Thomas Ricks in San Francisco

Ricks draws from hundreds of exclusive interviews to present a look at the war in Iraq post-2005

Pentagon Reporter, The Washington Post; Author, The Gamble: General Petraeus and the American Military Adventure in Iraq 2006-2008

In his follow-up to the number-one New York Times best seller Fiasco, considered a definitive account of the Iraq invasion, Pulitzer Prize-winner Ricks delivers his second news-breaking installment of the Iraq war story. This depiction of the war since 2005 draws from hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with top military officers, revealing that, though there may be a security plan in place, an exit strategy is still nowhere to be seen, says Ricks.
