If you've already read Intelligence Matters by Bob Graham or have followed U.S. involvement in the Middle East at anything but an introductory level, you won't find anything new here. Like Intelligence Matters, America's Secret War is plagued by a dull narrator.
America's Secret War trots out the same picture of disparate U.S. intelligence agencies and goes on to lay out elements of U.S. involvement in the Middle East without providing enough context to really tie things together.
For a good political read full of drama, depth and detail, check out Charlie Wilson's War. After reading CWW, America's Secret War seemed boring and redundant.
