Summary "Filled with explosive revelations, Hubris is a narrative that takes the reader behind the scenes at the Bush White House, CIA, Pentagon, State Department, and Congress to disclose the controversial decisions and turf battles that occurred in the highest circles and most covert corners of the administration as officials planned and marketed the invasion of Iraq - and then sought to defend the war. Hubris connects the dots between George W. Bush's determination to get rid of Saddam Hussein, the role of neoconservaties in pushing the case for war, the manipulations of Iraqi exiles, and the outing of a CIA officer that led to the indictment of a top White House official. Written by veteran reporters Michael Isikoff and David Corn, it's the insider tale of how Bush took the country to war using faulty and fraudulent intelligence."
"Featuring dozens of unreported stories, Hubris is the book on the events that led the United States to war with Iraq. It's a news-making account of conspiracy, backstabbing, journalistic malfeasance, bureaucratic ineptitude, and, especially, arrogance"--BOOK JACKET
