(Studio: Aaron Brown) Bob Woodward's latest book "Bush at War" on President Bush's operation in Afghanistan featured; details given of the positions of different members of the administration outlined & quoted. [On "Larry King Live," WOODWARD - talks about his sources on what the administration said; says they bought up more people than the military killed; states Bush is in control.]

(Studio: Aaron Brown) Live interview held with "Newsweek" assistant managing editor Evan Thomas† about Woodward. [From Washington, THOMAS - says Woodward is "inevitable" so people feel they have to talk to him; notes the reality is that if a source like Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld refuses to talk, you do not get his specific point of view; comments on Rumsfeld's "evasive, slippery quality"; says Woodward is amazing in getting the details.]
