Blogger Marcy Wheeler talked about her book, Anatomy of Deceit: How the Bush Administration Used the Media to Sell the Iraq War and Out a Spy, published by Vaster Books. She condemned the Bush administration, alleging that Vice President Cheney’s office deliberately “outed” CIA agent Valerie Plame, wife of former ambassador Joe Wilson. She also criticized the mainstream media for their complicity in promoting the administration’s rationale for war in Iraq, such as Iraq being on the verge of acquiring weapons of mass destruction. She responded to audience members' comments.

The Anatomy of Deceit is the first book published by Vaster Books, a joint venture of DailyKos and FireDog Lake. close
