Ruff, Matt  
The Mirage
11/9/2001: Christian fundamentalists hijack four jetliners. They fly two into the Tigris & Euphrates World Trade Towers in Baghdad, and a third into the Arab Defense Ministry in Riyadh. The fourth plane, believed to be bound for Mecca, is brought down by its passengers. The United Arab States declare a War on Terror. Arabian and Persian troops invade the eastern seaboard of the US and establish a Green Zone in Washington, DC. 2009: Mustafa, an Arab Homeland Security agent, interrogates a captured suicide bomber, who claims that the world they are living in is a mirage - in the real world, the US is the superpower, not the Arab states. A search of the bomber's apartment turns up a copy of the New York Times dated September 12, 2011, that appears to support his claim. Other captured terrorists have been telling the same story. The president wants answers, but Mustafa discovers he's not the only interested party - gangster Saddam Hussein is conducting his own investigation. And the head of the Senate Intelligence Committee - war hero Osama bin Laden - will stop at nothing to hide the truth.
