Summary
The "first" Afghan War, the CIA's response to 9/11, was approved by President Bush and directed by Robert Grenier, the CIA station chief in Islamabad. Forging separate alliances with warlords, Taliban dissidents, and Pakistani intelligence, Grenier defeated the Taliban and put Hamid Karzai in power in eighty-eight days. Later, as head of CIA counterterrorism, he watches as bureaucratic dysfunction in the CIA, Pentagon, and White House lead to failure in Iraq and Afghanistan. In his gripping narrative we meet General Tommy Franks, who bridles at CIA control of "his" war; General "Jafar Amin, " a Pakistani intelligence officer who saves Grenier from committing career suicide; Maleeha Lodhi, Pakistan's brilliant ambassador to the US; "Mark, " the CIA operator who guides Gul Agha Shirzai to bloody victory over the Taliban; General Kayani, who will become the most powerful man in Pakistan; and Hamid Karzai, the puzzling anti-Taliban insurgent. We also come to realize that Grenier's enemies out in front prove only slightly more lethal than those behind his own lines
