A War Against Truth
An Intimate Account of the Invasion of IraqBook - 2004
An acclaimed journalist who has covered the Middle East for decades -- and one of the few to have interviewed Saddam Hussein -- Paul William Roberts knows Iraq better than most. This is his exposi of the politics behind the recent war -- and the brutal reality the Iraqis experienced but the rest of the world didn't see. In Baghdad when the bombs started falling, Roberts witnesses the "shock and awe" campaign firsthand, mourns the loss of his friend's entire family, and escapes to Jordan, only to return two weeks later behind the American army. A scathing indictment of the Bush administration's new imperialism, "A War Against Truth recounts Robert's experiences in the newly "liberated" Iraq, where he meets looters selling priceless artifacts, interviews Tariq Aziz in hiding, and is interrogated by U.S. intelligence.
