Bush Lied, People Died - Douglas Feith

"Bush lied, people died; Bush came into office intent on launching a war in Iraq; There was no plan for postwar Iraq are just three charges in the prevailing narrative that has emerged since the beginning of the Iraq war. In refuting them, Doug Feith offers a firsthand insight into the decision-making process at the Pentagon in the lead-up to the war and during its first few years. He also discusses the wars greatest blunders failure to provide adequate security after Saddams fall and the decision to maintain an occupation government in Iraq for over a year as well as the tremendous shortcomings in pre-war intelligence. Finally, almost seven years after the September 11 attacks, he addresses whether the United States government is changing fast enough to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century security environment.
