Marc Thiessen Wordboards Jane Mayer
Posted by Print

Usually, reading an author complain about a review of his book is a largely unappealing exercise.  But Marc Thiessen, former speechwriter for Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and President George W. Bush and current columnist for The Washington Post, has penned a classic against lefty Jane Mayer’s review in The New Yorker of his book “Courting Disaster:  How the CIA Kept America Safe and How Barack Obama Is Inviting the Next Attack.”

You don’t have to read the book, you don’t have to read the review to joy at a master technician take apart an ideologue, word by biased word.
