NPR has an interview with George Packer, author of The Assassin's Gate: America in Iraq on the wide array of books now out discussing the war in Iraq and what led us there. The common thread throughout is how Cheney and Rumsfeld bullied and plowed their way through, past or over anyone that offered up an alternative to their agenda.

Packer discusses Cobra II, Fiasco, State of Denial, Imperial Life in the Emerald City and The Prince of the Marshes. (All books and music purchased through the links provided help contribute to C&L).
