The Friday Freebie is where I share an online, open-access resource that I think readers might find interesting and useful. Each week, I will introduce a free resource that I think will be useful to teh angry Leftists – books, podcasts, web sites, etc. The aim is to compile a toolkit for understanding and advancing progressive ideals.
This week’s freebie rounds out our Bush Legacy Project (pending investigations and/or prosecutions). Author Ron Schalow contacted me this week to let me know that his book “Bullshit Artist: The 9/11 Leadership Myth” is now available for free online.
Schalow’s book is a biting commentary on the actions of the Bush administration’s actions around the time of the 9/11 attacks. He charts the timeline of events on that day, as well as how the Bush administration worked in the days after the event to create a public perception of decisive leadership.
You can read Schalow’s book here – the for-sale version has the footnotes providing sources for all of Schalow’s information about the events. It’s a refreshing antidote to these types of claims – arguing that when the most obvious, serious opportunity for protecting the national security in the past eight years took place, the Bush administration struggled to get the job done, before and during that event.
