“This is war,” said Rumsfeld to Bush

Drudge links over to a Washington Times article which has excepts of a new book, Rumsfeld’s War.

Donald H. Rumsfeld sat in a vault-like room studded with video screens and talked with President Bush as the Pentagon burned.

“This is not a criminal action,” the secretary of defense told Bush over a secure line. “This is war.”

The word “war” meant more than going after the al Qaeda terrorist network in Afghanistan, the fault line of terrorism. Bush said he wanted retaliation.

The book looks like it has a lot of inside information, and I can only hope that Rumsfeld has given it the okay or the reporter is going to get grilled over his informants.
