What I Heard About Iraq

"On September 11, 2001, six hours after the attacks, I heard that Donald Rumsfeld said that it might be an opportunity to "hit" Iraq. I heard that he said: "Go massive. Sweep it all up. Things related and not."

"I heard that Condoleezza Rice asked: "How do you capitalize on these opportunities?"

"I heard the Pentagon spokesman say that 95% of the Iraqi casualties were "military-age males."

"I heard the Red Cross say that casualties were so high that the hospitals had stopped counting.

"I heard that this was the first American president in wartime who had never attended a funeral for a dead soldier. I heard that photographs of the flag-draped coffins returning home were banned. I heard that the Pentagon had renamed body bags "transfer tubes.""

Verso's new release, What I Heard About Iraq, uses the voices of the war-mongers themselves to create a disturbing montage of a conflict gone horribly wrong.

It's all laid out in Bob Woodward's Plan of Attack.
