Summary The "top undercover journalist in America and the funniest" (Randi Rhodes, Air America), hangs out the dirty underpants of the "armed and dangerous clowns that rule us." Feared from corporate suites to Osama's cave, Palast's old-style gumshoe detective work to dig out the info on the War on Terror, greed-dripping schemes to seize little nations with lots of oil, the hidden program to steal the 2008 election, and the media biases that keep it unreported are the meat and bones of this BBC television reporter's new book, is illustrated with dozens of documents marked "secret" and "confidential" that have walked out of file cabinets and fallen into Palast's hands.--From publisher description.
