EPIC FAIL: could easily have been summed up in one sentence: continuation and expansion of the Bush administration!
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Charlie Savage has written a 704-page book - - WITHOUT ANY INDEX??????
Has a Yale law degree but never has heard of indices???
Begins the book in the most disingenuous manner possible: describing the underwear bomber [an incident I have thoroughly researched in three languages], Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, but somehow NEGLECTS to mention that Umar was refused passage by French security at the airport in France as he had NO PASSPORT, had NO LUGGAGE, and only had a one-way ticket and, gee whiz, was on the terrorist watch list?!?!?!?!?
American witnesses aboard Flight 253 as well as French witnesses at the French airport would recount this -- that a man from the American embassy [CIA...CIA...CIA] overrode French airport security and ushered Umar aboard, no doubt hoping the destruction of Flight 253 and murder of the passengers would ensue?!
Now, a real journalist would have mentioned these itty bitty details, but a Pulitzer Prize-winning NY Times dude obviously doesn't qualify.
Towards the end, there's yet another lawyerly discussion [among endless such drivel] about the // legal right \\ of the USA to attack Syria for its alleged use of poison gas - - which we now know was supplied to certain factions [Obama-supported al Qaeda, perhaps??] by Turkey, so such discussions are as nebulous and useless as is most of this 704-page without an index book!

Got days to waste? Then peruse this 704-page book by a shyster shill, for shyster shills!
