    In The Longest War, Peter Bergen offers a comprehensive history of this war and its evolution, from the strategies devised in the wake of the 9/11 attacks to the fighting in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and beyond. Weaving together internal documents from al-Qaeda and the U.S. offices of counterterrorism, first-person interviews with top-level jihadists and senior Washington officials, along with his own experiences on the ground in the Middle East, Bergen balances the accounts of each side.

    Jeffrey Dame says: "very good, completes the picture - take a listen"
    "Just a polemic"
    Overall

    The author bends over backward to place all blame on a still forming administration that had been in office less than 8 months yet absolves the previous administration completely. I should have know that if the New York Times liked it the book was bound to be fatally flawed.
