Hoodwinked: The Documents That Reveal How Bush Sold Us a Warby John Prados
As the world concludes that President Bush had little justification for his war on Iraq, Hoodwinked makes publicly available for the first time the primary source documents that show how intelligence on Iraq was consistently distorted, manipulated, and ignored by the administration. Compiled by National Security Archive analyst John Prados, these documents are reproduced, fully annotated, and placed in the context of a detailed narrative of the events leading up to the conflict. Expanded sections examine the four most contentious issues: the Iraqi nuclear program, unmanned aerial vehicles, uranium from Niger, and the question of Saddam Hussein's links to Al Qaeda and 9/11. Via these "smoking gun" documents, Prados offers readers a firsthand view of what may be the biggest government deception since Watergate, bringing out incontrovertible evidence that we were had.
