The Forty Years War examines the rise of the likes of Al Haig, Dick Cheney, and Donald Rumsfeld and their impact on American Foreign policy since the Nixon administration. While one wouldn't expect cabinet secretaries and there underlings to always agree with the president, it was surprising to see how often they worked against the policies of the president. The neocons also spent considerable effort in sabotoging each other. They all seemed more interested in advancing their own power and influence than working for the good of the country. ( )
