This book is Ashton Robinson's unique eye-witness account of the ISG's operations in Iraq, based at Camp Slayer, in one of Saddam Hussein's former palaces The group's task was to search for weapons of mass destruction or to account for them if they did not exist. But the ISG discovered so much more. The ISG unintentionally gained a fascinating insight into Saddam's dictatorship through interviews with most of 'the Quartet', Saddam's senior committee of trusted lieutenants, and uncovered a web of international corruption surrounding Iraq's erosion of UN sanctions. The author interweaves his daily experiences in Iraq with interviews with Saddam's men and historical analysis of pre- and post-war Iraq. He explores Australia's intelligence relationships with allies and also covers the human rights issues in the coalition occupation of Iraq, as well as the development of the insurgency in Iraq and the rise of ISIL. This story is not just about the Iraq War; it's a rare look into Australia's allied intelligence relations, and the international politics, intrigue and corruption surrounding the war.
