| When Scott McClellan was named George Bush’s White House press secretary in 2003, The New York Times referred to his “tell-all-dad,” Barr McClellan. |
An attorney, Barr McClellan had used information about his former partners at a Texas law firm as the basis of a book asserting Lyndon Baines Johnson had directed the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
Scott McClellan has now written his own “tell-all” book, a chronicle of his time in the George W. Bush White House.
Entitled What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception, the volume is no valentine to a former boss.
McClellan writes that Bush was not “open and forthright” going into the Iraq War.
