Summary "In March 2003, Andrew Wilkie resigned from Australia's senior intelligence agency, ONA, in protest over the looming Iraq war. He was the only serving intelligence officer from the Coalition of the Willing - the US, the UK and Australia - to do so. The dramatic move was reported throughout the world." "In Axis of Deceit, Wilkie examines how the case for war was made in Washington, London and Canberra. With unique insight, he explains how the three governments routinely skewed, spun and fabricated the relevant intelligence. He warns of further crises, as more and more is demanded of Western intelligence agencies at the same time as increasing politicisation undermines their work. He also offers a rare glimpse into the world of international intelligence and life as a "spook"."--Jacket
