"Hubris is a narrative that tells the behind the scenes of story of events inside the White House, CIA, Pentagon, State Department and Congress as President Bush sold the country on the need to go to war against Iraq. It reveals how the Bush administration distorted, twisted, and embellished intelligence to present a thoroughly false picture that Iraq was a storehouse of weapons of mass destruction, was reconstituting its nuclear program, and had relationships with al Qaeda terrorists- despite significant doubts and dissents from numerous intelligence analysts and government experts." It also delves into the role of the news organizations in selling the idea and how White House officials undermined Iraq critics.
