'Christopher Scheer, Robert Scheer, and Lakshmi Chaudhry have documented the depth of deception of all the president's henchmen who misled America into war against Iraq. The book will become the required test for the coming wave of campus teach-ins and mass protests over U.S. policy in Iraq. The authors have written the truth, and the truth sets us free to reclaim our nation.' - U.S. Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich'If you ever doubted that George W's push for war in Iraq was anything but bushwa, this book will eliminate your doubts.' - Jim Hightower, author of Thieves in High Places: They've Stolen Our Country and It's Time to Take It BackThe Five Biggest Lies Bush Told Us About Iraq is the comprehensive source on the administration's campaign of disinformation before, during, and after the second Gulf War. From the careful linking of Saddam Hussein with Al Qaeda, to the WMD canard, to the September 2003 damage-control sideshow. AlterNet's Christopher Scheer and Lakshmi Chaudhry team up with renowned journalist Robert Scheer to take the full measure of official deception.The Bush administration not only lied, the authors conclude the pattern of obfuscation, misstatement, and half-retraction amounted to a devious entrapment of America and the world. With US soldiers losing their lives daily under increasingly dehumanising circumstances, Bush's ongoing doublespeak is outrageous. In the authors' words: 'The Bush administration continues to stand firm on the bodies of its own soldiers, who are paying a high price for its lack of reason.'
