    Mayer's book The Dark Side - highly recommended.

    From one reviewer on Amazon. (Sorry I no longer have the link):

    This is a powerful story. She tells us that we must look at ourselves if we ever hope to recapture our moral greatness. Even this she concedes will take years. Her book is a good place for our national introspection to begin. It is organized and well-written. Her appeal is persuasive. It is a classic page-turner, and held my interest throughout. There were no "dry spots." Equally important are her sources and references, which are impeccable.

    She concludes this powerful report with the following: "Seven years after Al Qaeda's attacks on America, as the Bush Administration slips into history, it is clear that what began on September 11, 2001, as a battle for America's security became, and continues to be a battle for the country's soul."

    That battle for the country's soul continues, perhaps on a different level, but continues still, in Afghanistan.

    We are on the cusp of losing our democracy for the sake of keeping our empire... Chalmers Johnson
