  • The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War

    Hubris

    The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War On the fifth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, President Bush took the occasion to claim success in the "war on terror" and defend his decision to invade Iraq. Now a new book has been released with new details of what was happening inside the White House in the run-up to the invasion. It’s called "Hubris: The Inside Story of Spin, Scandal, and the Selling of the Iraq War." The book has already made headlines for exposing former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage was the White House source who outed CIA operative Valerie Plame Wilson. We spend the hour with the co-authors of the book, journalists Michael Isikoff of Newsweek and David Corn of The Nation. [includes rush transcript]
