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.

There's clear points in this audiobook where the narrator's voice is cut off. The audio editing could have been better in that regard.

But the content of this book is fantastic, a must read! (Or listen)
