RUMSFELD'S WARS: The Arrogance of Power by ProQuest

VIEWS: 6 PAGES: 1

The author has drawn heavily on widely publicized secondary sources (mostly selective newspaper reports and other antiRumsfeld books) and stitched those accounts together with a disturbing number of undocumented suppositions, insinuations, and inferences that make the piece read more like a prosecutor's brief than a scholarly exposition. In his own preface, the author reports his disturbing conclusion that Iraq's possession of Weapons of Mass Destruction "was an idea manufactured by the civilian leadership in the Pentagon to justify the war" and that Donald Rumsfeld and subordinates "manipulated data and convinced the President of the United States of the necessity of invading Iraq."
