Overview

In his most provocative and caustically funny book yet, Greg Palast, author of the national bestseller The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, once again gives us the straight scoop on the stories that Big Media won?t report. Digging up reams of documents marked ?secret? and ?confidential,? Palast provides the latest lowdown on Bush?s secret plans to seize Iraq?s oil, the fix planned for the 2008 election, who drowned New Orleans, and the horror and the humor of the War on Terror. With diligent detective work, moral outrage, and a keen sense of the absurd, Palast takes on the ?armed and dangerous clowns that rule us? as only he can.

This book's subtitle establishes its full-throated tone: "Who's Afraid of Osama Wolf? The Best Legal Whorehouse in Texas; The Coming Theft of the 2008 Election; No Child's Behind Left and Other Tales of Class Combat in a Dying Regime." Greg Palast's undercover reports in Harper's and web site venues have won him a reputation for spunk and resourcefulness. In Armed Madhouse, he pulls out all the stops to unleash a muckraker's attack on the Bush administration and its potential aftermath.
