3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In February 1989, the CIA's chief in Islamabad famously cabled headquartersa simple message: ""We Won."" It was an understated coda to the most successfulcovert intelligence operation in American history. In What We Won, CIA and National Security Council veteran Bruce Riedel tells the story of America's secret war in Afghanistan and the defeat of the Soviet 40th Red Army in the war that proved to be the final battle of the cold war. He seeks to answer one simple question-why did this intelligence operation succeed so brilliantly?Riedel has the vantage point few others can offer: He was ensconc
JFK's forgotten crisis : Tibet, the CIA, and Sino-Indian War by Bruce O Riedel( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bruce Riedel provides new perspective and insights over Kennedy?s forgotten crisis in the most dangerous days of the cold war. The Cuban Missile Crisis defined the presidency of John F. Kennedy. But the same week the world stood transfixed by the possibility of nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union, Kennedy was also consumed by a war that has escaped history?s attention, yet still reverberates significantly today: the Sino-Indian conflict. As well-armed and equipped troops from the People?s Republic of China surged into Indian-held territory in October 1962, Kennedy ordered an emergency airlift of supplies to the Indian army. At the same time, he engaged in diplomatic talks that kept the neighboring Pakistanis out of the fighting. The conflict came to an end with a unilateral Chinese cease-fire, relieving Kennedy of a decision to intervene militarily in support of India. Bruce Riedel, a CIA and National Security Council veteran, provides the first full narrative of this crisis, which played out during the tense negotiations with Moscow over Cuba. He also includes another, nearly forgotten episode of US espionage during the war between India and China: covert US support of Tibetan opposition to Chinese occupation of Tibet. He details how the United States, beginning in 1957, trained and parachuted Tibetan guerrillas into Tibet to fight Chinese military forces. The covert operation to help precipitate the conflict but the United States did not end its support of it until relations between the United States and China were normalized in the 1970s. Riedel tells this story of war, diplomacy, and covert action with authority and perspective. He draws on newly declassified letters between Kennedy and Indian leader Jawaharlal Nehru along with the diaries and memoirs of key players and other sources make this the definitive account of JFK?s forgotten crisis. This is, Riedel writes, Kennedy's finest hour as you have never read it before." -- from the publisher's website

6 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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.

Using a broad array of sources, including interviews with top-level U.S. officials at every level of the war effort, Barzilai concludes that the failure to kill bin Laden and destroy al Qaeda at the Battle of Tora Bora was not only the result of a failure in tactics but, more importantly, the product of failures in policy and leadership
Obama's war : prospects for the conflict in Afghanistan and Pakistan by Bruce O Riedel( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
