Secret History Of The Iraq War


Bodansky-the director of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare for over a decade-shares the most detailed, fascinating and convincing account of the most controversial war of our times. From The Publisher: In the months leading up to March 2003, fresh from its swift and heady victory in Afghanistan, the Bush administration mobilized the United States armed forces to overthrow the government of Iraq.

And yet neither peace nor democracy has taken hold in Iraq; instead the country has plunged into terrorist insurgency and guerrilla warfare, with no end in sight. What went wrong?In The Secret History of the Iraq War, bestselling author Yossef Bodansky offers an astonishing new account of the war and its aftermath – a war that was doomed from the start, he argues, by the massive and systemic failures of the American intelligence community.

He is the longtime director of research at the International Strategic Studies Association and
