60" Tonight: Woodward Discusses Secret Financial Preps for Iraq War
Woodward Will Discuss New Book on 60" Tonight

From the CBS Web site:

Woodward interviewed 75 of the people who helped prepare for the war, including President Bush the only source who speaks for attribution -- in the upcoming book, Plan of Attack, published by Simon & Schuster. Both CBSNews.com and Simon & Schuster are units of Viacom.

In the interview, Woodward talked about how the administration was able to finance secret preparations for the Iraq war.

What is the status of the war plan? I want you to get on it. I want you to keep it secret," says Woodward.

"... The end of July 2002, they need $700 million, a large amount of money for all these tasks. (more at URL)

Woodward will also be on Tweety tomorrow.

Tonight's Dateline will be a two-hour special on Columbine and the warnings that were there...why didn't they "connect the dots?"
