Paul Brinkley, the top ranking official at the U.S. Department of Defense in charge of economic rebuilding, reveals why Iraq and Afghanistan have been disasters for their people. "Baghdad Start-Up" is the dramatic inside story of America's role in stabilizing and rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan in the War on Terror, told in the firsthand accounts of former Deputy Under Secr Paul Brinkley, the top ranking official at the U.S. Department of Defense in charge of economic rebuilding, reveals why Iraq and Afghanistan have been disasters for their people. "Baghdad Start-Up" is the dramatic inside story of America's role in stabilizing and rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan in the War on Terror, told in the firsthand accounts of former Deputy Under Secretary of Defense Paul Brinkley. Based on his five years overseeing economic improvement in the region under both the Bush and Obama Administrations, Brinkley exposes the vast gap between the successes American citizens have been told about (and the excuses for failures we've been given) and the reality on the ground. Brinkley further explains how many of our policies and goals in both Iraq and Afghanistan were designed by people with no business experience, that very little of the money bound for war zones has made it out of DC (ending up in contractor bank accounts), and that most of the successes Americans have been told about have actually made the Afghan and Iraqi populace nothing but angry with us. With expert advice on what it takes to rebuild and revitalize an economy under fire, "Baghdad Start-Up" shares up close what we have learned, what we have accomplished, and what we wish we had done differently in Iraq and Afghanistan. This engaging account details: How the business of our government, and its largest bureaucracy, the Department of Defense, works; how we sought to change how it did business; and how the effort to change it led to a trip to a war zone Businesses in Iraq, before and after Saddam American support dwindling upon the start of the election season The Bush Administration versus the Obama Administration--their successes and failures The horror of the Babylon Hotel bombing--a detailed firsthand account of what it's like to experience a terrorist attack firsthand The Iraq election--did the citizens really elect the government? Politics and economics in today's Iraq Why the American model for foreign development must change
