Washington (AP) Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan has written that President Bush relied on a propaganda campaign to sell the Iraq war in the place of honesty and candor.

It's being reported that an upcoming book by McClellan says Bush “veered terribly off course” and was not “open and forthright on Iraq.”

According to the report on the web site politico, McClellan wrote that some of his own words from the podium in the White House briefing room turned out to be “badly misguided.” he says his words were sincere at the time.

Mclellan blamed many failings on what he described as a government that was run as a permanent political campaign.
