Frank Rich has begun a process that will be repeated by many in years to come - reconstructing the process by which the Bush 43 Administration led the country to war in Iraq. The painstaking process that Rich has used to produce his work is undeniable. Unfortunately, his anger drives a tone (perhaps justified) that can distract from the facts themselves. However if one puts aside Rich's edgey tone, it becomes hard to avoid the intensity of emotion that the book elicits by its nature. In the future, Congressional Hearings will do their job, and historians will do theirs. In that context, Rich's book will stand as an effort of distinct importance to those who want to know how things started in the words of those who spoke, with all the citations for easy reference. For now, you simply won't believe your ears.

This book offers a quite candid look at the policy of double-speak, the insincerity of this administration and the many sound-bytes that inflamed and called-to-arms a hell-storm that America will be dealing with for years to come. This is a compilation of all the greatest hits of the Bush Admin. talking points and the elaboration of its content from the Admin's highest ranking officials. The summation of this story is great..When some one tells you how hard he/she is working, he/she is probably pulling your leg. If this administration has achieved one thing, it is making sure the public will never trust its gov't again.
