Legendary Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward’s new book “Obama’s Wars” hasn’t hit stores yet, but the New York Times’ Peter Baker got a copy and has published some choice excerpts. Some highlights, per Baker:
* The book describes President Obama pushing a withdrawal timetable because, “I can’t lose the whole Democratic Party.”
* The US Special Representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan
Richard Holbrooke says of the new strategy, “it can’t work.”
* Lt. Gen. Douglas E. Lute, the president’s adviser on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, is said to think president’s reviews of the strategy going forward did not “add up” to his ultimate decision.
