Carlotta Gall has reported from Afghanistan and Pakistan for almost the entire duration of the American invasion and occupation, beginning shortly after 9/11. In The Wrong Enemy she chronicles just how much this war has cost the Afghan people and how much damage can be traced to Pakistan and its duplicitous government and intelligence forces. She reveals shocking evidence which details the extent of Pakistans involvement in protecting Osama bin Laden and in training militants who operated in the region. Her first-hand accounts of Pakistani intelligence thugs, Taliban warlords, American generals, Afghani politicians and the many innocents who were caught up in this long war are riveting. This is a sweeping history of a war brought by American leaders against an enemy they barely understood and could not engage.
