| "Timmerman—an American
investigative reporter who lived in France for many years—is
no glib France-basher, happily acknowledging America- and
Israel-friendly actions by France during the Cold War,
mostly when François Mitterand was president...All of which
makes it even more fascinating to read Timmerman on Chirac’s
shabby little demimonde of bribes and bagmen. From the cash
stashes in Chirac’s office toilet to the Quai d’Orsay
diplomat caught poking through garbage bags outside a
Houston home to the classified U.S. and UN data that Chirac,
unforgivably, shared with Saddam right up to the invasion of
Iraq, Timmerman’s account makes the entire history of
Washington scandals from Watergate onward look like a Girl
Scout cookie drive."
– Bruce Bower, in the Hudson Review
|"A specialist in military and
strategic matters, Timmerman chronicles the extremely
close, three-decades-long association between Saddam
Hussein and his main booster in the West, [French
preesident Jacques] Chirac.
– John Rossant, in Business Week
Western journalists could have written this remarkable
book but Timmerman has the credentials...Running
throughout the book is the theme of corruption at top
levels of the French government where bribery, payoffs
and kickbacks are the order of the day, despite who is
in charge. French governments are run by people on the
take – and in the case of Iraq, the take was huge.
– Phil Brennan, at Newsmax.com
|"Timmerman's book of
revelations is an eye-opener. Even in the days of the
socialist François Mitterand, he argues, France looked upon
the U.S. as a dangerous rival."
– Arnold Beichman, writing in the Claremont Review
