THE tome on the Iraq War (according to Salon, anyway)


The Assassins’ Gate: America in Iraq is the best book about the Iraq war yet, according to Salon. George Packer, the author, apparently covered everything from the corridors of power in the White House and the Pentagon to individual American units and Baghdad slum-dwellers. I haven’t read the book yet, though I probably will, but the review on its own makes for an interesting read about just what a fiasco the war has become.

You have to go through Salon’s day pass drivel to read the review, which means watching a trailer for soe Cameron Diaz drivelfest, but just turn down the volume and give it a minute. 🙂
