Description

"In 2007, three young stoners from Miami Beach were put in charge of a $300 million Department of Defense contract to supply ammunition to the Afghanistan military. Instead of fulfilling the order with high-quality arms, Efraim Diveroli, David Packouz, and Alex Podrizki bought cheap surplus Communist Bloc ammunition, which they shipped from Kabul-until they were caught by Pentagon investigators and the scandal turned up on the front page of the New York Times. That's the "official" story. The truth is far more explosive. Journalist Guy Lawson tells the thrilling true tale"--Back cover.
