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

5 out of 5 stars

Great book, I listened to it twice. At first I thought this guy must be a Democrat, then later in the book, I thought, no he is a Republican. Then I realized that he is a fact finder and a seeker of the truth. If only half of what he writes is true, we Americans need to pay more attention to what our leaders say and speak up sooner rather than later if what they say can't be backed up with facts. Look at the impact that the 911 families had on policy. Yes, speaking up can make a difference; but we must pay attention all of the time.
