Bob Woodward: Obama's Views on War

"THE AGE OF THE AMERICAN PRESIDENCY"

Donald Trump is creating an entirely new American Presidency, breaking most rules and setting a new non-traditional course.  Two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward is now turning to the 45th president, putting him in context and addressing what is going on behind the scenes and what to expect.
 
Woodward speaks to the critical questions: How did Trump get to the White House? What are his true intentions?  What can be believed? What positions are real?  What information can be trusted and what statements and tweets really reflect where he is going? Can he deliver? Who will support or attempt to thwart him? Who does he really listen to? And what may it all mean?
 
No one knows the American presidency as well as Bob Woodward, the Post’s veteran reporter-historian, who has written #1 bestselling books covering all eight of the last presidents from Nixon to Obama. Only someone with more than four decades of explaining and understanding the American presidency with his signature aggressive but fair and non-partisan reporting can quickly provide a timely portrait of Trump.  The 45th president comes to an office which, as Woodward demonstrates, has an increased and astounding concentration of power.

WAR AND TERRORISM – WHAT ARE THE LESSONS FOR AMERICA?

Nothing defines the nation to the world – and to itself – as much as war. Bob Woodward has written seven books on the wars and foreign policy of the two Bushes, Reagan and Obama — beginning with The Commanders in 1991 on the first Gulf War, Veil: the Secret Wars of the CIA under Reagan, four books on President George W. Bush’s wars (Bush at War, Plan of Attack, State of Denial, and The War Within) and Obama’s Wars in 2010.

HAS WASHINGTON FORGOTTEN THE LESSONS OF WATERGATE?

Bob Woodward’s and Carl Bernstein’s work uncovering the Watergate scandal was called “maybe the single greatest reporting effort of all time” by Gene Roberts, then managing editor of The New York Times. It earned them the Pulitzer Prize. Years after the revelations of Watergate that led to President Nixon’s resignation still cast a long shadow. Its lessons about secret government stand as warning signs to future presidents.
