    Bob Woodward--of All the President's Men fame--is going to release the third book in his Bush at War series. The first book was Bush at War (about the administration in the months following 9/11), the second, Plan of Attack (the administration's decision to invade Iraq), and now State of Denial.

    The book will be released on Oct. 2nd. Here is a glimpse from 60 minutes:

    Poor Bob .... never has regained his "shining moment" form circa 1972. He breaks ONE (count 'em) story and you lefties try to portray everything he says as gospel.

    He has gained greater respect from me for saying that. And exactly what point are you trying to prove with this??

    I was wondering exactly the same thing. One would think since he is privvy to info even the troops on the ground in Iraq don't know about he'd have at least left his office once or twice.

    I doubt the insanely high number of insurgent attacks per week. Maybe somewhere between 15 and 50 (probably a lot less than 50, but it's only a range I made up! MWA HA HA HA! I AM BETTER THAN YOU WOODWARD, BETTER!).

    Seems to me I just heard the President of Iraq say during his visit that attacks were now down from a high of 15 a day to 5 a day in Baghdad. But then, who is HE?:smoke:

    I know, your a cheerleader for "Book of the month club".

    Hate to break it to you 1549, but none of Bob Woodwards' books have ever made the list.

    Keep trying.:lame2:

    Maybe Bob is a pretty smart guy though, I mean if anyone publishes an Anti-Bush book the liberals will buy it up in a frenzy. Sounds like a good way to make money off the libs.

    Since we will all hear it be used as a "source" for further partisan bashing, we won't even have to buy it to know what it says .:happy2:
