Description - I is for Infidel by Kathy Gannon
Kathy Gannon, uniquely among Western journalists, witnessed Afghanistans tragic opera: the final collapse of communism, the wars of the warlords finally driven from power by the Taliban, the subsequent arrival of Arabs and exiles, among them Osama Bin Laden, and the transformation of the country into the staging post for a global jihad. She also observed the terrible, unforeseen consequences of Western intervention and the mistakes we made, and are still making, in dealing with this complex country.
