    The Last Installment

    The most important discovery in this book may be the interfighting between the DoD, generals in Iraq (against the surge), the CIA (by now, reduced in importance), Iraq's prime minister and the generals for the surge (ultimately correct). It was amazing how unimportant the word of Rumsfeld was by the time of the surge and how awesomely intellectual Petraeus was (unlike continued portraits by Democrats). It is clear from this book, however, how unreliable our so-called Arab 'allies' are such as Nouri al-Maliki is--a killer sectarian leader at best, an agent of Iran at worst. It was an amazing revelation that the DIA (notoriously wrong on the frontline intelligence) was correct in their assumptions of Mr. Maliki and the violence in Iraq, not the overly-hyped CIA. It was also disconcerting that another so-called ally, Egypt, was urging the coup of Maliki by the formidable Mukhbatkar intelligence man Oman Suleiman. Indeed, it was an effort against their regional enemy of the Sunni Muslims and ethnic Arabs--the Persian Iranians and skeptical of both Zionist Israel and shady Syria.

    Every citizen should read

    This is an excellent insight on how politicians use the military as thier pawns. Not just the Bush administration but every war time administration. An excellent book with great insight and insider information.

    An insider's view

    First, the book is long and tedious, but Woodward's details are thorough and intense, which is important considering the historical significance of this book. Some might disagree with his representation of the material, but it's virtually indisputable that there was conflict in the oval office about how to proceed in Iraq and it's certainly important to understand in light of what came of the ongoing conflict. I'm a student of leadership and since finishing 'The War Within' I've moved on to an outstanding leadership fable called 'Squawk! - How to Stop Making Noise and Start Getting Results.' It's been a big boon to me both at work and with my family.
