Very short book on the career and exploits of Douglas Feith, the man that headed the ominously named Office of Special Plans within the Pentagon during the Bush administration, and played a key role in fabricating the intelligence that led the United States to war with Iraq. The pieces in the book are taken from the posts of liberal blogs during and after the lead up to the war. Some are very short--a page or two--and some are a little longer. As you can imagine, some are better than others as well. Nonetheless, it provides a good timeline of the Bush administration's efforts to bring the country to war, if not shedding as much light on Feith and his unique role as you might wish. I got my copy for free, so I don't mind, but I don't think it's probably worth shelling out money for, especially since most of this material is probably still available on the internet.
