McClellan’s Deception

“So I stood at the White house briefing room podium in front of the glare of the klieg lights for the better part of two weeks and publicly exonerated two of the senior-most aides in the White House: Karl Rove and Scooter Libby. There was one problem. It was not true.”

Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan has written a book titled What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception which comes out in June from Public Affairs publishing. McClellan writes about the glare of the lights to communicate the intense scrutiny he received by the press while passing out information he found out later was false. While McClellan is bitter at being deceived, a review in the New York Times of the yet-to-be published book says he retains affection for President Bush.

What Happened may be written in an entertaining style but I think I’m done with this administration and will skip this read – time to move on!
