October 7, 2011 marked the tenth anniversary of the start of the Afghan war, and this explosive book exposes how the West lost it's chance to rout the Taliban and stabilize Afghanistan.
In late 2001, a group of Afghan tribal leaders met to plan how to topple the Taliban. Within weeks, the plan was in tatters, thwarted by the West and its leader, Abdul Haq, assassinated by the Taliban. Lucy Morgan Edwards's investigation into Haq's tragic mission led her to Taliban Ministers, warlords, spies, and two American Republican brothers who financed Haq's venture.
Based on the author's own experience of the war in Afghanistan, this book reveals how a solution to the war was lost and why it matters today.
