ABSTRACT
The article discusses the book "Imperial Hubris: Why the West Is Losing the War on Terror," by Michael Scheuer. The book focuses on the effects of imperial hubris among the U.S. leaders that caused the deaths of 58,000 U.S. troops in Vietnam. Not to mention the 2 million to 3 million Vietnamese who lost their lives in that war. Scheuer notes that the U.S. policy has been the most effective recruiting tool imaginable for Bin Laden, and that the invasion and occupation of Iraq were icing on the cake. Scheuer opines that the whole idea of having a Central Intelligence Agency is that there be one place in government without a policy agenda.
