"We have known Kenneth Timmerman over the years as an courageous advocate of the truth. Whether he was exposing the export of sensitive military technology to Communist China in the teeth of administration opposition, or tracking Islamic terrorist Osama Bin Laden around the world for Reader's Digest, Kenneth Timmerman has demonstrated the courage and good judgment that one expects to find in a United States Senator."

During this time, I learned more about corruption than I ever would have believed possible. For the first time in American history we had a President of the United States who took money from the head of a foreign intelligence service.

"I have followed for some time your excellent reporting on the Mid-East, especially Iran. You consistently provide insights and facts nowhere else available to the public. Your professionalism and persistence make a great contribution to our understanding, to the public debate, andultimately to our national security."
R. James Woolsey, former director, Central Intelligence Agency

"Kenneth Timmerman has been tireless in unearthing the facts about the diversion of technology from legitimate commercial purposes to the dangerous military programs of states and organizations hostile to the United States and its allies. For this effort, reflected in a prolific output of articles, testimony, memoranda, and the like, he deserves the gratitude of all of us."
