Thoroughly enjoyed. Quite eye-opening and happy to have come across it.
Oh what a tangled web we weave, when the Bush dynasty decides to decieve! I know George Bush likes to say "you're either for us, or against us", but who's side is this guy on anyway? Unger does alot of research to answer this question. The Bush family is so in bed with the oil-rich Saudis, you really have to wonder. If Congress ever decides to seriously investigate Bush actions before and after 9/11, House of Bush may turn into a house of cards. This book is a must-read before anyone casts their votes in the upcoming elections.
While I am almost done listening to this book, I can already say it is by far the best book I have listened to . Clear,concise, it keeps your attention . It is a story that keeps moving and facts are presented well. I definitely will be listening to this book a second time. I keep stating the same issue after each book that I have listend to concerning the Bush administration. Where is the media..the "fair and balanced" new stories that would bring facts like these to the population? Without honest media we are not a democracy but given propaganda to mold public opinion any way the administration and the "paid" media wants us to think. I feel so sorry for the families that are losing their children to this war..but we have been there before..it was called Vietnam. As the adage goes...if one does not learn from history we are doomed to repeat it. Simply Audiobooks gives people the opportunity to listen to books and get the facts.In my car alot like so many people I am sure...
Frightening read. It continues to amaze me that this administration continues to get away with so much that others would be prosecuted for. Until the press stops being cowed by this current administration, they will continue to get away with anything they choose. This book is quite an eye opener, and will make you think.
The only problem I had with this is that I have alot less respect for the Bush family. I was already scraping the bottom with him anyway. I think the word is finally getting out about just how bad these people have been. IT IS ABOUT TIME. Great job on this book.
Fascinating background to U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, with plenty of references to date, time and sources of information. Highly revealing details about little known power brokers influencing American history. This book goes well beyond the documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11", which appears to have used "House of Bush, House of Saud" for much of its blueprint. Thought provoking, yet enjoyable.
This book could have been more objective but nevertheless it was very interesting and thought provoking.
A must read book. Well researched and well written.
Excellent. Very thought provoking. I wish more of this information would be published in the mainstream media so that the general public could be more educated.
