A great book which brings to light facts about 9/11 and our realtionship with our so called friends like the Saudis and Pakistanis. VERY interesting analysis about where UBL is hiding (in plain sight) and how strange it seems that we can't find him. I couldn't put the book down and finished it in two days.

After coming across Schultheis's new book, I've ordered copies for all my friends and family. This is one of the most important books of the year. It provides both a vital history to, and brillant analysis of, the origins of the war on terrror, and why we are losing it. After spending a great deal of time in Afghanistan, as well as Iraq, Schultheis is uniquely positioned to evaluate the misguided strategy that the US continues to pursue. If you want to understand the real nature of the conflcit between the US and radical Islam, without the fluff and spin of either the Bush administration or the mainstream news media, read this book.

"Hunting bin Laden: How al-Qaeda Is Winning the War on Terror" is an excellent and very readable account of the people and wars of Afghanistan, the Taliban and al Quaeda. I enjoyed reading the author's speculation on the current whereabouts of bin Laden, and even found via online satellite images a developed site in the tribal border region that matches Schultheis's description of his hideout.

"...if ISI wasn't allied with al-Qaeda, why did Pakistan flt al-Qaeda personnel as well as ISI officers and Taleban commanders out of Kunduz in November 2001?"

"...until Wahhabi missionaries paid by Saudi "religious charities" began showing up in the 1990s, opening Salafist madrassas and mosques. Shortly thereafter, Moslem converts began kinds of attacks never seen before in the region..."

This journalist is surely one of a kind. He has spent decades in Afghanistan, writing and monitoring events happening there. He's survived at least half a dozen assassination attempts, yet can still find people he can truly trust among their native peoples. To do the sort of dangerous work he does requires a certain kind of person, courageous, strong willed, extremely fit physically, shrewd, cunning and wise, a lot like the native Afghans. I have so many pages bookmarked and alas, ( if I were only independently wealthy, I would own it) it's a library book due today!

The stories he shares have made lasting impressions upon me: the Hazara, (Shia muslim) women in a refugee camp slaughtered two weeks after he visited them who begged him for help escaping the Taleban, the nursing woman shot dead along a rural road by heroin addicted Taleban orphan boys, an American soldier shot dead because of his disrespectful behavior toward Afghanistan.

A plus reporting by Robert Schulteis, the book is choc full of information about Afghanistan. Good luck catching UBL, seems like someone in Pakistan's ISI is clueing him in on a few things....
