The title of the book comes from an admission Mr. Clark made before a Congressional committee on the events leading up to 9/11. Clark clearly loves the military personnel he worked with, but is just as clearly not enamored of the brass that made self-serving, political or even cowardly decisions that jeopardized the people under them. The author is equally critical of the politicians he worked with; pointing out various political decisions that did not protect, or serve, the people.
At 450+ pages it won't take you long to get cover to cover- time well spent. This book will make you angry, and you should be.
