Charlie Wilson’s War
I just finished reading “Charlie Wilson’s War” by George Crile (ISBN 0-8021-4124-2). What a hoot, an investigative report that reads like a spy novel. As I read, all I could think was only in Texas would you find the half bubble off plumb folks with the money and connections to pull off Charlie Wilson’s War. As good as the book is, more important it is a history of the CIA’s Afghanistan adventure and how it led to the blow back of 9/11. A must read that is fun, not a bad twofer.
