Rating: 5

Headline: Well Researched

Rachel Maddow is best-known for her liberal political views that she expresses on nightly on her MSNBC show. Some people do not know that Ms. Maddow is a Rhodes Scholar and can offer unbiased opinions on matters dealing with our political system. In Drift: The Unmooring of American Military Power, Maddow attempts to give a non-partisan view on our military and their wars.

Maddow gives a well-researched account of how our military was supposed to operate under the Constitution and then the reality of how over time, the policies have shifted. Maddow shows how many of the major players are interconnected and have been working hard for many years to take the power away from Congress and the American people.

Drift was an excellent book if you are interested in learning about American military power, contractors, and to read of some possible solutions. Rachel Maddow has written an unbiased and very informative piece of work.
