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.
From the introductory theory that blogging is a modern analogue of the older concept of citizen journalism, and why that is important today to the extensivly documented case put forth, this is the Holy Grail of Plameologists.
A perfect introduction to the now-unfolding drama of the duplicity and manipulation used to take the US to war.
This will be required reading in High Schools ten years from now.
