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.

Hitch never disappoints

To think that the Clintons are capable of the misdeeds alluded to in this essay is horrifying. If only a fraction is true it should send chills throughout ones being. I'm confident Hitchens has not mislead the reader.

Couldn't get through it

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

A more intelligent Hitchens admirer.


What was most disappointing about Christopher Hitchens and Douglas Brinkley (foreword) ’s story?

Too many strands and convoluted phraseology; a dissertation that was far too wordy and full of references to enjoy as an actual read... Didn't enjoy the little I heard at all. A few years ago I listened to most of his collected essays book but by the end I felt they sunk into word play and I lost the substance. There was obviously a lot of heartfelt angst about how Clinton had achieved so much but with so few ethics but I found Hitchens overwrought sentences sucked the life out of the meaning. I think I need to have a much higher IQ to 'enjoy' some of his writing.
