About This Book
THE REAL STORY BEHIND THE INVASION OF IRAQ

Now an MSNBC Documentary, hosted by Rachel Maddow

Filled with news-making revelations that made it a New York Times bestseller, Hubris takes us behind the scenes at the White House, CIA, Pentagon, State Department, and Congress to show how George W. Bush came to invade Iraq - and how his administration struggled with the devastating fallout.

Hubris connects the dots between Bush's expletive-laden outbursts at Saddam Hussein, the bitter battles between the CIA and the White House, the fights within the intelligence community over Saddam's supposed weapons of mass destruction, the outing of an undercover CIA officer, and the Bush administration's misleading sales campaign for war. Written by veteran reporters Michael Isikoff and David Corn, this is an inside look at how a president took the nation to war using faulty and fraudulent intelligence. It's a dramatic page-turner and an intriguing account of conspiracy, backstabbing, bureaucratic ineptitude, journalistic malfeasance, and arrogance.

    In what has become the definitive book on the scandal engulfing the Clinton Presidency, Newsweek reporter Michael Isikoff shares the shocking details behind the most remarkable case of journalistic detective work since Woodward and Bernstein. Isikoff's gripping narrative reveals the inside story of his battle to enlighten America in the face of skeptical editors and the powerful White House spin machine. Against all odds, this investigative reporter tells the details of Clinton's personal and political life that have defined his second term and stunned the world.Not at all a right-wing attack dog, Michael Isikoff was driven by his journalistic ideals to uncover the Clinton scandal.

Isikoff reveals riveting details on Clinton's affairs with Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Monica Lewinsky through never-before-told anecdotes from characters ranging f
