War stories : Operation Iraqi Freedom by Oliver North( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The mainstream media are trying to discredit our victory in Iraq by saying there was no reason to take out Saddam. But Oliver North knows better. He was there. Contrary to some of the media's willing inaccuracies, in War Stories: Operation Iraqi Freedom you'll witness: how an arsenal was provided to Saddam by so-called friends of the United States; evidence of equipment used to disperse chemical weapons; the uncovering of huge caches of Iraqi weapons stored in hospitals, schools, and mosques; evidence of terrorist bases and weapons in Iraq; and the connection between captured terrorists and Saddam's regime." "Embedded with Marine and Army units for FOX News Channel during Operation Iraqi Freedom, North (himself a decorated combat veteran) vividly tells the story his camera gave us glimpses of during the campaign to liberate Iraq. From the opening seconds of the war - when North witnessed the conflict's first American and British casualties - all the way to the takeover of Saddam's hometown of Tikrit, War Stories lets you see the war in Iraq not as the liberal media wants you to see it, but as it unfolded before the eyes of those who fought it."--Jacket

The undercover agent is plunged into a deadly underworld of North Korean espionage, Hezbollah terror and the sinister deception Iran uses to acquire nuclear weapons. Caught in a web of international intrigue that goes to the top of the U.S. government, Kruse is forced to confront the ultimate moral quandary: doing what's right when everything seems wrong."--
