Words can't capture the casuistry contained in this wretched and evil book of war-mongering fabrications by an architect and a mouthpiece of the Iraq war. Atrocious and violently objectionable through and through.

Possibly the worst book I've read in quite a while.

The authors have a few good ideas, but lose them among rabid political rants and straight factual error. Did you know California was the biggest state in the union? Neither did I, but they seem to think so. They also believe the looting of the museums in Iraq to be "alleged" and are convinced the never found weapons of mass destruction that sparked off the invasion are still out there, somewhere. Or so it seems. Sometimes they are a bit unclear.

Although highly recommended by a neo-conservative friend of mine, Frum's ringing endorsement of the Bush doctrine is even shakier four years after publication. I hesitate to disparage Frum, but find his clearly drawn distinctions of "Good v Evil" hardly sustainable given the difficultly in implementing any Middle East policy. What parts I did read, however, proposed very sensible domestic policies to tighten our borders and diminish the potential for a terrorist attack on our own soil.

It was OK. Unsettling. Don't read it on a plane.

Great book. The former assistant secretary of defense, Richard Perle, lays out some subtle but essential points in understanding the war on terror.
