Woodward: Bush lied [VIDEO]

In this clip from Sunday night's 60 Minutes, Bob Woodward is welcomed aboard the train that left the station about 3+ years ago.

Still, it's significant that a man with such cred goes on TV and effectively says that Bush lied.

In this clip, Woodward points to recently declassified info from our own intelligence agencies that puts the lie to years of Bush spin.

Again, welcome aboard Mr. Woodward. Coulda used you earlier but glad you could make it...

The Daily Mail's coverage opens:

An explosive new book claims that Tony Blair pleaded in vain with George Bush to share vital combat intelligence about the Iraq war.
The author, Watergate journalist Bob Woodward, paints a devastating portrait of Bush as an incompetent pawn of his chief advisers and the Pentagon's war planners.
He says that, with Bush locked in a desperate battle to win re-election in 2004, they were more interested in hiding the truth about the failures to thwart the September 11 attacks and find weapons of mass destruction than running a competent military operation.
