    The explosive first-hand account of America's secret history in Afghanistan. With the publication of Ghost Wars, Steve Coll became not only a Pulitzer Prize winner, but also the expert on the rise of the Taliban, the emergence of Bin Laden, and the secret efforts by CIA officers and their agents to capture or kill Bin Laden in Afghanistan after 1998.

    Story
    What did you love best about Ghost Wars?

    How well it covered the subjects promised in the subtitle.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghost Wars?

    It's not that kind of book. There are sequences where some of the operator's exploits are described, but mainly it is a steady, factual account of the players and events through this moment of history.


    Have you listened to any of Malcolm Hillgartner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Only the realization that through the abdication of our oversight of how weapons and materiel were being used to the ISI, and how Saudi Arabia was funding the brainwashing of a jihadi fighting force, we fertilized the ground for our enemies to grow against us.
