The absolute best book about the wars in Afghanistan & Iraq

America's Secret War - George Friedman - American Foreign Policy Insight George Friedman's book, "America's Secret War," is the absolute best book I've read to date about the lead-up to 9/11, and about the administration's response in both Afghanistant and Iraq. For those who don't know, George Friedman has a company Strategic Forecasting (or Stratfor) that is in the business of collecting and analyzing data, and then selling it to American companies. He has no bones to pick -- his money comes from figuring out the situation in the ground correctly -- so the book has a surprisingly objective feel to go along with an incredibly fascinating analysis.
