    Dubbed by Barron's as "The Shadow CIA", Stratfor, George Friedman's global intelligence company, has provided analysis to Fortune 500 companies, news outlets, and even the U.S. government. Now Friedman delivers the geopolitical story that the mainstream media has been unable to uncover, the startling truth behind America's foreign policy and war effort in Afghanistan, Iraq, and beyond.

    "America's Secret War"
    Overall

    Not bad if you want someone else to think for you. The position of the author is that we are really good but our government intellegence is designed very poorly but we are still winning. This is another attempt to support everything that our government has said and done, even at the cost of the truth. Having said that, it is probably one of the better attempts at explaining the unexplainable, but at the end it is still one more book saying everything we have done is for the benifit of the world and we should be proud. Oh, and by the way don't ask too many questions.
    You might want to save your credit for something a bit better.

    Story

    This book tells the story, for the first time, of the United States government's response to Guevara's ill-starred insurgency in Bolivia in 1967. Henry Butterfield Ryan argues that Guevara's life must be re-evaluated in light of secret documents only recently released by the CIA, the State Department, the Pentagon, and the National Security Council.

    Not worth your time. The author claims poverty in a far too lengthy introduction and then preceeds to tell the story as the US goverment would have you see it. There is more character development of actors that had nothing to do with the account than with the major players. My guess is that Mr. Ryan got paid on the side to write this.

    Story

    From two of the country's arch-neoconservatives, a Bush speechwriter and the influential Chairman of the Defense Policy Board, comes a new book of policy on how to strengthen America. Frum and Perle allege that despite the American conquest of Iraq, Americans are not very safe in the world around them, and that the U.S. government remains unready to defend its people.

    Danioton says: "Excellent Analysis of America's Options"
    "An End to Honesty"
    Overall

    I had to listen to this to see if Richard Perle was as crazy as I thought he was. No question, the man needs a straight jacket. Worth the listen to understand that the NeoCons are as dangerous and stupid as they seem.
