Rezension bezieht sich auf: State of Denial: Bush at War Part 3 (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This book is the third part of the "Bush at war trilogy". The first book being a plattform for US-government officials such as Bush, Cheney, Rice and Rumsfeld to tell their side of the story of the so called war on terror. The second, "Plan of attack" dealing in a quite similar fashion with the Iraq war. This third volume strikes a different tone. It deals with the progress made in Iraq - or in the eye of the author - the lack of it. Woodwards new focus isn't on the cabinett level, but rather on generals and civilian officials on the ground in Iraq and the lack of support they get. The author does not seem to question his sources stories, he merely reports them. I haven't read any other books by Bob Woodward so far, but I would have expected more from such a prominent journalist than just well polished transcripts of interviews.
However these books seem to capture the attitude towrds the Bush-administration by certain people in the US. The first book singing a decisive presidents praises, the second being a little sceptical, but overall supportive and the third wishing the president and his entire administration to hell for ineffectiveness.
Like so many things in politics this doesn't sound fair. And even though I don't like this Whitehouse's politics, I can understand their anger with this book.
My guess is a little more research and a little less rubbing shoulders with the big guys would have produced a better book.
