Publisher's Summary

"Just as the necessary qualification for a good liar is a good memory, so the essential equipment of a would-be lie detector is a good timeline, and a decent archive."
In No One Left to Lie To, a New York Times best-seller, Christopher Hitchens casts an unflinching eye on the Clinton political machine and offers a searing indictment of a president who sought to hold power at any cost.
With blistering wit and meticulous documentation, Hitchens masterfully deconstructs Clinton's abject propensity for pandering to the Left while delivering to the Right, and he argues that the president's personal transgressions were ultimately inseparable from his political corruption.
Hitchens questions the president's refusals to deny accusations of rape by reputable women and lambasts, among numerous impostures, his insistence on playing the race card, the shortsightedness of his welfare bill, his ludicrous war on drugs, and his abandonment of homosexuals in the form of the Defense of Marriage Act.
Opportunistic statecraft, crony capitalism, "divide and rule" identity politics, and populist manipulations - these are perhaps Clinton's greatest and most enduring legacies.

A scathing attack from the left.

I was shocked by this book and I went into it with a positive view of both Clintons. I have listened to the Trial of Henry Kissinger which is also excellent and will read the missionary position.

The lies that have continued...

I do wish that Christopher Hitchens was alive today to see the drama and twist of the 2016 Presidential election. The issues, tactics, and story of the Clintons in 2016 is still very much the same (from taking soft money, taking foreign money, lies or amnesia of details from the past, as well as the cozy relationship with the media) today.
This book is well written and well read, from a well educated and honest journalist who is known for his sharp critiques. Worth the read and listen!!!
