Since the Clinton Administration when the CIA and Unocal financed and armed the Taliban [and by extension, al Qaeda], to the present, when the US government's // war on terror \\ strategy consists of attacking the enemies of al Qaeda in Yemen, and supporting al Qaeda factions in Libya and Syria, we have witnessed an almost endless number of books on Afghanistan - - a serious lost cause - - and Iraq, predominantly in the hands of ISIS! What's wrong with this picture? Who are these professional military and CIA losers who continue to publish books about their // great deeds \\ in these lost countries? And most of all, who cares, given the corruption and billionaires in Afghanistan and Iraq, thanks to those missing billions and billions of dollars the Pentagon and State Department cannot account for? ? ? ?
