The author of Blackwater presents a sobering exposé of secret war programs currently being conducted behind the scenes of the War on Terror, drawing on interviews with CIA agents, mercenaries and other operators to reveal the human consequences of night raids, drone strikes and other unofficial "dirty-war" tactics. 125,000 first printing.
In this remarkable story from the frontlines of the undeclared battlefields of the War on Terror, journalist Jeremy Scahill documents the new paradigm of American war: fought far from any declared battlefield, by units that do not officially exist, in thousands of operations a month that are never publicly acknowledged.The devastating picture that emerges in Dirty Wars is of a secret U.S. killing machine that has grown more powerful than whatever president happens to reside in the White House. Scahill argues that far from keeping the United States–and the world–safe from terrorism, these covert American wars ensure that the terror will grow and spread.
