Charlie Wilson's War was a publishing sensation and a New York Times Washington Post and Los Angeles Times bestseller In the early 1980s a Houston socialite turned the attention of maverick Texas congressman Charlie Wilson to the ragged band of Afghan freedom fighters who continued despite overwhelming odds to fight the Soviet invaders Wilson who sat on the all powerful House Appropriations Committ. Charlie Wilson s War is a chilling tale of how a few determined people can undermine all existing law use their positions of power and influence to get unseen funds allocated and pursue a major war without the approval of the American people Crile was clearly enad of Wilson regarding him as a charismatic larger than life figure who performed a major service to the West by tipping the Soviet Union over the edge Crile foreground with Wilson suspenders and an unnamed ISI agent shades in Afghanistan from Wiki media There is some consciousness here of some of the blowback that resulted from this work the resources now used by Islamic extremists to attack the West but I doubt that Wilson or any of his cohorts will ever accept any real responsibility for that A must read for anyone interested in how foreign policy can be driven by committed individuals The film that was based on the book is definitely worth a look EXTRA STUFFCrile a long time producer and reporter for CBS news a two time winner of the Edward R Murrow Award for his outstanding foreign policy reporting passed away at age 61 in 2006 There are many links to reports Crile made on this wiki pageCharlie Wilson passed away in 2010 Wikipedia has a bit information on him
