Deftly separating truth from propaganda, Target Iraq is a hard-hitting expose of the harsh realities and consequences of the pending war and the media's failure to present the full spectrum of issues to the public. Target Iraq will figure prominently in the national debate about the war against Iraq. Included are appendices by the Institute for Public Accuracy and FAIR -- Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting -- that provide a line-by line analysis of Bush's key October speech to Congress, the UN Security Council resolution, and other related speeches and documents.
