    Story
    (307)

    From Afghanistan and Pakistan to Yemen, Somalia, and beyond, Scahill speaks to the CIA agents, mercenaries, and elite Special Operations Forces operators who populate the dark side of American war-fighting. He goes deep into al Qaeda-held territory in Yemen and walks the streets of Mogadishu with CIA-backed warlords. We also meet the survivors of US night raids and drone strikes - including families of US citizens targeted for assassination by their own government - who reveal the human consequences of the dirty wars the United States struggles to keep hidden.

    What was most disappointing about Jeremy Scahill’s story?

    I’ve been in the intelligence community for over 13 years now, including several deployments with special operations units, and this book is terrible. It’s wildly inaccurate and misleading. A simple google search or Wikipedia article could debunk most of the premises in this book.

  • American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon

    Steven Rinella won a lottery to hunt for a wild buffalo in the Alaskan wilderness. One of only four hunters that year who succeeded in killing a buffalo, he carried the carcass down a snow-covered mountainside and floated it four miles down a white-water canyon while being trailed by grizzly bears and suffering from hypothermia. Rinella found himself contemplating his own place among the 14,000 years' worth of buffalo hunters in North America and the place of the buffalo in the American consciousness.

    Would you consider the audio edition of American Buffalo to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version, but the audio version was excellent.

    The hunt and the history.
