Scott McClellan on Bush and coke

Ex-White House press secretary Scott McClellan has turned the tables on his former boss Pres. George W. Bush in his controversial book, What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception.

McClellan & Bush About Bush's drug use, he writes: "How can someone simply not remember whether or not they used an illegal substance like cocaine?... I felt I was witnessing Bush convincing himself to believe something that probably was not true and that, deep down, he knew was not true... In the years to come, as I worked closely with President Bush, I would come to believe that sometimes he convinces himself to believe what suits his needs at the moment."
