The news-breaking book that has sent schockwaves through the White House, Ghost Wars is the most accurate and revealing account yet of the CIA's secret involvement in al-Qaeada's evolution.

Here he gives the full inside story of the CIA's covert funding of an Islamic jihad against Soviet forces in Afghanistan, explores how this sowed the seeds of bn Laden's rise, traces how he built his global network and brings to life the dramatic battles within the US government over national security.

The Institute has successfully reanimated the body of Bayou Savage from his 200 year quantum suspension. The scientists, beleaguered by a wimpy, arrogant bureaucrat, have no idea of the unholy hell that is following Bayou into the year 2206. The opening of the portal paved an eight-lane highway for the banshees, ghosts and ghouls that spent the last 200 years in an Alcatraz dimension. The prison doors have opened and the miscreant souls are thirsty for blood and revenge. What's left of the world, from the Religious Wars of 2012, is about to be ravished by the Magi and his hoards from Hades. The only good news is that Leslie Quinn, a formidable psychic, unrestricted by conventional dimensions, has brought Razor Savage, Quirk and Mist to the battlefield. Bayou's famous ghostfighting father, the first director of The Institute and Bayou's daughter will be able to lend a hand in the ghost wars that are coming hard and fast on the heels of what appeared to be a harmless experiment in resuscitation. Follow us now into an unknown world of bloodthirsty phantoms, a mystical guitar talisman and the ghost warriors come to save the planet. Will they succeed?

From the managing editor of the Washington Post, a news-breaking account of the CIA's involvement in the covert wars in Afghanistan that fueled Islamic militancy and gave rise to bin Laden's al Qaeda. For nearly the past quarter century, while most Americans were unaware, Afghanistan has been the playing field for intense covert operations by U.S. and foreign intelligence agencies-invisible wars which sowed the seeds of the September 11 attacks and which provide its context. From the Soviet invasion in 1979 through the summer of 2001, the CIA, KGB, Pakistan's ISI, and Saudi Arabia's General Intelligence Department all operated directly and secretly in Afghanistan. They primed Afghan factions with cash and weapons, secretly trained guerrilla forces, funded propaganda, and manipulated politics. In the midst of these struggles bin Laden conceived and then built his global organization. Comprehensively and for the first time, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Steve Coll tells the secret history of the CIA's role in Afghanistan, from its covert program against Soviet troops from 1979 to 1989, to the rise of the Taliban and the emergence of bin Laden, to the secret efforts by CIA officers and their agents to capture or kill bin Laden in Afghanistan after 1998.

Type: BOOK - Published: 2007 - Publisher: I. B. Tauris
This book discusses how terrorists raise and transfer money to finance terrorism, and discusses the laws, rules and regulations designed to combat the process. In the process, the author discusses the faulty assumption which has formed the basis of the U.S. financial war on terror: that Al-Qaeda and other related terrorist groups were comparable to drug lords and other international gangsters, and that the methods derived from the war on drugs could be uncritically transposed to the fight against terror. He concludes that tracking clean money being "soiled" for illicit purposes requires fundamentally different intelligence and law enforcement approaches from monitoring dirty money that is being laundered.

Out of bounds

Authors: Thomas A. Bruscino
Categories: Afghanistan

This authoritative official monograph uses two case studies to examine the role played by military sanctuaries as they relate to irregular warfare. In the first of two case studies, Out of Bounds looks at the United States' efforts to counter the advantages gained by the Viet Cong (and later the North Vietnamese Army) with sanctuaries in Cambodia, and Laos during the Vietnam War. It uses this example to point out the diplomatic, military, and economic challenges that develop when attempting to prevent the use of transnational sanctuaries by irregular forces. The second case study examines the Soviet incursion into Afghanistan in the 1980s, but this time from the perspective of the Mujahideen insurgency. This section of the book illustrates the advantages accrued by the Afghan resistance through the use of Pakistan as a sanctuary, the Soviet efforts to neutralize those advantages, and the Mujahideen's responses to overcome Soviet actions.
