Book recommendation...

Last night I had dinner with a friend who told me he was going out today to buy "Fiasco," the new book by Thomas Ricks detailing the events that led up to the Iraq War and the story of what happened after the invasion.

Ricks is senior Pentagon correspondent for the Washington Post.

Anyway, following the recommendation of my friend, I'm on my way to get a copy. I understand that much of the information in the Ricks book is already known. It is getting rave reviews because of the way he has put mountains of information into a coherent narrative.
