New Bob Woodward Book: War Within

George W Bush admits failure in Bob Woodward’s The War Within

In a rare admission of disappointment, he (Bush) continued: "And you know,
one of my failures has been to change the tone in Washington. And it’s the
failure of others as well."

Woodward: Military Opposed Surge

The idea of throwing another 30,000 troops into Iraq was a desperate gamble

Top Investigative Reporter: US Spies on Iraqi PM

Instead, Woodward points to what he calls "groundbreaking" covert programs to
track and kill insurgent leaders.

I wonder what that means. Does anyone have a clue??

    Keep up the great work.
