This book is filled with inaccuracies / half truths and total lies.
Read House of Bush / House of Saud
Price of Loyalty
Does America Need a Foreign Policy
Against All Enemies
for more of a factual based history of people who have actually been there.
There are so many books out there which offer even-handed reviews of the facts, that this book should only be of interest to Rush Limbaugh and people who enjoy "Swift-Boat" type attacks of the Democratic party.
Very good book backed-up by 100s of personal interviews. While the author pretty much tries to lay the entire blame on the Clinton Administration, there is plenty to go around among the different agencies involved. After reading The Looming Tower (about the 9/11 attacks) which was absolutely non-partisan, I can say Losing bin Laden covers the bases. Clinton haters, i.e., anyone not on welfare, or waiting for an abortion and who is aware of American History, will love Losing bin Laden.
Miniter does a credible job of exposing the failures of the Clinton Administration in ignoring international terrorism in general, and Osama bin Laden in particular. Having said that, like a lot of political writers, he engages in a certain amount of Monday-morning quarterbacking, and he places too much credence in the statements of discredited Clinton flacks like Madeline Albright and Richard Clarke. To his credit, he does not fall prey to the wild conspiracy theorizing one usually sees in political writing, particularly on the left.
