Read this account to know what actually caused the war that resulted in a lot of bloodshed that could be avoided to a large extent.
Summary of the Book
The 9/11 attacks were followed by a lot of havoc in America and other parts of the world. The Taliban were the most feared clan in the world, and still are because of the damage and terror they caused on that ill-fated day. This is a book that chronicles the Afghan war which the author says was caused because America made a mistake by trusting its ally who turned out to be their biggest enemy, Pakistan. This trust is supposedly the root cause for the ruthless destruction of the people of Afghanistan. Carlotta Gall has revealed plenty of evidence of how Pakistan played a major role in protecting Osama bin Laden, and says that they also trained many militants who operated from that region. She explains the role of Pakistan’s intelligence forces and government and their dubious activities. The book also contains her first-hand accounts of Pakistani intelligence thugs, Taliban warlords, American generals, Afghan politicians, and innocent people who were terrorized by the war. She has said that Afghanistan was never an enemy to anyone and was wronged throughout the period of the war.
