Mr. Woodward discussed his book, The Commanders, which investigated the decision making process in the White House from the beginning of the Bush administration to the beginning of the Persian Gulf war. He discussed the research he conducted for the book and the journalistic philosophy he employs in covering the workings of government. Mr. Woodward’s book sparked controversy upon its release by revealing the amount of dissent that existed in the White House from the decision to use force in enforcing the U.N. resolutions concerning Kuwait. Mr. Woodward discussed the Bush administration’s short history, which he said has been based on strong military action with a weak legislative agenda. close
