Frontier Justice: Weapons of Mass Destruction and the Bushwhacking of America (Politics in Context)

Frontier Justice: Weapons of Mass Destruction and the Bushwhacking of America (Politics in Context) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since before September 11, the Bush presidency has been dominated by a single strategy ? national security through global domination. Frontier Justice exposes the fraudulent manner in which this scheme of world hegemony has been sold to Congress and the American people, especially through the "Big Lie" about the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. Ritter dissects this myth and reveals how Bush carried out the international equivalent of a west Texas lynch mob, delving out his own brand of frontier justice in the Middle East. Ritter ? a Republican who voted for Bush, a former Marine, a Gulf War I veteran, and a former U.N. weapons inspector ? attacks the policies of President Bush and begins the process of holding accountable those behind the "Big Lie." No stranger to controversy, Ritter also elaborates on his own role in this story, countering those who question his patriotism and putting into perspective the vicious attacks on his personal character that emerged during his efforts against the war. Frontier Justice is both a scathing indictment of Bush's foreign policy and a call for the American people to rise up in defense of their democratic republic by voting Bush out of office in 2004.
