Chertoff Press Conference -- Subliminal Nazi Fear-Mongering?

Check out this clip from my local news station, in which Michal Chertoff ludicrously trumpets his "gut feeling" about an impending Al-Qaida strike:

Chertoff Has "Gut Feeling" Al-Qaida Will Strike

A perceptive friend of mine pointed out the spine of one of the books on the shelf behind Chertoff. He paused the video and I took some shots with my phone.

And a closeup:

Some subliminal Nazi fear-mongering, or just a coincidence?

Can someone identify the actual book in question, based on its size, color, and the position of that swastika emblem? I doubt that it was deliberately put there for effect - I think it is an indication of what Chertoff has been reading. He's been reading something about the Nazis. The question is, specifically what, and what is the book in question's attitude toward its subject?

It look's like it could be William Shirer's "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich." It's a relatively thick black book with a swastika on the spine.

Yes, that looks like "Rise and Fall of the Third Reich," which is an objective and historical account of the Nazi party and WWII, not any kind of Nazi propaganda.

Agreed. But I still think it's possible the book was put there -- in the camera's range -- to act as a subliminal kicker to the message of "terrorists are evil and will kill you."
