President Obama was “urgently” looking for a way out of Afghanistan last year and demanded an exit plan advisers wouldn’t give him, according to Bob Woodward’s new book, “Obama’s Wars.” The book has all sort of inside info on Obama’s deliberations, including tensions between Obama’s civilian advisers and the military.
The Washington Post has some details which you can read here.
UPDATE: The White House doesn’t dispute the book, spins back to the Washington Post: “The President comes across in the [Afghanistan] review and throughout the decision making process as a Commander in Chief who is analytical, strategic, and decisive, with a broad view of history, national security, and his role,” says a senior administration official.
The book will be released September 27. You can pre-order a copy from Amazon by clicking on the link below.
