4.0 out of 5 stars A good but depressing story, 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wrong Enemy: America in Afghanistan, 2001-2014 (Hardcover)
You have to admire the guts and tenacity of the author in bringing together all the very personal stories which make up a large part of the main currents running through Afghanistan under America's engagement with that benighted Country.If anyone needs to have a clear vision of what the term failed State really means then this is the narrative to reach for.Pakistan comes off very badly in this account and one shudders to think that what we have here is a belligerent nuclear armed State mostly out of control.At the end you just feel incredibly sorry for the Afghans and just appalled by the actions almost everyone else.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two-faced 'ally', 23 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wrong Enemy: America in Afghanistan, 2001-2014 (Hardcover)
I have been visiting Afghanistan since Carlotta Gall's dad, Sandy, was reporting there in the 1980s. She gets it absolutely right about Pakistan's utterly two-faced policy towards the West. Pakistan - and its nukes - have always been the greatest threat, not the Taliban in Afghanistan. And this book proves the point eloquently.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can Pakistan ever be trusted again?, 6 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Surprised how the US intelligence failed to spot the enemy in their partner.
Will Pakistan's obsession of advancing towards its (warped) national interests at any cost destroy itself?
