Bob Woodward gained his journalistic fame and Pulitzer when he broke the Watergate scandal with fellow writer Carl Bernstein. Since then, Woodward has continued to be a part of Washington’s political journalism scene. The release of his new book, The War Within, reveals another bombshell. Talking about the revelation with CNN’s Larry King, Woodward discusses his knowledge of a secret military program designed to assassinate key terrorist leadership in the global war on terror and how its implementation, the Mahdi Army ceasefire and the 30,000 troop surge are all critical elements behind the improved conditions in Iraq. Woodward doesn’t let all the stops go, however. He admits revealing all he knows would get Americans killed, but acknowledges when the truth comes out, the public will be amazed.
