Historians will get a running start on the Plame/CIA trial, and resulting political fallout, with Marcy Wheeler's new book, Anatomy of Deceit.
Wheeler charts the failure of the mass media to challenge the outing of a covert spy during wartime, and shows how they have re-invented themselves as internal public relations staff for the government.
With the book appearing this past week, the timing could not be better as it becomes available just as Libby comes to trial for obstruction of justice. Marcy is providing the most up-to-the-minute news of the trial through live blogging directly from the courthouse.
With meticulous attention to detail, thorough research of all available sources, and a drive to get the story right, this book is history in the making.
Claims about the ease of supporting a post war Iraq with its oil revenues go unchallenged. The myth of the so-called liberal main stream press is torpedoed.
The hard copy book shows what can be done by a group of individuals in this electronic work which is still drowning in paperwork. Just look at the organization of the chronology in this book when one reviews the organization of the chapters
I've been following this case for years, and I thought I knew a lot about it. But Wheeler's grasp of it just blows me away. For instance, she shows just how closely the Bush people worked with favored reporters like Judy Miller to sell the invasion of Iraq. (When Condi Rice made her infamous "mushroom cloud" statement, she was quoting nearly verbatim a passage of a piece Miller had written the night before and which Rice either saw online or in her morning dead-tree version of the NYT.)
You owe it to yourself to buy this book.
