    The American military is a tightly sealed community, and few outsiders have reason to know that a great many senior officers view the Iraq war with incredulity and dismay. But many officers have shared their anger with renowned military reporter Thomas E. Ricks, and in Fiasco, Ricks combines these astonishing on-the-record military accounts with his own extraordinary on-the-ground reportage to create a spellbinding account of an epic disaster.

    Scott says: "History not Politics"
    "The only F word to describe the current situation"
    Overall

    The tile of my review is not mine, it is a quote from the author's interview from "The Daily Show". This is a must read book for anyone who is interested in the current state of affairs. I was hoping the author would divulge the motives for the individuals involved in the decision making. The author hinted to the personal motives for the individuals involved, but never clearly stated it. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this book and it is definitely one I would listen to again in few years when the dust settles.

    Penny says: "The Agenda is Clear"
    "1% Doctrine, an eye opening book"
    Overall

    This book sheds some light on the thinking mentality of decision makers. To act with such resolute based on 1% chance is scary. In essence, a court of law could sentence someone with just 2 out of 12 jurors entering a guilty plea. While that is not the current state of affairs remember neither was the 1% doctrine.
