    Thomas Ricks image from the Bangor Daily News Fiasco offers a very detailed look into the disaster that has been the US invasion of Iraq For those of us who have readthan a few books on the subject there is an unavoidable repetition of information seen elsewhere, but th

    Although there is lots of detail provided in this aptly titled book about the fiasco that has been the US adventure in Iraq, that isn t really the main point of this book or the reason why anyone should read it It is also not the main lesson to be gained from reading it This

    When Fiasco first came out naturally there were many opinions on it, ranging from fantastic to trash I kept some of the bad reviews I d seen and heard in mind as I read this book, trying to look for evidence to prove those bad reviews were well founded Frankly, I didn t find any su
