Reading List

Paul and I are, coincidentally, both reading about Iraq. He's reading this biography of the Victorian woman who was deeply involved in the creation of the modern Iraq and founded the Baghdad Museum, tragically looted during the escapades that I'm reading about. The "One-Percent Doctrine" refers to Cheney's statement that if there's even a one-percent chance that a threat is real, we need to respond as though it's a certainty. Lots of new-to-me information, especially about torture.
