In the months and years following September 11, Senator Robert C. Byrd has viewed with alarm what he considers to be a "slow unraveling of the people's liberties," when all dissenting voices were stilled and awesome power swung suddenly to the president to fight a "war on terror." This path violates historic American principles—it shows no regard for the balance of powers or the role of the Congress; it invades our privacy; and it eliminates public participation in and understanding of government. Swept along, we have entered a war without proper consideration and rushed dangerous legislation through Congress.  Now is the time to regain the Constitution, to return to the values and processes that made America great. Byrd does not shrink from speaking the truth to an ever more aggressive and imperial White House. Byrd has written a new postscript for the paperback edition.… (mere)

Now reading Obama's 2007 book and he cites Senator Byrd several times. Great dedication. ( )

An in depth analysis of how Congress and the Bush administration have gotten to where we are at today. How 9/11 was the perfect opportunity for some money to be made by Bush and his cronies by attacking Iraq. It's about how policies and law changes came about and helped to make the US a hated country worldwide; how citizen rights have eroded; how we can have a president that can get away with out and out lies to the American people while the VP continues to take advantage financially of the war on terrorism.

WV Senator Robert Byrd, the oldest and longest running Senator makes a big statement against the Bush administration. Full of facts that show Bush's carelessness in his presidency and the reason's Bush was never qualified to be president. This books makes a clear statement of what others have been to afraid to state. Senator Byrd makes no apologies for his views on the administration or the man. Byrd shows why Bush's policy is flawed and backs up his statements with facts. The man who has been a Senator since Truman makes a very good argument of the State of our Nation and how we are losing our original values under Bush. There are some long-winded areas, but the book is still an insightful, eye opening read. ( )

Senator Byrd's antiwar screed, with some of his speeches. Not particularly spectacular, but readable. ( )
