Hoodwinked: The Documents That Reveal How Bush Sold Us a War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In America, the wife of the former ambassador who exposed George Bush’s sixteen-word State of the Union fib about uranium from Niger, is now being harassed by allies of the administration. In Britain, the scientist who blew the whistle on Tony Blair has been driven to suicide.

For all of us who, thanks to these whistle-blowers, now realize that we have been hoodwinked and want to understand exactly how, national security analyst John Prados has compiled and annotated the key source documents behind the selling of the Iraq war to the American public. As these CIA reports, Pentagon briefings, and other materials clearly show, Bush and his spokespeople were playing a crude game of three-card monte, claiming Iraqi ties to Al Qaeda, weapons of mass destruction, and imminent threats, which are here exposed as half-truths, exaggerations, and outright fabrications of a warmongering administration.

Prados, a noted historian of intelligence and national security, offers readers a firsthand view of incontrovertible evidence that we were had.

Synopsis:

Documents include: 1995 CIA debriefing of Iraqi defector and former weapons chief Hussein Kamel; October 2002 CIA White Paper/intelligence estimate; February 2003 text of Colin Powell's speech to the U.N. Security Council; and more.

About the Author

John Prados heads the National Security Archive’s Intelligence Documentation and Vietnam Projects, co-directs its Iraq Documentation Project, and is a Senior Fellow on national security affairs. He is the author of more than twenty books including Hoodwinked and The White House Tapes (both from The New Press). Among his books, Unwinnable War, Keepers of the Keys (on the National Security Council) and Combined Fleet Decoded (on intelligence in the Pacific in World War II) were each nominated for the Pulitzer Prize. He lives in Maryland.
