I heard the author on the radio and found him interesting. Gave up on the book after 90 pages. I understand that the CIA asked for extensive edits for security reasons; there are so many redactions / heavy black bars on the pages that I couldn't settle in and read. I think having a good editor and an explanation that there were heavy edits would have been more effective.

Given the dominance of the Taliban and ISIS in Afghanistan today, he must not of done much of a competent job there?
