Brighter Than the Baghdad Sunby Shyam Bhatia
Synopses & Reviews
In Brighter Than the Baghdad Sun, award–winning journalists and Middle East experts Shyam Bhatia and Daniel McGrory expose for the first time the truth about Saddam Hussein's secret race to make a nuclear bomb—and the role the Clinton-Gore administration has played in allowing it to happen.
Book News Annotation:
Bhatia (Middle East correspondent, Observer) and McGrory (London Times) argue that the Clinton administration's policies have allowed Hussein to continue his project of developing nuclear weaponry. The book focuses on the details of the Iraqi weapons program and the domestic troubles underlying Clinton's foreign policy. It includes allegations of assassination attempts, failed weapons inspection programs, and personal excess. No bibliography.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Using the best sources-- many of whom spoke at the risk of their lives-- investigative reporters, Shyam Bhatia and Dan McGrory, pull back the veil on the Iraqi nuclear threat.
After talking to Iraqi defectors who spoke at the risk of their lives, respected journalists present evidence that Saddam Hussein won't rest until Iraq becomes a nuclear threat to the West--a threat, they argue, that has been aided by the Clinton Administration's dismantling of U.N. weapons inspections.
