Bamboozeled by fear
How did the American people allow this to happen? Thomas Ricks writes about a time that all Americans should be ashamed of. When the military can't hold a line of positive things about this war we shouldn't be in Iraq. The 2000 election was a fiasco and it has never stopped. This book is well written and researched - read it and you will shed tears of pain for the lost children - our children.
