TO BUILD THE CASE FOR WAR IN IRAQ" by Peter Eisner and Knut Royce

TO BUILD THE CASE FOR WAR IN IRAQ" by Peter Eisner and Knut Royce. 3. Feels the need to stick his nose in Iraq's business and "improve" their government while bombing and completely destroying Iraq-it's obvious it's just an excuse to go to war. 4. Lies about there being NO terrorist attacks since 9/11, when there have been quite a few that he covers up or makes America forget about.

The so-called Italian letter is a package of allegedly forged documents . Peter Eisner, Knut Royce.

The so-called Italian letter is a package of allegedly forged documents that seem to be based on articles stolen from the Nigerian embassy in Rome in 2001. The document was nonetheless adopted by the Bush administration as a basis for going to war with Iraq, even though the letter has been widely dismissed by a variety of key players in the . Intelligence Community years before President Bush cited it in his 2003 State of the Union speech.

More than a decade after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, this investigative report on the Bush administration's march toward war is more relevant than ever. Timely and revealing, The Italian Letter provides explosive, historic insights for a greater understanding of the Iraq War and how the United States got there. This exclusive edition is updated to reflect the most recent developments.  The so-called Italian letter is a package of allegedly forged documents that seem to be based on articles stolen from the Nigerian embassy in Rome in 2001. The document was nonetheless adopted by the Bush administration as a basis for going to war with Iraq, even though the letter has been widely dismissed by a variety of key players in the U.S. Intelligence Community years before President Bush cited it in his 2003 State of the Union speech. There are few true stories with as much drama, intrigue, and mystery as that of the Italian Letter. Known all along by many in the U.S. intelligence community to have been a forgery, the Bush administration adopted the Italian Letter as a basis for going to war, making it the justification behind the rally for war.  With unparalleled reporting skills and harrowing analysis, the authors, Eisner, a veteran editor with the Washington Post and Newsday, and Royce, a legendary, Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter in Washington--have produced a groundbreaking, riveting work.  The Italian Letter takes readers from Italy, to Niger, to Iraq and into the Washington offices of the National Security Agency, The Central Intelligence Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency and inside the White House itself, demonstrating that this was not a case of finding out too late that certain intelligence information was faulty. Rather, with calculation and single-minded purpose, the Bush administration used information it knew was questionable to convince Congress and the American public that Saddam Hussein was seeking materials to make a nuclear bomb.  The book, wrote Lawrence Wilkerson, former chief of staff to Colin Powell, conveys "the duplicity, subterfuge, propaganda, and outright lies that helped sell many Americans on the need to invade Iraq. Read the book and weep for our democracy." 
  • I consider myself fairly well informed, but there was so much in this truly outstanding book that I did not know. I learned a great deal. Then again, the authors are Peter Eisner and Knut Royce, two of the best investigative journalists in America. Both of these guys have been delivering the goods and the big stories for years.

  • Good

  • Good book.

  • Blow by blow account of how to construct a lie and get it delivered to the public by a president. Very well written account of the infamous `sixteen words' in Bush's 2003 state of the union address. This is the way the Mafia would use our intelligence agencies.

    It also includes a quick reference time line of events for those amount us who do not posses great faculties of memory.

  • Great book by the authors that provides insight into the history behind the fabrications used to justify the invasion of Iraq in 2003 of which over 11 years later is still impacting the Iraqi people and the world.

  • Not much here
    Criminals still not in prison thanks to fraudulent Obama/Holder

  • This is absolute garbage. The book is riddled with grammatical and spelling errors, as well as sentences that don't make sense. I don't know if it was just written in a sloppy fashion, or if it was quickly turned into an e-book and not edited, but I want my money back.

  • I have read most of the books on how and why the US went into Iraq and how badly we botched it up once we got there. I found this book interesting and there was some valuable new information, but I came away knowing little about the Italian letter I hadn't already read elsewhere. The central question of who wrote it and why went unanswered, beyond the belief that it originated within SISMI. It's an interesting book if you don't know the story, but unsatisfying if you do and desire to know more.
