Synopsis of the Book
In the stunning novel, Hijacking of the American Presidency: Terrorists in the White House, a disaffected faction from the Evangelical Right, seeks to put its own man in the White House, allowing it the ability not only to control domestic as well as foreign policy, but also to launch a preemptive nuclear strike on nations believed to be the future enemies of America. To accomplish this they are prepared to assassinate major political figures, including the sitting president.
Disillusioned and fed up with what they consider the Twiddle-Dum, Twiddle-Dee syndrome of Washington politics, which has led to a never-ending dysfunctionality and the erosion of America’s ethical and moral foundation, this ultra-conservative splinter group has picked the perfect candidate for the White House.
This group is prepared to subvert the constitution of the United States and to assassinate anyone in its way to achieve what it perceives as its divine mandate.
In a plot that includes the manipulation of the nation’s leading scientists in Nano-technology, the subversives plan to deliver time-delayed poisons to the pilots of Airforce One two weeks before flying the president to a crucial Atomic Energy conference in Australia and anyone else who were in opposition.
Faced with such an unprecedented threat, the religious unit of the Department of Homeland Security Anti-Terrorism Task Force has been called on to thwart this threat. The unit is prepared to deploy the department’s secret weapon; the F-117ARW Remora, a recently perfected stealth aircraft capable of latching onto the underbelly of Airforce One and spiriting the Commander in Chief back to Washington without the conspirators becoming aware of the failure of that part of their plan.
This turned out to be a race against time with seconds to spare before the start of World War111.
