Ex-spokesman lambasts Bush in his new book
« on: May 29, 2008, 03:54:34 PM »
In the scathing What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington?s Culture of Deception, the one-time presidential aide also blasted the White House staff over the disastrous handling of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 by saying they ?spent most of the first week in a state of denial,? according to Washington-based Politico magazine.
?One of the worst disasters in our nation?s history became one of the biggest disasters in Bush?s presidency,? McClellan wrote in the excerpts released to Politico.
?The perception of this catastrophe was made worse by previous decisions President Bush had made, including, first and foremost, the failure to be open and forthright on Iraq and rushing to war with inadequate planning and preparation for its aftermath.?
McClellan, 40, wrote that with Bush still in office the American public has already concluded ?that the decision to invade Iraq was a serious strategic blunder.
?No one, including me, can know with absolute certainty how the war will be viewed decades from now when we can more fully understand its impact. What I do know is that war should only be waged when necessary, and the Iraq war was not necessary,? McClellan wrote.
He also accused former senior Bush strategist and adviser Karl Rove and Lewis ?Scooter Libby,? the vice president?s chief of staff, of deceiving him on their role in an explosive CIA leak scandal involving the disclosure of former CIA operative Valerie Plame?s identity.
?Rove, Libby, and possibly Vice President (Dick) Cheney allowed me, even encouraged me, to repeat a lie? that Rove and Libby were not involved in the leak, McClellan wrote.
Libby was convicted of obstruction of justice in 2007 and sentenced to two and a half years in prison, but was pardoned by Bush.
McClellan?s book has raised eyebrows among Washington?s punditry for its candour and critical tone.
Rove, now a commentator on Fox News, hit back at McClellan as a ?little irresponsible? and ?out of the loop? for suggesting that he was involved in the CIA leak affair.
Rove said that McClellan ?should have spoken up? earlier if he had had moral qualms about actions or policies of the White House. ? AFP

This book is great review of American economics. In the beginning of the American republic, which is very convenient, and completely practical commitment, so that many poor soldiers of the Continental Army, the very wealthy founding fathers are not willing to continue. A pragmatic working definition is, in itself, an illusion based on the establishment of consultative democracy is obvious.
