Researcher Quits Over the Dumbest Book Ever Written About the Bush Administration

Protesting Frank J. Fleming's controversial new book on the Presidentówith the provocative title, "The Chronicles of Dubya Volume 1: The Defeat of Saddam" óDr. Frank Stein resigned this week from the Fleming Center. Stein had co-authored a previous book on the Middle East with Fleming, had been affiliated with the Center for 3 years, and in many ways was Fleming's "brain" on Dubya for years.

Stein writes in a letter explaining his resignation that Fleming's new book is "replete with factual errors, copied materials not cited, superficialities, glaring omissions, and simply invented segments. Aside from the one-sided nature of the book, meant to provoke, there are recollections cited from meetings where I was the third person in the room, and my notes of those meetings show little similarity to points claimed in the book. In due course, I shall detail these points and reflect on their origins." *

When contacted to respond, Fleming's office stated he was attempting to arrange a meeting between former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and former President Jimmy Carter, and that he was presently unavailable for comment.

Think Fleming's remains, phone pressed to his ear, waiting on hold? Posted by: Eg at December 7, 2006 04:34 PM

Peanut boy is certainly high on my list of victims for the Rumsfeld Strangler....

Hey, don't knock the book. There are millions of brain damaged left wingers standing in line to buy it with they're welfare money. Howling Howie and Hanoi John will pay extra for a signed copy. Doesn't matter who signs it, the brain damaged can't read anyway.

Sounds like Fleming went to the Ann Coulter school of writing.
