book: See No Evil

See No Evil: The True Story of a Ground Soldier in the CIA’s War on Terror.   by Robert Baer.

this is a fascinating and fast-moving book referred to me by both Aydin Senkut and Patrick McKenna.  It reads like a movie (and recently i found out it is the basis for Syriana).   

that said, i have no idea how much of it is accurate.  i suspect a good deal of the book is at least embellished.   so i’m not sure how many of the great nuggets and tales are true.   

but it is an enjoyable book nevertheless and i would suggest it to anyone (especially the audiobook which can be really riveting if you listen to it, as i did, while running).
