Woodward: Tenet told Bush WMD case a ’slam dunk’

Bob Woodward has been all over the news including stints on CBS’s ‘60 Minutes’ and CNN’s ‘Larry King Live’. His new book ‘Plan of Attack’ claims:

    According to Woodward, Tenet reassured the president “it’s a slam dunk case” that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. Bush also made his decision to go to war without consulting Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld or Secretary of State Colin Powell, Woodward’s book says.

    Powell was not even told until after the Saudi ambassador was allowed to review top-secret war plans in an effort to enlist his country’s support for the invasion, according to Woodward, who has also written or co-written several best-selling books on Washington politics, including “All the President’s Men” with Carl Bernstein.

    The book also reports that in the summer of 2002, $700 million was diverted from a congressional appropriation for the war in Afghanistan to develop a war plan for Iraq. Woodward suggests the diversion may have been illegal, and that Congress was deliberately kept in the dark.

Sounds like the makings of a blockbuster. I can hear the clicking keyboards of Hollywood screenwriters right now… CNN

  1. It’s amazing what happens when we look back 5 years later (or 7 to 2002). I wonder how we’ll look back at the whole thing in 2032?
