The man who pushed America to war : the extraordinary life, adventures, and obsessions of Ahmed Chalabi by Aram Roston( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If anyone were to get the most credit for pushing the United States to war in Iraq, Ahmad Chalabi, a wealthy exile who spent most of his life out of Iraq, would certainly be a leading contender. A convicted felon and a fugitive from justice in Jordan, Chalabi managed to charm and influence the top leaders of the United States. Those leaders gave him United States government money, which he would, in turn, use to lobby them. He then rode America's immense power, harnessing it to his interests. More so than Bush or Cheney, Chalabi and his followers steered the United States toward its fateful position in Iraq. This investigative biography by an NBC journalist tells the story of Chalabi as a gifted MIT mathematician, to his misadventures in the Middle East, to the invasion of Iraq.--From publisher description
