    The Hoover Institution - Hoover Institution
    "Bush lied, people died"; "Bush came into office intent on launching a war in Iraq"; "There was no plan for postwar Iraq" are just three charges in the prevailing narrative that has emerged since the beginning of the Iraq war.In refuting them, Doug Feith offers a firsthand insight into the decision-making process at the Pentagon in the lead-up to the war and during its first few years.He also discusses the wars greatest blunders - failure to provide adequate security after Saddam's fall and the decision to maintain an occupation government in Iraq for over a year - as well as the tremendous shortcomings in pre-war intelligence.Finally, almost seven years after the September 11 attacks, he addresses whether the United States government is changing fast enough to meet the challenges of the twenty-first century security environment - Hoover Institution
