i've been waiting for this moment for a long time

WASHINGTON, May 27 (Reuters) - Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan says in a new book that U.S. President Bush "veered terribly off course" and was not "open and forthright on Iraq," reported on Tuesday.

In the memoir due out next week, McClellan also says Bush relied on "propaganda" to sell the war and says the Washington press corps was too easy on the administration during the run-up to it, according to the Web site.

McClellan also takes the administration to task for its performance after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans, saying the White House "spent most of the first week in a state of denial," Politico reported.

Said McClellan: "One of the worst disasters in our nation’s history became one of the biggest disasters in Bush's presidency."
