Summary
In "Dirty Wars," Jeremy Scahill, author of the "New York Times" best-seller "Blackwater," takes us inside America's new covert wars. As he reveals, the foot soldiers in these battles operate daily across the globe and inside the United States with orders from the White House to do whatever is necessary to hunt down, capture, or kill individuals designated by the president as enemies of America
Summary
A sobering expose of secret war programs currently being conducted behind the scenes of the War on Terror, drawing on interviews with CIA agents, mercenaries and other operators to reveal the human consequences of night raids, drone strikes and other unofficial "dirty-war" tactics
