Melvin Goodman Praises Crossing Zero

“Gould and Fitzgerald have identified the triumphalist strain that has marked American foreign policy over the past 100 years and documented President Obama’s failure to introduce change to American national security policy.  The war in Afghanistan is consistent with previous failures in U.S. policymaking over the past 50 years as well as with the misuse of military force.  This book should be required reading at the National Security Council and the Pentagon.”

Melvin  Goodman; Senior Fellow; Center for International Policy; Washington, DC.,  served at the CIA as senior Soviet analyst from 1966-1990 and as professor of international security at the National War College from 1986-2004.
