Publisher's Summary

"Just as the necessary qualification for a good liar is a good memory, so the essential equipment of a would-be lie detector is a good timeline, and a decent archive." In No One Left to Lie to, a New York Times best seller, Christopher Hitchens casts an unflinching eye on the Clinton political machine and offers a searing indictment of a president who sought to hold power at any cost. With blistering wit and meticulous documentation, Hitchens masterfully deconstructs Clinton's abject propensity for pandering to the Left while delivering to the Right, and he argues that the president's personal transgressions were ultimately inseparable from his political corruption.
Hitchens questions the president's refusals to deny accusations of rape by reputable women and lambasts, among numerous impostures, his insistence on playing the race card, the shortsightedness of his welfare bill, his ludicrous war on drugs, and his abandonment of homosexuals in the form of the Defense of Marriage Act. Opportunistic statecraft, crony capitalism, "divide and rule" identity politics, and populist manipulations - these are perhaps Clinton's greatest and most enduring legacies.

Was there a rapist in the Whitehouse?

Bill Clinton continues to be one of the USA's most popular Presidents. However, Hitchens suggests that behind the facade Clinton was a sexual predator who was prepared to use air-strikes on innocent targets in order to deflect attention from his sexual and financial scandals. This is a well-argued, well-evidenced book that strips away the handsome Rhode scholar image and allows the reader to see the rancid underbelly of a manipulative, bullying, self-fixated individual.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I found some aspects of these events made me angry, and sorry that justice was probably never done. Also it made me re-appraise my views on BOTH the Clintons, and their entourage.
