Kiriakou takes listeners into the fight against an enemy fueled by fanaticism. He chillingly describes what it was like inside the CIA headquarters on the morning of 9/11, the agency leaders who stepped up and those who protected their careers. And in what may be the book's most shocking revelation, he describes how the White House made plans to invade Iraq a full year before the CIA knew about it--or could attempt to stop it
Obama's war prospects for the conflict in Afghanistan and Pakistan by Bruce O Riedel ( )
2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
President Obama inherited a war in Afghanistan that was unsuccessful, under-funded and lacked a clearly defined strategy. The response he developed for Afghanistan is a complex one involving regional and international policies - particularly in Pakistan, where al-Qaeda has a network of insurgent groups - but it also involves military force, diplomacy and changing public opinion concerning the US. This paper assesses the progress that Obama has made in Afghanistan and Pakistan 15 months after taking office, and considers whether the US will actually be able win the war on terror

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The other war winning and losing in Afghanistan by Ronald E Neumann ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the bloodshed in Iraq intensified in 2005, Afghanistan quickly faded from the nation's front pages to become the "other war," supposedly going well and largely ignored. In fact, the insurgency in Afghanistan was about to break out with renewed force, the drug problem was worsening, and international coordination was losing focus. That July, Ronald Neumann arrived in Kabul from Baghdad as the U.S. ambassador, bringing the experience of a career diplomat whose professional lifetime had been spent in the greater Middle East, beginning thirty-eight years earlier in the same country in which it ended, Afghanistan. Neumann's account of how the war in Afghanistan unfolded over the next two years is rich with heretofore unexamined details of operations, tensions, and policy decisions. He demonstrates why the United States was slow to recognize the challenge it faced and why it failed to make the requisite commitment of economic, military, and civilian resources. His account provides a new understanding of problems of alliance warfare in conducting simultaneous nation-building and counterinsurgency. Honest in recounting failures as well as successes, the book is must reading for students of international affairs who want to understand the reality of diplomatic policymaking and implementation in the field as for those who want to understand the nation's complex "other war."--Publisher's description

U.S.-China relations seeking strategic convergence in Pakistan by Bruce O Riedel ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This paper focuses on the parallel development of the political, economic and security relationships between China and Pakistan, and the United States and Pakistan. It reviews the origins of those relationships and explains why Beijing, Islamabad and Washington have proved unable to cooperate in the past to achieve measurable security gains. It then analyzes the deteriorating situation in Pakistan today and highlights both the American and the Chinese interest in sustaining a stable Pakistan. This assessment is followed by recommendations on how the three countries can come together to achieve short-term security goals in Pakistan. Finally, it examines the prospects for achieving structural changes that can bring enduring peace to South Asia -- p.2
