A detailed but easy to follow accounting of a twenty-year disaster. Enraging but highly recommended.

Culled from “lessons learned” interviews with military and diplomatic folks, this is a catalog of repeated bad decisions, with billions of dollars and thousands of lives lost for essentially no purpose but to strengthen corruption in Afghanistan. It’s hard to be hopeful that things could have been much better even if we hadn’t jumped into a distracting war with Iraq, but maybe the waste would have been a little bit less.

The most depressing book I have listened to. Over and over there are "Lessons Learned Interviews“ that show repeated lies and corruption for the entire duration of the war.
Apparently" "No Lessons Have Been Learned" since the Vietnam War. Even the withdrawal was done for political reasons without taking into account the Army's careful planning and timing
