    Directorate S PDF ½ ↠ ePUB ukrbank.pro directorate mobile, Directorate S EpubDirectorate S is the gripping seuel to Steve Coll's Pulitzer winning Ghost Wars about the longest war in American history the war in Afghanistan The first book stopped on 10 September 2001 whereas this book picks up right as the World Trade Center towers are struck and chaos erupts As in Ghost Wars the research is astounding and the narrative both interesting and captivating The author seeks to explain why America got into this uagmire and why it has lasted from the aftermath of the Al aeda attack on 911 to the present It is the story of lethal drones contract killersmercenaries Pakistani duplicity Afghani chaos and overall confusion as to goals and means to achieve them Particularly moving and powerful were the depictions of an innocent Afghan victim of the random arrests and interr

    Directorate S PDF ½ ↠ ePUB ukrbank.pro directorate mobile, Directorate S EpubReading Ghost Wars many years ago provided a great background education on the history of the US War on Terror This book is billed as a continuation of that history focused primarily on the conflicts in Afghanistan and Pakistan that began in 2001 Directorate S aims to be a definitive narrative of that period and as such covers a lot of ground running to over 700 pages that cover everything from top level political negotiations to accounts of ground level combat in specific theaters of the Afghan war For those who have been following the wars in the region a lot of what is documented in the book will be familiar But what Coll manages to do is flesh out background about key episodes of political intrigue during the war through interviews with the high ranking officials whom he has access to Among the best parts of the book were the behind the scenes insights into negotiations between the Taliban and the United States as well as the Pakistani and Afghan governments Th

    Directorate S PDF ½ ↠ ePUB ukrbank.pro directorate mobile, Directorate S EpubI wanted to like this book I heard great things about Steve Coll and his last book Ghost Wars that won him Pulitzer award I grew up with War on Terror raging first in Afghanistan and then in my own country Pakistan so it was natural for me to be curious about it What happened and what I should assume about the future? I wanted to seek some answers Did it provide the answers? Sometimes yes; sometimes no Overall it was underwhelmingGeorge Orwell's collection of essays title is called All art is propaganda It is uite apt With fiction it is easy to tell what the story is trying to sell; with nonfiction however it is complicated especially when Steve Coll writes it He I noticed is a great writer But he is not unbiased he does not write to present all sides as he claims

    Directorate S PDF ½ ↠ ePUB ukrbank.pro directorate mobile, Directorate S EpubUgh I'm finally finished with this book 2 stars feels too harsh for such an epic effort but I also don't think it really deserves 3 full stars At nearly 700 pages spanning 15 years I feel the book lost the forest for the trees to some degree Jam packed with names personages add in the alphabet soup of government offices NSF NSC ISI ISAF military terms APOBS MICLICs etc journalistically sound I found it a little lacking in analytic depth And than a few grammatically problematic passages that detracted from whatever point that was trying to be made Page 665 for example Yet America did not fight alone or for cynical again Huh???

    Directorate S PDF ½ ↠ ePUB ukrbank.pro directorate mobile, Directorate S EpubA vivid well researched and painful history of US involvement in Afghanistan and Pakistan from 2001 to 2016 picking up where Coll left off in Ghost WarsMuch of the story is built around CIA’s relationship with ISI but Coll clearly describes the policy decisions made and implemented by the US government the military and the intelligence community; how these decisions affected US relations with Pakistan and the course of America's longest war; how views on Pakistan’s reliability and duplicity evolved; how the Pakistanis backed the Taliban in Afghanistan; how the Pakistani Taliban emerged despite ISI’s illusions of being able to control them; the ups and downs of American engagement with the government in Kabul; how the Ira War led to less American attention and resources being spent in Central Asia; the ever shifting attitude of American policymakers to negotiations w

    Directorate S PDF ½ ↠ ePUB ukrbank.pro directorate mobile, Directorate S EpubA must read if one wishes to begin to understand our entanglement in the longest war in our history The author has done meticulous research and had access to the real players both Americans and overseas The title refers to the Pakistani Intelligence Agency and that is a big part of the story how the loyalties of many involved are divided or even the opposite of what they proclaimIf anyone has a desire to go beyond jingoism and sound bites this is a great book to dive into but it is a tough read and reuires concentration to keep track of who is who and doing what to whomHighly recommended
