A great book for understanding the conflict between the United States and Al Qaeda.

a blow by blow description of the "longest war", written by obviously an American, decrying especially American blunders and shenanigans, the egregious incompetence of their empire under George W. Bush

Very illuminating about the incompetence of the George W Bush White House on their war with Al Qaeda.

The missed opportunities in capturing Bin Laden and the obsessions with starting a war with Iraq under flimsy evidence about Irag's involvement with 9/11

Good review of what has occurred since 9/11, as well as the outlook for the conflict between the US and Al-Qaeda

Nobody knows more about al-Quaeda than Peter Bergen.
