The Stinger Missile and U.S. Intervention in Afghanistan
Alan J. Kuperman challenges the traditional assessment of the U.S. decision to supply Stinger antiaircraft missiles to the Afghan Mujahedin resistance during the Soviet occupation of the 1980s. He exposes the bureaucratic politics behind this decision, rejects as myth the popular notion that the Stingers forced Soviet withdrawal, and examines how the CIA's faulty implementation contributed to long-term threats to U.S. national security.
