Hey. Krakauer was one of the idiots on Everest when all those people died, and showed how self-centered he is by his actions.
Sleep well, Jon.
I don’t know anything, I just read the paper, and I knew Bin Ladin was planning to attack the United States. And I knew from the paper that there was a sudden uptick in “chatter” in August.
The problem was knowing when and how. And doing it with pre-patriot-act laws. Gorelick’s “wall”.
Ya think this moron libtard who wrote the review does anything else except slobber all over Oliver Stone movies in his spare time?
Just another reason the Globe is going down, thank goodness.
I almost bought this book the other day when I saw that it was supposed to be about Pat Tillman. I then realized who the author was and bought Beck’s “Arguing With Idiots” instead.
The first paragraph has nothing to do with the rest of the story, just gratuitous swipes at Bush the “vacationing” President who was dismissive of a threat brief which lacked any specifics....the hallmark of the IC.
So, if we follow Krakauer's logic, bill clinton should be in jail because he and his admin neglected to take bin laden into custody five times, from two different governments
Between this richard cranium, Matthews, Olberman, Schultz etc., the entire left is doing nothing more than mentally masturbating.
I await the book on Obama that details these things.
Krakauer's book is also an exhaustive examination of America's political and military involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq. Krakauer documents an unsettling history of miscalculation and mismanagement, of tactical blunders, deliberate deceit, and stunning incompetence at the highest levels of leadership. He finds no shortage of examples of the brand of blind arrogance and bad judgment...IOW, another in a long line of left wing screed.
Does he suggest that our current naive, appeasing president is somehow an improvement in national security? Give me a break.
