Woodward book sealed Gen. Jones’ fate

Washington (CNN) — When he got his hands on an advance copy of Bob Woodward’s new book “Obama’s Wars” before it hit stores and started reading it earlier this month, I’m told that White House National Security Adviser Jim Jones simply blew a gasket.

Jones was so furious about his portrayal in the book that the retired four-star general told friends later that he promptly took the book and mailed it back to Woodward, as if to say the book wasn’t worth the paper it was printed on, according to a close friend of his who spoke to me on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the national security adviser’s private conversations.

When I pressed a senior administration official on whether or not Jones did in fact put the book in a box and mail it back to Woodward, the official simply said no comment, refusing to confirm or deny the postal service protest.
