Summary
"Seymour M. Hersh brings together reporting, along with new revelations, to answer the critical question of the last three years: how did America get from the clear morning when hijackers crashed airplanes into the World Trade Center and the Pentagon to a divisive and dirty war in Iraq?" "In Chain of Command, Hersh takes an unflinching look behind the public story of President Bush's "war on terror" and into the lies and obsessions that led America into Iraq."--BOOK JACKET
Summary
Looks at President George W. Bush's handling of the War on Terrorism, offering thoughts on such topics as intelligence failures, claims of weapons of mass destruction, and the scandal at Abu Graib Prison
