I am currently reading Pakistan on the Brink by Ahmed Rashid, also have Taliban by him that i have yet to start. Also reading Inside Al Quaeda and the Taliban by Syed Saleem Shahzad which is fascinating thus far. Shahzad was actually kidnapped, tortured, and murdered shortly after the release of this book it is believed that the ISI did it after warning Shahzad multiple times. Last but not least my bedside book that I've been slowly burning through is The Generals: American Military Command from World War II to Today by Thomas E. Ricks. I'm still in the first quarter of this book which mainly deals with the Marshall era and how Army General's were frequently relieved of there posts by their superior generals in World War Two at the slightest sign of combat ineffectiveness, contrary to today's structure which frowns upon removing the higher echelons of leadership without presidential backing.
