In Washington D.C., in the spring of 1993, it is the dawn of a new polical era--but six thousand miles away, in the impoverished streets of Baghdad, there is a growing disillusionment with the unelected president. Sensing the mood of the people, Saddam Hussein moves boldly to settle scores with the United States.
Using $100 million as bait, Saddam gathers into his web three key players; a powerful American Mafia boss; the world's greatest forger; and, most crucially, a special assistant to the President of tthe United States, Bill Clinton.
Saddam's goal is to embarrass the U.S. by stealing part of it's history--then destrying that symbol in front of the world's media. With the help of a sophisticated criminal underworld that exhibits Wsiss-watch timing, and a skilled actor who is transformed through plastic surgery into a stand-in for Bill Clinton, he sets about his brilliant schede.
As the countdown begins to July 4, 1993--potentially, the most humiliating day in U.S. history--two lovers, abeautiful Mossad agent and a dashing American professor who advises the CIA, turn out to be a far more formidable weapon that any Patriot missile.
