In his yet to be released book (What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception), McClellan, once a staunch defender of the war, comes to a stark conclusion, writing, “What I do know is that war should only be waged when necessary, and the Iraq war was not necessary.”
Beam yourself up Scotty! The former Press Secretary, a close confidant and fellow Texan, will need to keep his head down. You don’t criticize the Administrator and Administration and walk free. The salvos are heading in.
The only question I have is: if you knew this five years ago, why did you wait so long to make the revelation? Is it about your conscience or is it about the book?
