Abstract:

"What Happened Here takes us through the first term of the "Bush junta": the deep history of the neo-conservative "sleeper cell," the invention of the War on Terror, the real wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (in the astonishing "What I Heard About Iraq"), and bizarre Republican beliefs and practices. Written for publication in magazines abroad, translated into sixteen languages, and collected here for the first time, Eliot Weinberger's chronicles of the Bush era range from first-person journalism to political analysis to a kind of documentary prose poetry. The book begins with the inauguration of George W.

Bush in January 2001 - and an eerie prediction of the invasion of Iraq - and picks up on September 12, with an account of downtown Manhattan, where Weinberger lives, on the "day after.""--Jacket.
