Scott McClellan's memoir as Bush's press secretary is a bombshell

Read about the lies and myths of the War on Terror
"Given the barrage of publicity and outrage that it has generated in the last day, you know what you're in for before you even crack the spine of What Happened, Scott McClellan's memoir of his nearly three years as George W. Bush's press secretary. It's not necessarily surprising that McClellan critiques his former co-workers. But the candor, anger and overall disappointment with which McClellan discusses President Bush and his policies is particularly surprising from someone previously presumed to be the most faithful of aides. On the fifth page of the preface McClellan bluntly writes, 'History appears poised to confirm what most Americans today have decided — that the decision to invade Iraq was a serious strategic blunder.' That blunder, he continues, was one propagated by a 'political propaganda machine' that misled the public on the reasons for war with Iraq."
