running the country between the constitutional convention of 87 and george washington's presidency? >> guest: congress. congress had issues to settle. for once we were in the midst of a terrible depression. people don't understand that. the depression lasted as long as the war and most people don't understand how long the war lasted, 81/2 years which except for vietnam the longest war we have been involved in. flight of people particularly in new england was really serious. people were going to jail for debt, which was not what they had fought that war for for and it led to what was known as share's rebellion. it was a very unsettled and unsettling time. there was the northwest ordinance passed by that congress. one of the most far-reaching decisions any congress ever made that provided the opportunity of inexpensive land for veterans of the revolution in lieu of the money they had been paid which was called scrip which was only worth $.10 on the dollar. it was the opening up of the west as it was then known, the northwest, north and west of the ohio river, which ultimately became

election of 2000 between george w. bush and al gore. if al gore had won that election al gore would have probably had the afghanistan war because of 911, which happened the following september 2001, but would not have invadedyi iraq, so my point ision isn't it true that because of the republicans and george w. bush and i say this as a liberal progressive democrat myself that george w. bush bashan ofob a rock as horrible as a dictator that saddam hussein was, it kept it as a stable country without isis emerging, so if that iraqi war had not happened and if george w bush and dick cheney had not invaded iraq or app al gore had won a new member 2000 and there was no iraq war-- host: okay. i think we got the point. guest: bill, that's a good question and as a journalist i try to avoid putting political labels on it, but the book argues and i strongly believe that the iraq invasion was the original sin, not just the invasion itself, which gave the jihadists this cause they had been looking for particularly zarqwi who wanted to fight america and predicted the fight would take place in iraq
