Praise

“Setting out to prove that ‘every major assertion that our government put forward to justify the conquest of Iraq has proved false,’ this broadside (more akin to a long article than a short book) reviews the evidence (or lack thereof) for linking Iraq to al-Qaida and 9/11, and reveals what the authors say is the inflation of Iraq’s weapons capabilities and the erroneous assumptions about how long the war would take. Even sympathetic liberals may find the description of ‘the losing end of a long war of attrition’ to be overstating the case. The concise account by veteran journalist Robert Scheer, his son and Chaundhry, editors of AlterNet.org, deftly incorporates dozens of other media sources, including very recent materials like Gerald Posner’s Why America Slept.” –Publishers Weekly


“Highly readable and tightly argued, The Five Biggest Lies does more than devastatingly refute the mendacity of the Bush Administration’s Iraq policy. Christopher Scheer and his cohorts present a chilling portrait of the cabal of neo-cons who have commandeered American foreign policy, revealing the arrogance, assumptions, and contradictions that have had such disastrous consequences for our nation—and the world.” –Arianna Huffington


“Christopher Scheer and Robert Scheer have documented the depth of deception of all the president’s henchmen who misled America into war against Iraq. This book will become the required text for the coming wave of campus teach-ins and mass protests over US policy in Iraq. The Scheers have written the truth and the truth sets us free to reclaim our nation.” –Former United States Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio)
