A new book by two Newsweek investigative reporters claims to report "what was really behind the US-led invasion of Iraq." It reveals the original source for the newspaper column that outted Valerie Plame Wilson and describes what she really did at the CIA. Hubris describes what it calls the President's "visceral hatred of Saddam Hussein," Colin Powell's lingering bitterness over false statements he made to the UN Security Council and efforts by the Vice President's office to find evidence to justify the war.  The authors of the book are Michael Isikoff and David Corn.
