Michael R. Gordon and Gen. Bernard E. Trainor provide the first comprehensive, inside account of arguably the most widely reported--yet least understood--war in American history: from the occupation, to the withdrawal of American troops. Based on an abundance of highly classified, still-secret government documents and firsthand knowledge of top American and Iraqi leaders; Gordon and Trainor provide a view unseen in the media coverage of the war in Iraq.

"..the most widely reported ..." I guess the authors are referring to the lockstep, robotic non-reportage so prevalent in America and the UK? The planted stories from Dick Cheney, or should I say "ghost written" stories from Cheney, with the byline of Judy Miller, formerly with the New York Times back then, now with an obscenely high paying job at the Manhattan Institute? The end result was oil flowing to China to supply the facilities and factories of the multinationals, with the Iraqi oil sold in US dollars, not Euros as they shifted to prior to the US invasion of that country. Better to read the SIGIR reports on all that embezzling and such by military officers, civilian contractors and senior NCOs, plus that missing $8.7 million in Iraqi oil funds, when the top three people in positions to oversee its movement were: Reuben Jeffery III (top financial guy at the Coalition Provisional Authority, later to become CEO of Rockefeller Financial Services), Daniel Zelikow, the managing director of that contract with/by JPMorgan Chase (the Rockefellers' bank), and his old college buddy, and head of the Federal Reserve Bank of NY, where those funds were meant to be kept on account, Timothy Geithner (first job: Kissinger & Associates, Henry being the long-term lackey of the Rockefeller family; recent job: Treasury Secretary w/the Obama Administration, and should be mentioned that Peter G. Peterson handpicked Geithner to follow him into the chair of the FRBNY, just as David Rockefeller once handpicked Peter G. Peterson to follow him as the director of the Council on Foreign Relations).
