Advance "Praise" For "War And Decision"

Surely, somebody out there likes former Undersecretary for Defense Douglas Feith?

Here are excerpts from two of the four blurbs on the back cover of his new book.

"The fact that the policy to which he contributed was flawed from the outset in no way diminishes the historical importance of this firsthand account." (Jean Edward Smith)

"Douglas Feith has written what will be a controversial book. It will certainly anger many readers because it takes a different position that most other accounts on the wisdom of going to war in Iraq, on what mistakes were made, and on what made them. But Feith's is a serious work, well-documented, that presents the best defense to date of the defining policy of the Bush presidency. It is a readable account that deserves to be read and its argument debated." (Robert Gallucci)
