It brings to life the people and ideas that created the Bush administrations war policy and led America to the Assassins Gatethe main point of entry into the American zone in Baghdad.   The Assassins Gate also describes the place of the war in American life: the ideological battles in Washington that led to chaos in Iraq, the ordeal of a fallen soldier s family, and the political culture of a country too bitterly polarized to realize such a vast and morally complex undertaking. George Packers best-selling first-person narrative combines the scope of an epic history with the depth and intimacy of a novel, creating a masterful account of Americas most controversial foreign venture since Vietnam.
