The Ultimatum


I would like to dedicate this book to the thousands of military and civilian personnel who work tirelessly every hour of every day in a desperate struggle to stay one step ahead of the fanatic Islamic radicals who strive to destroy our way of life and convert us to their highly structured and restrictive religion. The Department of Homeland Security, the National Security Agency, the CIA, and dozens of other intelligence agencies are all integral to thwarting attacks on Americans all over the world. Most of their work goes unheralded, and some of it is criticized as intrusive, but our freedom stands strong and we continue to enjoy one of the safest, richest, and coveted lifestyles in the world thanks to those working behind the scenes to protect us.

May God bless them all.

Jim Besaw
