Jim Hoagland, Washington Post, Column (10-12-1994) "The Yassin case and Iraq's potential involvement in the World Trade Center blast have been pursued more diligently by Laurie Mylroie, a perceptive analyst and writer on Iraq, than by the U.S. government."
Jim Fox, Director of FBI-NY, Letter (10-24-1994) "This work is the most comprehensive and best researched review of the bombing investigation."
Vincent Cannistraro, former CIA Chief of Counterterrorism, Letter (11-1-1994) "Laurie Mylroie’s manuscript on the World Trade Center bombing is one of the most brilliant pieces of research and scholarship in this area that I have ever read."
Bob Miller, recently retired from DIA, Letter (2-28-95) "Bravo. Keep up the good work."
Jane's Intelligence Review, Book Review (8-1-1995) "Study of Revenge . . . is more than a tale of how a disaster did not happen; it is an important warning about the future of state-sponsored terrorism and about how inadequate our institutions are to deal with it."
New York Post, Editorial (1-22-1996) "An important article by Middle East expert Laurie Mylroie . . . [suggests] that the strategy the U.S. is using to combat terror may not be adequate to ensure American security."
Washington Monthly, Journalism Award (for National Interest article; March 1996) "Mylroie . . . found that lack of coordination between the Justice Department and national security agencies means that national security gets short shrift in dealing with domestic terrorism."
A.M. Rosenthal, Washington Times, Column (9-18-00) "Laurie Mylroie, one of America's leading experts on Iraq . . . explains why in fascinating detail that the attacks are part of ongoing warfare by terrorism conducted by Saddam against the U.S. since the invasion of Kuwait. There is a mountain of information about Saddam and his ways in this book."
Forward, Book Review (11-24-00) "[A] minutely detailed and disturbing book. . . argues convincingly that Iraq was behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing."
Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Book Review (1-14-01) "Blaming terrorism on loose networks of extremists may provide an excuse for inaction. But failure to take action against the real culprits puts the lives of tens of thousands of Americans at risk."
Jerusalem Post, Book Review; Interview (2-23-01) "This book is an important contribution to understanding the menacing regime in Baghdad."
Alexander Rose, National Post, Column (5-1-01) "[M]ost perceptive book on terrorism in years"
Air Power History, Book Review (Summer 2001) "Study of Revenge reads well and it sets a new high standard for investigative literature. It is the product of thorough and painstaking research, and its conclusions are sobering."
Los Angeles Times, Book Review (10-11-2001) “'Study of Revenge' is a compelling book . . . Though U.S. leaders from the president on down have attributed the Sept. 11 attacks to terrorist networks led by Bin Laden and have directed the first phase of the war on terrorism against him, it is most likely that the targets will widen. . . . It is not inconceivable that the probe into the events of Sept. 11 will also go through various phases of discovery and new views may come to predominate. Mylroie’s view may have its day, perhaps as likely as not."
Washington Post, "Expert's Pick" (10-21-2001) Mylroie "argues that the Clinton administration's theory about a loose network of terrorists without state sponsor or identifiable political objectives other than the destruction of America is flawed."
Wall Street Journal, Book Review (10-24-2001) "To address the state-sponsorship question there is no better place to look than Study of Revenge."
New York Times, Book Review (11-25-2001) "Mylroie's research challenges the widespread belief that rogue networks of terrorists run by Islamic radicals like Osama bin Laden work without state sponsorship."
Observer, Book Review (1-13-2002) "Mylroie's conclusion, reached by relentless forensic analysis of a huge array of human and documentary sources, is that the 1993 World Trade Center bombing did not, as the Clinton administration claimed at the time, signal the emergence of a 'new kind of terrorism' by 'loose networks' of Muslim extremists."
Sunday Telegraph, Book Review (2-24-2002) "Mylroie provides compelling arguments not only that Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind behind the bombing, was an Iraqi agent, but that Saddam Hussein actively encouraged the bombers to implement their diabolical plan."
