Another week, another book enlightening the public about the Bush administration. Next up, a second book by Bob Woodward -- this time lacking the puffery.

Key statements from a conservative, no less:

Woodward's book, combined with the O'Neill and Clarke accounts, ``is not going to help the president's credibility,'' said Lawrence Korb, a former assistant secretary of defense under President Ronald Reagan.

``It's pretending to do one thing and doing another,'' Korb said in an interview yesterday. ``If you look at the preponderance of evidence, it becomes pretty clear'' that Bush was focused on Iraq after the Sept. 11 attacks, Korb said.
