In this volume, the author, an investigative journalist, takes a look behind the public story of President Bush's "war on terror" and into the lies and obsessions that led America into Iraq. He reveals the connections between early missteps in the hunt for Al Qaeda and disasters on the ground in Iraq. The book includes a new account of the author's pursuit of his breakthrough story on the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and of where, he believes, responsibility for the scandal ultimately lies. The author draws on sources at the highest levels of the American government and intelligence community, in foreign capitals, and on the battlefield for an unparalleled view of a crucial chapter in America's recent history.
