Reese Erlich was at Google to promote his book The Iran Agenda and though I was too late to get a copy of it, he had a few copies of this book for sale, so I got one for $10. It was published just before the U.S. went in Iraq, so the tone throughout is of impending war with still a fleeting hope for peace. It all seems so long ago.

A long laundry list of the lies perpetrated by the Bush administration as it built its case against Saddam Hussein and how the media were in on it.

As I was living in Australia trying to find a more balanced, or at least objective look at what was happening and what an "invasion" would mean.

Covers how the media controls peoples' thinking and reactions along with the politicians using the media to persuade US people that Iraq War is good. Excellent section of arguments against Pres. Bush's claims
it's not like it's wrong; it's just that how many anti-Iraq war texts did we need during the bush regime?
Excellent and informative.
