By David Rohde
The Pulitzer Prize–winning writer examines the cardinal failing of Washington’s conflict on terror
This ebook distills 11 years of professional reporting for The manhattan Times, Reuters, and The Atlantic Monthly right into a clarion demand switch. An incisive examine the evolving nature of warfare, Rohde exposes how a dysfunctional Washington squandered billions on contractors in Iraq and Afghanistan, missed its precise allies within the conflict on terror and did not hire its so much effective nonmilitary guns: American consumerism, expertise, and funding. Rohde then surveys post-Arab Spring Tunisia, Turkey, and Egypt, and unearths a longing for American know-how, alternate, and schooling. He argues that purely Muslim moderates, now not american citizens, can remove militancy. For readers of Steve Coll, Tom Ricks, and Ahmed Rashid, Beyond War exhibits how the failed American attempt to again reasonable Muslims when you consider that 9-11 might be salvaged.
