"Dennett's book describes, from the inside, the birth of a movement to hold top US officials to the rule of law. The eventual success of that movement will be furthered by the success of this remarkable book. Dennett has done us a great service, first by her work and now by her chronicling of it."--David Swanson, cofounder of AfterDowningStreet.org and author of Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union
"Charlotte Dennett--one of the gutsiest women in America--has written an energized, no-holds-barred account of her efforts to hold our leaders criminally accountable for shredding the Constitution. This is a woman who is not scared to call illegality by its true name and who believes in the rule of law the way the Founders intended. The 'accountability' movement deserves broad attention and deep support from across the political spectrum and this book is an unmissable part of its story."--Naomi Wolf, bestselling author of The End of America and Give Me Liberty
"In November 2008, after an 18-month study, the Senate Armed Services Committee concluded, without dissent, that President Bush's Executive Memorandum of Feb. 7, 2002 'opened the door' to the use of torture techniques--crimes under U.S. and international law. And the corporate media yawned. I, for one, am grateful that Charlotte Dennett is not yawning. Although it has become a benighted view in Washington that everyone is accountable under the law, Dennett is in hot pursuit of criminals-in-chief and their cronies to bring them to justice. You ought to read this book."--Ray McGovern, Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS)
"George Bush took America to war in Iraq on a lie, causing incalcuable death, horror, and suffering. In this very important and consequential book, Charlotte Dennett, a true American patriot who has been on the front lines of trying to bring Bush to justice, informs all who care deeply about this country what has to be done so that it never happens again."--Vince Bugliosi, bestselling author of The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder

Gosh, I thought this book would be more captivating than it was. The prose is dry, dry, dry, and the book itself offers little that is not already public knowledge. Read morePublished on February 23, 2011 by booktalk29
