Former Special Forces Sgt. Stan Goff served the U.S. military for two
decades. He fought in Vietnam and trained government troops in hot spots
from Guatemala and El Salvador to Colombia and Peru before ending his
career in Haiti.

Disillusioned by what he saw, Goff offers a stunning -- and highly
personal -- critique of U.S. counterinsurgency strategies, a soldier's eye
view of what's gone wrong. His account is a modern version of the historic
objections voiced by Gen. Smedley Butler in the 1930s.
