McClellan Testifies, Sells More Books

The most recent stop in former White House press secretary Scott McClellan’s book tour was Capitol Hill, where he testified about his own participation in the Valerie Plame affair and the involvement of both Bush and Cheney in attempting to cover up the treasonous tracks of 2007 felon of the year Scooter Libby.

Less than Literate

Mr. Bush said he was “surprised” that Mr. McClellan had written a book to criticize him because, he explained, “if you’re trying to communicate some criticism to me, a book is pretty much the last place you’d put it.”

Speak Now or Cash In Later

Scott McClellan takes the Bush administration to task in his new memoir, but he had quite a different tune when he was the president’s mouthpiece. Here’s what he had to say about Richard Clarke’s post-administration book: “Well, why, all of a sudden, if he had all these grave concerns, did he not raise these sooner?” Why, indeed, Scott?

Ex-Press Secretary Throws Bush Under the Bus

Scott McClellan was one of George W. Bush’s most loyal aides, so it is surprising to learn that he savages the president and his administration in his new memoir. Among other bombshells, McClellan refers to the administration’s “propaganda campaign” to sell the war and accuses Karl Rove and Scooter Libby of meeting in secret during the Plamegate scandal in order to get their stories straight.

The 935 Lies They Told Us About Iraq

The Center for Public Integrity has launched a new Web site that documents some of the 935 “false statements” that George W. Bush and his seven hawks made while pushing war with Iraq. The site endeavors to show that this wasn’t a case of just getting it wrong, but “a carefully orchestrated campaign of misinformation.”

Perino: Bush Didn’t Lie to McClellan

Turns out that the current White House press secretary, Dana Perino (pictured), has broached the uncomfortable topic (considering her position) of Scott McClellan’s upcoming book.  Unsurprisingly, Perino reported in an off-camera moment during Monday’s White House press briefing that Bush never knowingly misinformed McClellan.

McClellan’s Publisher Does Damage Control

Since the news broke about former White House press secretary Scott McClellan’s new book, there has been a curious lack of commentary on the topic in certain mainstream U.S. news outlets and only a vague official reaction from the White House.  Meanwhile, his publisher is attempting to do some damage control.

Ex-Press Secretary Claims Team Bush Deceived Him in Plame Case

There has been no shortage of tell-all books from former Bushies (paging George Tenet), but the latest one, by former White House spokesman Scott McClellan, is a real bombshell—primarily because McClellan alleges that the president, the vice president and three other high-ranking officials allowed him to pass “false information” about the Valerie Plame CIA identity leak case to the press.

Fox News’ Tony Snow is Likely New Bush Spokesman

No, it shouldn’t be surprising that Bush is reportedly picking from the ranks at Fox News for a replacement for McClellan. More interesting, perhaps, is what Snow has said about Bush in the past: “An Embarrassment,” “Impotent,” “Doesn?t Seem To Mean What He Says.”

McClellan Still Ducking Queries on Weapons Trailers

The presidential spokesman won’t say at what point the president learned of a Pentagon report which concluded that Iraqi weapons trailers discovered after the invasion were not—as Bush later claimed—WMD factories.
No wonder McClellan won’t answer. This could amount to proof positive that Bush outright lied about WMD.

McClellan Wants Media to Apologize for Trailers Story

The White House spokesman said news networks should apologize for reporting on the Washington Post’s story about the phony Iraqi weapons trailers. But when reporters quizzed him on what Bush knew and when he knew it, McClellan ducked the question.
