Bush Sr. Loses Sleep Over War on Iraq
Bush Sr 'lost sleep' over Dubya's war
Bob Woodward's new revelations about Iraq
According to Woodward's "State of Denial"..."Even Mr Bush's parents had their doubts before the war began, according to a Janaury 2003 conversation between Barbara Bush and a family friend, cited by Mr Woodward.
In it, the president's mother supposedly confided that her husband, former president George H W Bush "is certainly worried and is losing sleep over it; he's up at night worried."
These doubts, however, were apparently not shared by the man on centre stage.
In a CBS interview to be broadcast in the United States on Sunday, Mr Woodward says the president was adamant he was right about Iraq, saying ahead of a key meeting with fellow Republicans: "I will not withdraw even if Laura and Barney are the only ones supporting me."
Laura? His wife, of course. And Barney? The president's Scottish terrier.
