Description: When America was attacked on 9/11, its citizens almost unanimously rallied behind its new, untested president as he went to war. What they didn't know at the time was that the Bush administration's highest priority would be to consolidate its own power at any cost. As only he can, "New York Times" columnist Frank Rich brilliantly and meticulously illuminates the White House's disturbing love affair with "truthiness." His step-by-step chronicle shows how the nation was misled into war in Iraq and how the bungled aftermath, a Washington leak, and a devastating hurricane at long last revealed the lies in a story that had been so effectively sold to the nation as God-given patriotic fact.
