Book review

WIIIAI reads Ron Suskind's The One Percent Doctrine, suggesting that you and I may not want to. WIIIAI suggests that the reliance on anonymous sources makes one wonder how much of what it "reveals" about Bush and Cheney is really true:
Like a George Bush speech, it's likely to be believed by the sorts of people who are inclined to believe it, but not to convince anyone else.
As far as I'm concerned, there is way more than enough in the public record, including their own speeches and actions, to impeach, indict and impale Bush, Cheney, and most of their top aides, without having to resort to anonymous sources. Like WIIIAI, I have requested the book from my local library, but based on his review, I'll probably only read it if I don't have something better to read at the time.
