Skip to comments.Another book from Bob Woodward...

WASHINGTON Bob Woodward, who wrote two books praising President Bush and then a third harshly criticizing him, is out with a fourth tome that renders a mixed verdict on Bush, lauding the presidents surge of troops into Iraq, but saying "too often he failed to lead."
At 487 pages, "The War Within" is the fourth installment in Woodwards series of books on the president. Its release is embargoed until Monday, although an advance copy was obtained exclusively by FOX News.
The new book is less critical than Woodwards last tome, "State of Denial," which savaged Bush for his execution of the war in Iraq. "Denial" ended with the line: "With all Bushs upbeat talk and optimism, he had not told the American public the truth about what Iraq had become."

If you don’t give an interview, Woodward prints all the backstabbing crap others are saying about you and you can’t refute it.
Obviously, it would be better if everybody refused to be interviewed.
Any interviews with dead people?
Bob Woodward is an A$$.
yawn; Bob Woodward may be a pulitzer prize winner, but he is old news. The MSM will promote him but the MSM have killed themselves with the walk into a world of indecency by their reporting on Palin. Who cares what the washington elite has to say anymore? Not me.
I suspect that DR has some of his finger prints on this as well.
Woodward has quite the little annuity going there. Release a book every two years right in front of the election. This is not non-fiction. This is all about money.
I would agree that too often he failed to take the MSM to the woodshed. Looks like we have a new face coming who knows how to administer a spanking! LOL
You got the name wrong it’s Woodworm!
Gee. I haven’t got around to reading his first book. He connived with someone else in writing that one, but the name escapes me.
Must have gotten a call from his accountant: "Better get finishin' that book, Mr. Woodward, your money is starting to run pretty low."
If this book tells lies, I wish the Administration uses the word “lies” to describe them and stop using the word “unacceptable” which I hate.
I wonder which former Bush Cabinet member knocked the other member down in order to be first to talk to Woodward - Donald Rumsfeld ( source - “Plan of Attack” ) or Colin Powell ( source - “The Commanders” )?
What does Powell and Woodward have in common ? They both used to work for Gen Al Haig.
LOL. The Forest Gump of journalism! He has a book ready about everyone! I bet he is really pizzed off because he never thought to write one about Governor Palin...
I've had some personal interaction with Carl Bernstein. It's clear he embraces his parents' communism. His values & ethics are questionable at best. The "word" is to get paid upfront before selling him anything.
DR? As in Donald Rumsfeld? Why do you think that?
See #14. Have you ever noticed when something critical of the CIA (or defense of DoD) comes out it’s always Bob Woodward and whenever something critical of the DoD (or defense of CIA) comes out it’s always Sy Hersh?
The Abu Grahib scandal hit after “Plan of Attack” came out.
