Written By: James Risen

Narrated By: Boyd Gaines

Date: January 2006

Duration: 5 hours 0 minutes


James Risen has broken story after story on the abuses of power of the Bush administration.

From warrantless wiretapping to secret financial data mining to the CIA's rogue operations, he has shown again and again that the executive branch has dangerously overreached, repudiated checks and balances on its power, and maintained secrecy even with its allies in Congress. In no small part thanks to Risen and State of War, the 'secret history' of the Bush years has now come partially into view.

In a new epilogue for the paperback edition, Risen describes the two-front war that President Bush is now fighting: at home against Congress and the Supreme Court, as his administration is increasingly reined in from its abuses; and in the Middle East, where George W. Bush's great gamble to bring a democratic revolution is failing radically. We must learn the lessons of Risen's history now, before it is too late.

    Can there be any doubt that the current administration views everything through political glasses, and can't manage it's way out of a wet paper bag. The damage that this administration has done to our intelligence apparatus -- which has already been severely crippled and mislead during the past two decades -- is nothing short of criminal.

    Help! After listening to this one, you'll be convinced that our country might be better off turning our intellengence gathering agency management over to Maxwell Smart and Agent 99. At least in Get Smart they had the Cone of Silence going for them. James Risen's meticulous research and tell-all book shows how the Bush administration has turned the CIA organization into utter KAOS! The behind the scenes scoop on Afganistan and Iran are particularly interesting.
