Rolling Stone reporter gets gig hanging out with General McChrystal and his entourage, follows them around Europe, parties with them, listens to them slag people in the Obama administration, goes home, writes article, McChrystal resigns and entourage are very bitter. Morale of the story: Yes, high-ranking officers, those media handling briefs are for you as well. Even in wartime, politics always take precedence.

To me this book read like being on tour with Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones... "What kind of beer does the General drink", "The General is a Democrat", Well written but lacking much depth into the person(s).

Great inside look at the Great American War Corporative Machine and how it supports the Republicans dream of free enterprise.

If you're still wondering why we are there, read this book and follow the money trail.

A good scare is worth more than good advice.
