Losing bin Laden is a dramatic, page-turning read, a riveting account of a terror war that bin Laden openly declared, but that Clinton left largely unfought. With a pounding narrative, up-close characters and detailed scenes, it takes you inside the Oval Office, the White House Situation Room, and within some of the deadliest terrorist cells that America has ever faced. If Clinton had fought back, the attacks on September 11, 2001 might never have happened.
"A valuable history that should serve as a training manual in how not to run a foreign policy." (The Washington Times)

Put politics aside, this is an interesting book
It does not take too much of a stretch of an imagination to think that a president would be consumed with his own scandals to avoid confronting a brewing problem elsewhere. I am a political junkie and have a good feel for politcal pragmatism. This account is very reasonable considering Clinton's track record. No person could objectively give this book a 1 star. Buy the book and get ready to get pissed off at your government.

Going against the grain
In this era of "cookie-cutter protest", it is refreshing to find some actual evidence to support a theorem as opposed to the emotional, baseless attacks that I read daily in the news. While it may be appealing to pin 9/11 on a single administration, I believe the most relevant quote is the one I heard long ago in an effort to detract from President Reagan's victory over Communism, (I paraphrase) "Crediting President Reagan with the fall of Communism is like crediting a man for the sunset because if happened while he was around". The point is, the makings of 9/11 were in the works long before the 7 months President Bush was in office. Let's use some objectivity here. I believe in truth, not "partisian"(sic)ship. Please exercise some independent thought and weigh the evidence here.
