“Little America: The War Within the War for Afghanistan”
On September 13, 2012 award-winning Washington Post columnist Rajiv Chandrasekaran presented his most recent book Little America: The War Within the War for Afghanistan, about President Obama’s order to increase the number of US troops in Afghanistan. Mr. Chandrasekaran traveled to Afghanistan to report for the Post on the impact of this troop surge”. What he discovered informs his book; of not only obstacles created by Afghans and Pakistanis, but from in-fighting amongst President Obama’s security advisers, and turf wars between the branches of the armed forces, which inhibited the effectiveness of the surge. Author of Imperial Life In the Emerald City, about the US war in Iraq, Mr. Chandrasekaran brings his in-depth and critical reporting style to “the other” US war.
