Plan of Attack is the definitive account of how and why President George W. Bush, his war council, and allies launched a preemptive attack to topple Saddam Hussein and occupy Iraq. Bob Woodward's latest landmark account of Washington decision making provides an original, authoritative narrative of behind-the-scenes maneuvering over two years, examining the causes and consequences of the most controversial war since Vietnam. Based on interviews with 75 key participants and more than three and a half hours of exclusive interviews with President Bush, Plan of Attack is part presidential history charting the decisions made during 16 critical months; part military history revealing precise details and the evolution of the Top Secret war planning under the restricted codeword Polo Step; and part a harrowing spy story as the CIA dispatches a covert paramilitary team into northern Iraq six months before the start of the war. This team recruited 87 Iraqi spies designated with the cryptonym DB/ROCKSTARS, one of whom turned over the personnel files of all 6,000 men in Saddam Hussein's personal security organization. What emerges are astonishingly intimate portraits: President Bush in war cabinet meetings in the White House Situation Room and the Oval Office, and in private conversation; Dick Cheney, the focused and driven vice president; Colin Powell, the conflicted and cautious secretary of state; Donald Rumsfeld, the controlling war technocrat; George Tenet, the activist CIA director; Tommy Franks, the profane and demanding general; Condoleezza Rice, the ever-present referee and national security adviser; Karl Rove, the hands-on political strategist; other key members of the White House staff and congressional leadership; and foreign leaders ranging from British Prime Minister Blair to Russian President Putin. Plan of Attack provides new details on the intelligence assessments of Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction and the planning for the war's aftermath.… (mais)

Woodward puts together a great book!
This is another great look behind the curtain of a presidential administration. This book takes you right to the heart of the matter of the Iraqi conflict. Woodward shows just how much restraint the president used rather than running to war as most had feared. There is a lot here to pay attention to as it relates to the relationships with the president and how he responds to the demands from each person. Woodward pulls all of those ends together. ( )

Bob Woodward egyike a legismertebb amerikai újságíróknak. Az 1974-ben publikált, a Watergate-ügyet feldolgozó Az elnök emberei óta tudjuk, hogy mindenkinél jobb forrásai vannak Washingtonban. Azt tartják róla, hogy előtte minden ajtó megnyílik a fővárosban, ott lehet a bizalmas tájékoztatásokon, állítólag Bush elnök többször is személyesen fogadta az Ovális irodában (és ezzel nem sokan dicsekedhetnek), s hogy őmaga hívhatta meg vacsorára Donald Rumsfeld védelmi minisztert. Bob Woodwardról elmondhatjuk tehát, hogy washingtoni körökben igazi bennfentes, az írásai pedig “hitelesek és tárgyilagosak”.

A támadás terve az iraki háború előkészületeiről szól. Úgy tűnik, Woodward valóban ott volt minden eligazításon, elsőkézből szerzett információkat a döntéshozók lépéseiről, exkluzív interjúkat készíthetett a Bush-adminisztráció tagjaival. Félelmetes, ahogy szárazon elénk tárja: miként készülnek az elnök beszédei, hogyan dolgozik egy csapat azon, hogy a Bush száját elhagyó mondatok után milliók érezzék úgy, hogy a “Gonosz Tengelye” valós fenyegetést jelent az amerikai állampolgárokra. Képet kapunk arról is, miként és miért habozott Colin Powel támogatni a kormány azon igyekezetét, hogy Szaddám Husszeint eltiporják a Föld színéről, vagy hogy Bush milyen okos húzással állította végül az ügy mellé őt. Az tény, hogy amit Woodward ebben a könyvben leír, az hiteles és tárgyilagos. Na jó, az elsőben azért kételkednék, de tárgyilagosnak tényleg tárgyilagos. Azt azonban hozzátenném még, hogy a támadás terve ebben a formában hiányos is. Woodward szinte semmit nem ír arról, hogy a szövetséges csapatok Irakban végül egy fia tömegpusztító fegyvert sem találtak, és erről a titkosszolgálatoknak bizony előre, már a támadás tervezésekor tudniuk kellett. Arról sem esik szó, hogy Bush elnököt milyen mértékben mozgatták esetleg személyes jellegű indíttatások a Szaddám Husszein elleni háború kirobbantásában. Hasonlóképpen hiányoltam a könyvből olyan jellegű összefüggéseknek a pártatlan feltárását, amelyek alapján a Bush adminisztráció Irakot a nemzetközi terrorizmussal és a szeptember 11-i eseményekkel hozta kapcsolatba – természetesen itt mellőzve minden összeesküvés-elméletet, és csakis a tényekbe kapaszkodva. Ha A támadás terve “a 2001. szeptember 11-i terrortámadás utáni lépések és döntések hátterét kutatja” (idézet a magyar kiadás belső borítójáról), akkor szerintem ez a könyv lehet hiteles és teljes mértékben lehet tárgyilagos is, de nem teljes, és legfőképpen nem pártatlan.

Woodward had remarkable access to Bush and his colleagues, probably more than any other reporter which makes this group of books unique. Woodward also brings a remarkable background, beginning with the Nixon administration to the project. These books will always be invaluable to the history of the Bush administration. ( )

Although mostly seen as an indictment of Bush's policies, Woodward, in an attempt to be objective, demonstrates that the Constitution was followed. Senators and Congress were consulted, informed, and they voted. Likewise, in marshalling a foreign coalition, Bush formed a unified position with other nations, appealed to the U.N., and led the plan to attack in a Constitutional manner with international support. The bad intelligence collection performed by the CIA is explored and was no doubt influenced by the "slam dunk" quote by CIA Director George Tenet. Bush acted as a leader without equivocation and he performed based on the evidence that he had at the time.

Many people can second-guess the President but with the recently declassified papers of the High Value detainees at Gitmo there is no doubt his actions saved many innocent lives. The U.S. bore the brunt of the war on terror in the shedding of American blood and treasure. The MSM wants to indict Bush and his players in the court of popular opinion but Woodward is true to form. He informs readers of what the principals said and leaves their words untarnished and without editorializing. The extreme risk of danger required a President who is decisive and acts on the information available at the time. Iraq, in context, was a much greater threat of harboring WMD or promoting those who would use these weapons against the U.S.
