The following is an overview of EMN Director Dennis Fritz’s new book titled Deadly Betrayal: The Truth of Why We Invaded Iraq.
Published on the 20th anniversary of the first Iraq war, Deadly Betrayal documents the truth of why a cabal of Pentagon Advisors in the George W. Bush Administration created a fabricated justification to attack Iraq and how they did it.
The book provides a detailed and first-hand account of how the Pentagon cabal strategized to manipulate intelligence, pressure the United Nations, force a Congressional authorization for the use of force through political threats, and scare the American people after 9/11 into supporting an attack on Iraq.
Authored by a Pentagon “Insider” and retired 28-year top senior enlisted leader, Command Chief Master Sergeant, Retired, Dennis Fritz worked directly for and advised some of the most senior General Officers in the Department of Defense, including the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Richard B. Myers, who served as Chairman during the height of the Iraq War. After military retirement, Fritz found himself inside Donald Rumsfeld’s Pentagon working for Douglas Feith, the Under Secretary of Defense for Policy and key architect of the case for war against Iraq. He was detailed to the Pentagon as a contracted Research Fellow and Analyst on a special project to gather and review all Iraqi Pre-War Planning Documents for declassification. Through his access to thousands of declassified handwritten personal notes, documents, and Pentagon’s internal conversations, the truth of why America invaded Iraq is revealed.
