#1 ...Would this be the same Bob Woodward who - nearly forty years ago - claimed to have snuck past several layers of security and medical personnel to get Bob Casey (Reagan's CIA director)to snap out of a coma just long enough to implicate Reagan in Iran Contra? That Bob Woodward?

#2 Enough of Woodward's treasonous accusations and treachery. He wouldn't make a pimple on the arse of either of these two men.

#5 Considering Woodward's history of embellishing quotes and outright lies, compared with Mattis and his service...

I'll believe Mattis and Kelly long before I believe Woodward.

Plus, Woodward himself has admitted in the past he goes for shock to sell books.

#6 "These are political statements to protect their my jobs, totally understandable."

A Freudian-slip confession?

#7 Leaving aside the issue of whether Woodward could recognize the truth were it to land on him Warner Bros cartoon style, this is a man who quotes Gen Kelly as utilizing the term 'crazy-town'.

A man would have better results facing due west and waiting upon the sunrise than waiting for a Marine 4 star to go all fluttering Mugatu and say that. In the event Gen Kelly was moved to so publicly lose his verbal composure the result would have been masculine, memorable, and definitive.

#10 "Fake, but Accurate?" Bob Woodward learned his lesson after his first book on Bush's War Administration: Slime any Republican President or you will be a Pariah to the Coastal Elite. Since then he spares no effort...

#12 The only way to settle this honorably is by duel.

#13 I'm sure as a good solid honorable journalist Woodward recorded the entire interview... I bet Mattis and John Kelly did.

#14 I'd bet my money on Mattis and Kelly telling the truth over Woodward. Woodward's book suffers from the same sourcing problem that the NYTs anonymous op ed hit piece suffers from.
