    Default Afghanistan papers reveal US public were misled about unwinnable war

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...unwinnable-war

    Hundreds of confidential interviews with key figures involved in prosecuting the 18-year US war in Afghanistan have revealed that the US public has been consistently misled about an unwinnable conflict.

    Transcripts of the interviews, published by the Washington Post after a three-year legal battle, were collected for a Lessons Learned project by the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (Sigar), a federal agency whose main task is eliminating corruption and inefficiency in the US war effort.


    The article is over a year old but very relevant. The book is going to be published in September.
