The presidency of George W. Bush has led to the worst foreign policy decision in the history of the United States: the bloody, unwinnable war in Iraq. How did this happen? Bush's fateful decision was rooted in events that began decades ago, and until now this story has never been fully told. From Craig Unger, the author of the best-seller House of Bush, House of Saud, comes a comprehensive, deeply sourced, and chilling account of the secret relationship between neoconservative policy makers and the Christian Right, and how they assaulted the most vital safeguards of America's constitutional democracy while pushing the country into a catastrophic quagmire in the Middle East that is getting worse day by day.
Craig Unger knows how to get the big story - and this one is his most explosive yet. Through scores of interviews with figures in the Christian Right, the neoconservative movement, the Bush administration, and sources close to the Bush family, as well as intelligence agents in the CIA, the Pentagon, and Israel, Unger has assembled the most
comprehensive, provocative, and dramatic account of how and why George W. Bush took America to war in Iraq.
