ᗝ Purpose of textCharlie Wilson's War (English Edition) ᚂ Book Author George Crile 퍒 Put the Tom Clancy clones back on the shelf this covert ops chronicle is practically impossible to put down No thriller writer would dare invent Wilson, a six feet four inch Texas congressman,liberal on social issues but rabidly anti Communist, a boozer, engaged in serial affairs and wheeler dealer of consummate skill Only slightly less improbable is Gust Avrakotos, a blue collar Greek immigrant who joined the CIA when it was an Ivy League preserve and fought his elitist colleagues almost as ruthlessly as he fought the Soviet Union in the Cold War s waning years In conjunction with President Zia of Pakistan in the 1980s, Wilson and Arvakotos circumvented most of the barriers to arming the Afghan mujahideen distance, money, law and internal CIA politics, to name a few Their coups included getting Israeli modified Chinese weapons smuggled into Afghanistan, with the Pakistanis turning a blind eye,and the cultivation of a genius level weapons designer and strategist named Michael Vickers, a key architect of the guerrilla campaign that left the Soviet army stymied The ultimate weapon in Afghanistan was the portable Stinger anti aircraft missile, which eliminated the Soviet s Mi 24 helicopter gunships and began the train of events leading to the collapse of the U.S.S.R and its satellites A triumph of ruthless ability over scruples, this story has dominated recent history in the form of blowback many of the men armed by the CIA became the Taliban s murderous enforcers and Osama bin Laden s protectors Yet superb writing from Crile, a 60 Minutes producer, will keep even the most vigorous critics of this Contra like affair reading to the end.Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.A longtime Sixty Minutes producer investigates the expenditure of what eventually amounted to 1 billion a year to support Afghanistan s Mujahideen in their battle against the Soviets.Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
