Hubris connects the dots between George W. Bush's determination to get rid of Saddam Hussein, the role of neoconservatives in pushing the case for war, and the outing of a CIA officer, which led to the indictment of a top White House official. It's a news-making account of conspiracy, backstabbing, ineptitude, and, perhaps most especially, arrogance.

"Many critics of the Iraq War have highlighted the ideological drive behind the invasion. Fewer have grappled with the more complex question of why it was impossible for skeptics, doubters, and more scrupulous analysts to stop it. Isikoff and Corn enable us to understand better how this devastating policy tragedy played out." (The Washington Post's Book World)

As I read more about the Iraq War and how President Bush and his administration tried to sell the public that we needed to go to war, "Hubris" was a upsetting read. It is not because the book was poorly written, but it just made me upset how much false advertising there was at supporting this war.
The White House made us all gullible at supporting something that wasn't there in the first place. It just makes you wonder on how many other wars wasn't necessary to march to.
It is illegal to shout out fire in a crowded theater as a joke. George W. Bush pretty much hoaxed the entire world on the Iraq War.
