At least there's still one real American among us.
D. Webster
Just about every fundamental American principle, even biggies like the constitutional rule of law and the separation of powers, is under attack.
Salient
This book should be bought even if reading time is precious.

Format: Hardcover
Robert Parry's book accurately and, for those who count themselves as
lovers of liberty, excruciatingly delineates the deceitful, arrogant, and ironic rise of George W. Bush from military coward and failed businessman to President of the United States, via manipulation and coercion of the
highest court in the land. Parry's book goes on to reveal that Bush and his political cronies may well have been able to thwart the horrific events of 9/11 had they not been more concerned with personal power and blinded by their hatred of their political opposition. Once again, irony comes to the forefront, in that Bush is looked upon by the American people as a strong and forceful leader in the wake of 9/11, when Parry
shows that his bravado was nothing more than a flimsy facade created by a nervous and fearful media. And then, of course, comes the Iraq war, a war actually being fought for oil, but asking for the sacrifice of thousands of brave American soldiers being told they are fighting terrorism. But perhaps the most unforgivable and egregious act committed by George W. Bush during his reign, and revealed by Parry at great length and in minute detail, is Bush's flagrant and criminal disregard for the Constitution of the United States--in essence, making up his own rules as he sees fit, and interpreting the Constitution to suit his own purposes. Reading this book, I found myself asking the question time and time again, "why are we standing still for this, and not demanding reform?" I've since come to the conclusion that we, the American people, no longer deserve our country, and that we must accept whatever fate our lackadaisical attitude and behavior brings us. I commend and admire Robert Parry for having the courage to bring these sad and disastrous facts to light. At least there's still one real American among us.

If you are also tired of the DC spin then this is the book for you. Written by a team, family team, of honest to goodness investigative reporters who have documented the unbelievably long list of failed decisions, policies, executive orders, etc of this administration. The failures have come so fast, so sudden, so numerous we can hardly keep abreast. I plan to read this book at least once every year to never forget the many issues that the American public has been failed on. From even before 9/11 the problems were being planned. Today the mistakes are still coming at us, now the disaster in Iraq is being pushed aside to make room for the coming disaster in Iran. I recommend this book to all who question why we are where we are. The Parrys,father and sons team, have produced an excellent work in this book. Tired of the mind numbing politics and DC spin, then you'll want this book. Also if you really want to know the reason for Iranian distrust of US check out 'All the Shah's Men'. We have some bloody history!

The Parrys do their usual fine investigative reporting in this book Neck Deep. They connect the dots from early in GWB's career to the current fiasco we find ourselves in. This book should be bought even if reading time is precious. Save it for history if you have to, for that is what it is - history without the mainline media spin. The authors use some of their previously written articles to point out the previously mis-leading big media accounts of "facts" and their timely accounts of history. I plan to read it ever so often to remember how we really got into this mess. Buy it - then compare it to the spin of other "historians" and to what you see as truly happening.

As with everything Robert Parry attaches his name to, this is a Top Notch and thoroughly researched piece of investigative journalism. Since I agree with the other reviews posted before mine, I'll keep it short and advise you to read all of his other books, as well as direct you to visit his website at [...]

Format: Hardcover
The America that existed before 2000 is now basically in shambles. Just about every fundamental American principle, even biggies like the constitutional rule of law and the separation of powers, is under attack. Want more? Torture, secret prisons, warrantless spying - I could go on. Our reputation around the world, even in the eyes of our allies, has been ruined, and we are stuck in a bloody occupation of a foreign land that was no threat to us.

So what happened? (911 and/or GWB? Not so simple, as you'll see.) This is the question the book sets out to answer. If the United States is to recover, then it's important to examine exactly how and why we got into this mess in the first place. Veteran independent journalist Robert Parry of consortium news (.com) has written a book that does the best job by far I've ever seen (and I read a lot) of explaining how it happened.
Blame, most of all, a complicit mainstream media, and a right-wing media propaganda apparatus that together can basically trick many average citizens into believing things that simply aren't true - ie "Iraq has a massive weapons of mass destruction program," and "Saddam is in league with Al Qaeda" etc.

The thoroughness of the research presented here is easily worth five stars. It should come as no surprise that Mr. Parry could write such a book. He is the same man that first helped to expose the corruption in the Reagan administration re: Iran-contra. Not only is his book enlightening, it is quite an interesting read for anyone concerned with the course our government has taken since the 2000 selection.
