W ASHINGTON — Your average book- writing academic might be delighted to have a celebrity reader. Barry Cooper’s case is a little different. He’s far less gracious when asked about a famous person who apparently owned his book: “ If I had a chance to kill him,” the Canadian political scientist says, “ I would’ve.” His famous reader was supposedly Osama bin Laden. A newly declassified list from the U. S. government shows the terrorist leader had 39 English- language books in his Pakistani compound when he was killed by special forces in 2011. One of those books was written by Cooper. Bin Laden’s library apparently included the University of Calgary professor’s, New Political Religions, or an Analysis of Modern Terrorism . Cooper didn’t believe it when a journalist called him this week to share the news. He teaches political philosophy, not counterterrorism, and responded skeptically: “ I thought it was a hoax.” He has no idea whether bin Laden read the book, but he’s quite sure he wouldn’t have enjoyed its unsympathetic view of terrorism’s causes. “ I’m sure he didn’t like it if he did read it — I can take some comfort in that.” Cooper’s book argues terrorists intentionally distort religion to justify their acts — and they’re perfectly well aware they’re making up excuses. It examines a variety of groups beyond al- Qaida, including the Japanese group Aum Shinrikyo and what Cooper calls its off- the- wall interpretation of the Tibetan Book of the Dead . It also looks at white supremacists, and at how Hezbollah in the 1980s developed the concept of self- martyrdom — which Cooper calls as insane for a Muslim as a Catholic proclaiming himself a saint. Cooper says terrorists know their acts are morally and spiritually wrong. He likens them to Nazi prison guards who justified their actions by telling themselves their victims were less than human. He also downplays talk about root causes such as poverty. Nor does he give terrorists a pass on mental- health grounds. “ Terrorists are not crazy. They are evil,” Cooper says. “ They know what they are doing is wrong, but they’re able to tell themselves that it’s OK.” Bin Laden’s book collection ranged from mainstream authors, such as Bob Woodward’s book Obama’s Wars , to academics such as Yale’s Paul Kennedy and his Rise and Fall of the Great Powers ,” to more marginal conspiracy theorists such as Eustace Mullins’ Secrets of the Federal Reserve . Cooper’s book found in bin Laden’s library was one of about 30 the political scientist has written. He says it stemmed from a talk he gave in April 2001 in the U. S. After the 9/ 11 terrorist attacks, a colleague suggested he turn the lecture into a book. What does he hope bin Laden got from it? “ A little self- recognition of what a jerk he is.” — The Canadian Press Author’s book in terrorist’s collection Hopes bin Laden aware he was a ‘ jerk’ By Alexander Panetta ALBANY, N. Y. — More than 40 years after America’s bloodiest prison rebellion, newly released documents contain accounts, some never before seen publicly, from national guardsmen and a doctor who said they saw injured inmates beaten with clubs and others with wounds indicating they were tortured as state police and guards retook control of a prison in New York state. Three inmates and one guard died at the hands of prisoners in the riot and siege that ended Sept. 13, 1971. The 1,300 inmates who rioted over conditions and controlled part of the prison had clubs, knives and makeshift weapons and threatened to kill hostages. When state police and guards stormed the facility after negotiations stalled, they fatally shot 29 inmates and 10 hostages. The documents released Thursday, two years after New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman sought the disclosure, say several witnesses to brutal crimes against prisoners weren’t contacted or interviewed by investigators. They show apparent violent crimes by authorities, described by neutral witnesses, after police and guards fatally shot 29 inmates and 10 hostages and 1,300 inmates surrendered after their riot and five- day standoff at the maximum- security prison in Attica, New York. Such abuses have long been alleged by prisoners and their families, and the witness accounts lend credence to their arguments. A 1975 report by Judge Bernard Meyer concluded there was no intentional coverup, only serious errors in judgment and omissions in evidence gathered by troopers. He also noted an imbalance in the ensuing prosecution: More than five dozen prisoners and just one state trooper were indicted. That conclusion, contained in the 570- page report’s first volume, has been public for 40 years. The 46 pages detailing some of the factual basis for Meyer’s findings were released Thursday. Another 350 pages remain sealed because they contained grand jury testimony, which by law is generally kept secret to protect the privacy of witnesses and investigation targets. A judge refused last year to make an exception to release those pages for the public and historical Attica record. “ Today, we are shining a light on one of the darkest chapters of our history,” said Marty Mack, executive deputy state attorney general. This release might bring families of the victims nearer to closure and help Americans learn from what happened, he said. Michael Smith, a corrections officer taken hostage in the riot and shot when the prison was stormed by police, said Thursday that so much was redacted there isn’t much new, and significant information is still being suppressed. “ The truth will all come out someday but I don’t know if anybody’s going to be alive who was involved in the event,” he said. — The Associated Press Inmates beaten when police stormed Attica after 1971 riot: documents A_ 21_ May- 22- 15_ FP_ 01. indd A17 5/ 21/ 15 9: 29: 04 PM
