    true facts/not bush facts

    Very interesting for those who want to know the side of things the Bush administration has left out(FACTS). Most of these points have already been talked or written about but still a great read if you're a Bush fan! With as much time that has been put into misleading people, it can't hurt to hear this side over and over again too. Only those people who don't want to face reality would think this book wasn't a valuable piece of literature.

    Great Fiction

    This work is a precipitant of an author who has done it all in local journalism and has nothing left to do except bash politicians. Everything contained within the covers has been seen somewhere else in print or out of the mouths of the talking heads. The more I read, the more it's clear that trained expertise is missing from the author, e.g. Katrina analysis. Anyone who has ever worked with disaster recovery knows that responsibility is incumbent first upon local authorities [mayor], then state [governor/adjutant general] and FINALLY federal, not the other way around as implied by this work. The fed's have neither the area specifics information nor the management talent for rapid results.

    Kudos to Frank Rich

    Excellent illumination of this Administration's behind the curtain trickery. If only more Americans could see, as does Rich, perhaps America could be more enlightened.

    What did Bush know and when did he know it?

    What raises this book above all the others of its ilk is the 'Time-Line' section. Therein, with a strong commitment to documentation, Rich lays out what Bush and the champions of the Iraq war knew and when they knew it. What becomes unmistakably clear is that prior to his 2003 State of the Union address, the president had in hand, intelligence that put to lie his soon-to-be-made claims that Saddam was in league with Al Qaeda and that the dictator had sought uranium from Niger. The same intelligence also raised serious questions about Saddam's possession of WMD. In other words, what Rich shows us is that Bush unquestionably misled us into war by 'cherry-picking' whatever intelligence helped him make the case, while discarding far more compelling evidence that Saddam was no threat to us or to his neighbors. So devastating is the 'Time-Line' section of Rich's text that it would easily be used as a basis for impeaching Bush and removing him from office.

    Extremely informative

    Detailed, informative, and the truth is what this book is based on the actions of the bush administration and their use of propaganda towards the American public. It shows how well and skilled this administration went towards selling the Iraq War and how ignorant media outlets were in facilitating his agenda without facts. This book is truley about the sale of Truthiness.

    Disjointed diatribe

    Accusation as proof, supposition as fact...a common tactic being employed by the pack member trying for their bite at the carcass. The entire premise undone by irrational, unsubstantiated motive theories. Wouldn't make it as a political thriller...shrill and sophomoric.

    It may not be new information, but Frank Rich has a great way of illuminating it.

    Frank Rich knows how to bring out the real truth about so much!

    Outstanding expose of the real story going on in the White House and behind closed doors throughout the government on Iraq and our overall defense situation. I should know because I just left the Department of Justice and Bush political hacks were busy there changing statistics and slanting the truth on so many critical law enforcement issues.

    It's Fahrenheit 9/11 redux

    New York Times op-ed columnist Frank Rich... That kind of says it all, doesn't it? The left-wing media has pulled out all the stops when they spew their vitriolic hatred of Bush, whether they use 'real' facts or invent their own. Bush has admittedly make some historic blunders since 9/11, including Iraq, imho, but I think sometimes he and his administration are given too much credit (read: blame) for everything that happens. North Korea is Bush's fault too, of course, even tho Kim Jong Il cheerfully signed an agreement with Bill Clinton in 1994, took our $$, and STILL proceeded with his nuclear ambitions. No president does everything right. Bush doesn't do everything wrong.

    Another AntiBush Book

    It is no shock that during this midterm election there is another anti Bush book and it comes to surprise it is written by a New York Times reporter. They are all left wing journalists who will stop at nothing to spread their propaganda.
