I discovered Joe Haldeman’s work in a rather unusual fashion. I was living in Waltham, MA in a basement efficiency apartment. In the other side of the basement was a box of books. I asked the landlord about them and he told me to go ahead and grab and read any I wanted. The first one I picked up was a fairly slender book titled Mindbridge.

Here it is, to be laid out by the latest National Intelligence Estimates: no real partner in the corrupt central government, lagging development and security training, no buy-in from Pakistan to root out safe havens, fading support from the public, and a country still under Taliban control, for the most part.
Other than that, great war we’re running.
