That Greg Mortenson has accomplished what he has in the Middle East is nothing short of extraordinary and his is a compelling story, which was hard to put down. However, Mr. Mortenson and his journalist coauthor lost my respect when they started America-bashing, as though the United States is singlehandedly responsible for all the problems in this third world country and should keep pouring money into Pakistan. I see no reason why their liberal-leaning political views had to enter into this story at all except that they wanted to get their licks in. Education is a big part of the answer, but it's naive to think that it's all of it.
