Whose side are they on?
Diplomacy is one thing. But giving aid and comfort to the enemy is quite another. Yet that is exactly what our very own State Department is doing -coddling brutal dictators, covering up gaping holes in our nation's safety net, and appeasing regimes that actively sponsor terrorists around the world. In this global war on terrorism, the U.S. State Department has proven itself to be one of our biggest obstacles to victory.
In Dangerous Diplomacy, investigative reporter Joel Mowbray exposes the hidden agendas, mixed allegiances, and outright anti-Americanism that has infected the U.S. State Department. Relying on exhaustive interviews with State Department personnel and extensive research into State's publications, procedures, and recent history, Mowbray reveals an astounding pattern of shortsighted and misguided policies, compounded by an ingrained resistance to self-criticism and correction.
Mowbray documents a State Department in dire need of reform - revealing here for the first time just how far State has strayed from its intended role as the primary agent of U.S. interests abroad.
What disappointed you about Dangerous Diplomacy: How the State Department Threatens America's Security?
The readers intonation was terrible. It was impossible to tell the difference between a quote and a statement. In addition, his tone was like someone reading to a kid, which contradicts the serious tenor of this nonfiction book.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Don't know. I think I'll read a book. This is my 3 rd disappointment since I re-upped.
How could the performance have been better?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dangerous Diplomacy: How the State Department Threatens America's Security?
Don't know. Didn't listen long enough.
