    When President Barack Obama ordered the surge of troops and aid to Afghanistan, Washington Post correspondent Rajiv Chandrasekaran followed. He found the effort sabotaged not only by Afghan and Pakistani malfeasance, but by infighting and incompetence within the American government: a war cabinet arrested by vicious bickering among top national security aides; diplomats and aid workers who failed to deliver on their grand promises; and generals who dispatched troops to the wrong places.

    Would you try another book from Rajiv Chandrasekaran and/or Rajiv Chandrasekaran?

    Never


    What was most disappointing about Rajiv Chandrasekaran’s story?

    It is a political puff piece about how great Obama is and how every war decision Bush made was bad.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rajiv Chandrasekaran’s performances?

    No


    What character would you cut from Little America?

    The author


    Any additional comments?

    I wish this book had been what I thought it was going to be. A history of the Afghanistan war. Instead, it is a political love fest for Obama written by a reporter. Apparently, Obama has never made a bad decision about war. Please. It gets so old listening to the blame Bush tirade. This is such a shallow "history" and can't possibly be unbiased. I don't want political ideology in my history books.
