Book News Annotation:

In contrast to media attention to Clinton's prevarications regarding the Lewinsky affair, President George W. Bush rarely receives opprobrium from the corporate press for his tortured relationship with the truth. Perhaps this is because, as editor Barrett (general editor of www.bushwatch.com) argues, his lying is part of an agenda aimed at creating a state that serves the global needs and desires of corporations. He brings together 22 essays from lawyers, academics, journalists, and other contributors, each exploring Bush administration mendacity in a specific foreign or domestic thematic area. Concluding contributions list the Bush administration's "50 most telling lies" (a necessarily subjective list) and a consideration of the danger of Bush lies to American ideals.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Lies covered include * Iraq and Weapons of Mass Destruction * Foreign Policy * Environment & Energy * Health & Science * The Use and Abuse of Religion * Education * Women and Minority Policies * National Security & 9/11 * Bush Campaign Lies, and * Pre-Presidential Lies, including Bushms experiences with drunk driving and the controversies and inconsistencies of his National Guard service.
