    highlighting new details of 9/11 attack

    [​IMG] Reuters – Former U.S. President George W. Bush is seen on the cover of his memoir titled "Decision Points" …

    While former Vice President Dick Cheney has been quick to tear apart the Obama administration on television or in interviews, his old boss has kept largely out of the political fray since leaving the White House.
    Instead, George W. Bush has been busy writing these past 15 months, and Crown Publishers announced Monday that it will publish his book “Decision Points” on Nov. 9. According to the Associated Press, Bush has said that “Decision Points” will not be “a traditional memoir but an account of key decisions in his life.” Crown, in a statement, described the book as offering “gripping, never-before-heard detail” of major events, such as the attacks of Sept. 11 and the disputed 2000 election, along with difficult personal choices like quitting drinking.
    There’s been no shortage of books written on the Bush years, including four from the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward alone. But while those tomes were mostly from journalists and academics, now the president and those close to him are seeking to influence the public record.
    Last month, top adviser Karl Rove came out with “Courage and Consequences,” a book that heaped praised on Bush’s White House tenure and his legacy. Next month comes Laura Bush’s memoir “Spoken From the Heart.”
    And further down the road are two much-anticipated books from a couple of the most powerful and controversial figures in the Bush White House: Cheney and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
