Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Horowitz collaborates with his FrontPage Magazine coeditor Johnson in a vitriolic attack on the left's cowardly betrayal of the American cause, singling out the antiwar stances of John Edwards, Al Gore and Nancy Pelosi for special reproach. According to the authors, a nation divided during wartime is a nation that invites its own defeat, and they argue that through ignorance and design, Democrats have obstructed presidential policy, undermined American security and continually failed to grasp the nature of the Islamofascist threat. Cataloguing Democratic miscalculations from the Carter administration on, the book asserts that Carter encouraged the Iranian revolution, Clinton fatally ignored bin Laden and Bush's wiretapping program was perniciously leaked to the New York Times. Their earnest moralizing overshadows these compelling fact patterns as Horowitz and Johnson omit intellectual or historical contextualization that might ratchet down the fever pitch of their argument; sadly, this sensationalism comes at the expense of some truly effective excoriations of liberal figures—particularly a brutal and delicious takedown of Frank Rich.

Review

Party of Defeat is a well-documented and disturbing account of the unprecedented attacks by leaders of the Democratic Party on a war they supported and then turned their backs on. In a democracy, criticism of war policy is legitimate and necessary. But deliberate undermining of a war policy, the authors urge, is another matter entirely. Every American concerned about the future of their country in the war on terror should consider the arguments in this book. --Senators Jim Bunning, Tom Coburn, James Inhofe, Jon Kyl, Jeff Sessions, Rick Santorum; Representatives Ginny Brown-Waite, Howard Coble, David Dreier, Peter Hoekstra, Peter King, Howard Buck McKeon, Mike Pence, Ed Royce, Jim Saxton, John Shadegg, Lamar S<br /><br />Party of Defeat is an eye-opening account of one of the greatest political betrayals in American history: the unprecedented attack by leaders of an opposition party on a war they authorized and on America s commander-in-chief while America s troops were still in harm s way. --Sean Hannity

The Democratic Party leader, Franklin D. Roosevelt, helped to save civilization during WWII. Sadly, our current Democrats are often dishonest pacifists who constantly apologize for being American. They are back stabbers who never hesitate to blame their own country for the murderous rage of our enemies. To be blunt: far too many Democrats are self hating Americans. This state of mind is especially dangerous while we are engaged in an existential struggle to the death against Islamic nihilism. David Horowitz and Ben Johnson painstakingly reveal the extent of their subconscious betrayal of the United States. And please note that I'm distinguishing between subconscious and overt betrayal. These people are deluding themselves to the point where they are no longer in touch with reality. They now embrace a cultural milieu built on the quicksand of postmodernist fantasy.

"Party of Defeat" is a harsh reminder of just how important is the near future elections. I am utterly convinced that the country is doomed if the Democrats capture the White House. You are likely to come to the same conclusion after reading this important book. After all, Senator Joseph Lieberman, for all practical purposes, has been excommunicated. Only the tacitly traitorous remain.

With clarity and logic, together with detailed documented facts, Horowitz and Johnson trace the history of terrorism in America, and the responses of Democratic leaders to the nation's decision to defend herself decisively. Initially, Democrats recognized the threat, but eventually turned on the very decisions they had made, and the logic they followed, to knife our President and our military in the back. This recounting of the history of events up to 9/11 and subsequently shouldn't even be necessary. Anyone who has kept his eyes and ears open is aware of the facts. But many Americans insist on being willfully ignorant. Democrats have chosen to engage in treasonous actions for political gain.

The two authors point out that the rationale for the invasion of Iraq was based, not on the likelihood of Weapons of Mass Destruction existing in Iraq at the time, but on the evident intent and actions of Saddam to pursue the production of such weapons, and use them. And in addition, Saddam used WMD on his own people, killing hundreds of thousands, and the Iranians. Facts that show this are outlined clearly. Saddam had been given a truce, but the condition was that he would agree not to pursue WMD, and repeatedly Saddam broke this truce. The United States was patient for many years. Clinton saw the need to deal with him and said so. We also became aware that Saddam WAS cooperating with al Qaeda in particular, and terrorists in general. He was also moving with full steam to develop the very weapons programs he had agreed not to pursue. Going into Iraq was NOT for the purpose of harming the nation or the Iraqi people. It was strictly for the purpose of getting Saddam out of power. Numerous attempts to get him to comply with his treaty or step down and go into exile failed.

David Horowitz is waging his own war against the political correctness of the left wing that has run amok! As always his work is well documented and should be read by every American. The looney left has taken control of the Democratic Party and it would appear that many Democrats are not aware that this is so. Look what they did to Joe Lieberman who speaks for most of Middle America! Wake up!

In this thoroughly researched and heavily footnoted book, Horowitz and Johnson set forth and explicate with exacting precision the relentless campaign the American Left and the Democratic Party have pursued to discredit George W. Bush and the War on Islamic Fascism. Unfortunately many, if not most Americans have forgotten the details of how the Democrats and the Left have undermined our country's response to Islamic radicals beginning with the Carter administration.

The authors clearly organize their thesis into 5 sections: The Path to 9-11, The Response to 9-11, Why America Went to War, The War Against the War, and Conclusion. They demonstrate with unassailable factual narrative how Presidents Carter and Clinton, in concert with an anti-war leftist establishment and willing accomplices both in the mainstream media and the Democratic Party refused to confront our enemies, leading inexorably to the 9-11 attacks.

This was itself inexcusable, but it was unfortunately only a prelude to the shocking and unprecedented betrayal of our forces in the field - first in Afghanistan, then in Iraq. The Democrats first voted to authorize military action in Iraq using the same intelligence information the President had at his disposal, and then not only rescinded their support of our military while they were actively engaged in battle, but launched a full-scale political attack on their commander-in-chief, branding him a liar and a war criminal. This despicable and treasonous behavior has fractured America's resolve, damaged our troops' morale, and weakened the President's ability to prosecute the war. Top-ranking Democratic leaders have demonstrated by their statements and actions that they fail utterly to understand the nature of this war and its implications.
