42. Try reading "Charlie Wilson's War" -- really outrageous...
how one Rep. was able to have an unparalleled impact on the Afghan (vs. USSR) war. He sat on the committee that provided the funds, and knew an agent inside the CIA who was gung-ho to do the same things he wanted done. They basically formulated an important component of US foreign policy on their own, and ended up training and equipping all those "freedom fighters" who later turned their USA-supplied expertise and weapons on the US.
