The Five Biggest Lies Bush Told Us About Iraq

The Five Biggest Lies Bush Told Us About Iraq, by Christopher Scheer, Lakshmi Chaudhry and Robert Scheer, is an insightful and incisive primer exposing the bullying and mendacious misinformation campaign George Bush's White House used to secure the support of Congress, the media and a majority of Americans for a preemptive invasion and occupation of Iraq.

From the enormous bait-and-switch operation that, within hours after the collapse of the World Trade Center, tried to link Al Qaeda with Saddam Hussein, to the clumsy attempts by the U.S. military to pacify, reconstruct and democratize a complex Muslim nation on the other side of the world, this important book razes the house of cards upon which our foreign policy has been built since 9/11.

This is the rare book that you must purchase for yourself and another few for your friends. My copy will stay by my side as a reference. It is the definitive description of how the Orwellean absurdity of a preventative war leads, of course, to endless misery.
