Bush Used Media Campaign To Sell Iraq War

Former press secretary's book bashes Bush

The Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan writes in a new memoir that President Bush relied on an aggressive "political propaganda campaign" instead of the truth to sell the Iraq war, and that the decision to invade pushed Bush's presidency "terribly off course.'

The Bush White House made "a decision to turn away from candor and honesty when those qualities were most needed" , a time when the nation was on the brink of war, McClellan writes in the book entitled "What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception."

The way Bush managed the Iraq issue "almost guaranteed that the use of force would become the only feasible option."

"In the permanent campaign era, it was all about manipulating sources of public opinion to the president's advantage," McClellan writes. Read this revealing AP story in the PhillyBurbs.

This makes me sick to my stomach! I am SO GLAD I never voted for Bush! Eight years of Republican-led congress/presidency has sent this country right down the toilet. Worst government in recent history. Bush should have been impeached long ago. Makes the Clinton impeachment look ridiculous! Let the Democrats win in the fall and take this country back to what it should be!!

I can't wait for the sequel!
There is gonna be a sequel right?
How could the author pack all this action into just 400 pages?
I gotta know if the boy-king turns it all around in the end.
Don't leave me hangin' McClellan.

A lot of allegations, very little or no proof. Is that the way we deal with an unpopular President, Even Clinton got teated better. I'm not a Bush fan, but let's not make judgements base on allegations with little or no proof. By the way thae author of the book was never in any of the meetings, his clearance wasn't high enough. How would he know
