As NPR's senior foreign correspondent, Garrels has covered conflicts in Chechnya, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. She is renowned for the direct, down-to-earth reportage and her independent-minded insight into what she observes. One of only sixteen un-embedded American journalists who stayed in the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad throughout the American invasion, Garrels was uniquely placed to describe our latest war. Her Iraqi driver becomes her friend and confidant, often serving as her eyes and ears among the populace and taking her where no other reporter was able to penetrate. His opinions and poignant personal story provide a trenchant counterpoint to the headline news.--From publisher description.

I remember Anne Garrels as an NPR reporter, and I had great respect for her. Thus I trust this account of the disasters we brought upon the Iraqi people in our mistaken trust in W and his henchmen.

One of the better books around that discuss the run up to the second Iraq War and all the willful ignorance that led to the worst American foreign policy disaster quite possibly in our history.

One thing that stuck me the first time I read this book, and even more so years later the 2nd time, was how many Iraqis would say they were scared about what would come AFTER Saddam was disposed. They saw the falsehoods for the war and feared what forces would be unleashed upon their land.
