WASHINGTON (WIFR) -- The book chronicles the behind-the-scenes battle between the administration and its military leaders over the war.
Watergate journalist Bob Woodward has had unprecedented access to presidents for decades and interviewed president Obama for "Obama’s Wars." According to Woodward, President Obama knows what happened in the past but doesn't see a clear path out of Afghanistan.
“You can see the exact anguish in Barack Obama, he can't seem to find an answer here, and he knows that it's undermining everything that he wants to do at home." said Presidential Historian, Allan J. Lichtman.
President Obama told Woodward he’s focused on a strategy that would leave Afghanistan stronger when the troops do come home.
