Tomgram: Mark Danner on the Third Act in Iraq

For Part 1 of Mark Danner's "Iraq: The War of the Imagination," click here.

This is certainly one of the longest pieces the New York Review of Books has ever run in a single issue. (It will appear in the December 21st issue, soon on the newsstands.) It won't even fit in the Tomdispatch "shell" and so I'm proud to post it, with the kind permission of the editors of the New York Review of Books, as an instant two-part piece.

I couldn't send along a better journalist -- or writer -- to accompany you. will return on Monday afternoon, November 27th, with a week of genuine surprises, part of a explosive special book project long underway at the site. Look for it. Tom

Here is DiRita's "Hilton Speech" as quoted to Woodward by an army colonel, Paul Hughes:
