Critical

Christopher Buckley on The Way of the World

Suskind is a brilliant reporter and his investigation into the post-9/11, pre-Iraq war period makes you think you’re reading about it for the first time. He also nails a very depressing fact, namely that, as we were preparing to go into Iraq in order to neutralize Saddam’s WMD, British intelligence had absolutely established beyond doubt that there were no WMDs; what’s more, that MI-6 passed this critical information on to the White House—where it was ignored. It’s damning. Give this man another Pulitzer Prize.
