Read from September 24 to October 05, 2011

While the book is longer than it needs to be and isn't as well written as you'd think it'd be based on the co/ghost-author, it's an interesting read and an important book that shows how wrong the first eight years of the war on terror was and how poorly the Bush administration handled counterterrorism, detainees, and interrogation methods. While it sometimes reads a bit too memoir-y and the author clearly has some personal issues with the CIA (most of which are based on legitimate professional reads), it's still worth reading.
