White House declares war on author Ron Suskind
Again . This time it's over his new book, The Way of the World, in which Suskind claims the WH ordered the CIA to forge a back-dated, handwritten letter from the head of Iraqi intelligence to Saddam Hussein.
Back in 2004, Bush officials accused Suskind of fabricating a quote for a New York Times Magazine in which Bush, late in his re-election campaign, privately assured donors that in 2005 he would announce plans for the "privatising of social security." Which, of course, is exactly what Bush did in 2005.
