Authors Jon Meacham, James Baker, Karen Hughes, Richard Haas and Bing West all come together to give an excellent portrayal of the life and times of Osama bin Laden.
These are all experts in the field and this book, Beyond Bin Laden, really is hard-hitting, fact filled, and shows just what impact bin Laden and the Al Qaeda terrorist network had on our country both before and after 9/11.
Our country, America, is still showing the after effects as we are involved and can’t quite seem to remove ourselves fully from the different skirmishes in the Middle East. Soon as things quiet down a little bit in Afghanistan, things pop up in Pakistan, then Iraq, then Egypt, and on and on and on. Where it stops, nobody knows.
The cost to America has been great in lives lost during and on the battlefield, homeland security, inconveniences to everyday Americans, and the list just goes on.
I thought this was an excellent read, and for those who want to keep up on what’s going on in the Middle East, and life after bin Laden, read this book!!!
