers join with the terrorists, demanding America's capitulation. When a suicide bombing hits Washington, D.C., Americans begin fleeing the cities. President Clausen escapes aboard Air Force One; the Secretary of Defense hurriedly moves his Pentagon Crisis Team to the National Airborne Operations Center. Using teleconferencing, President Clausen and her National Security Council meet throughout the night. However, time is running out and they remain at odds over what to do-Surrender or go to war? "A story more probable than fiction, CrossHairs holds the reader to the very end.and what an ending! Paul Barber reveals just how close and how real the enemies of America are. An intriguing novel saturated with deep insight into those bent on destroying our nation." ***** W. Langston Kerr, Ph.D., Professor and Dean, College of Education, Stephen F.Austin State University "CrossHairs is a riveting tale of modern American defense. Barber's 'insider' understanding of how the nation remains alert will keep you up late turning the pages." ***** Archie P. McDonald, Ph.D., Professor of History, Stephen F. Austin State University. Author of, Texas: A Compact History, and others. "CrossHairs, a superb installment in the political apocalypse genre, is sure to strike fear and controversy among 9/11 readers. Barber's experiences guarantee credibility as he explores the depths of catastrophe possible." ***** Sue B. Whatley, Ph.D., Professor of English, Stephen F. Austin State University.
