This book takes you inside Rumsfeld's Pentagon, detailing the decisions he has made to enable our military to fight this most unconventional of wars. National security reporter Scarborough shows not only how Rumsfeld is fighting the war, but how he is fighting the bureaucracy and remaking the American military, shifting the focus from the ingrained bureaucracy to the special operations and others who live by "can-do." Many of Rumsfeld's victories are revealed here for the first time. Scarborough also provides details of some highly secretive Pentagon operations--carried out under Rumsfeld's supervision by groups that most Americans don't even know exist. In addition, Scarborough offers a comparison between Rumsfeld's decisiveness and the Clinton administration's treatment of terrorism as a law enforcement issue during al Qaeda's astonishingly rapid rise in the 1990s. Scarborough concludes that history will surely judge Rumsfeld as "one of America's most important defense leaders."--Publisher description.
