"Deepak Tripathi provides a clear-eyed analysis of how George W. Bush's foreign policy, especially his wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, have made us more vulnerable to terrorism. A must-read for all who wish to reverse the dangerous Bush legacy."--Marjorie Cohn, immediate past president, National Lawyers Guild; professor, Thomas Jefferson School of Law; and coauthor, "Rules of Disengagement: The Politics and Honor of Military Dissent"
