He is one of the brightest, calmest, most remarkable young men I have ever encountered or worked with.

Well-read and meticulous, Mark always had superb ideas for improving the structure, substance and language of this story.
He has a natural sense of order and was able to juggle a half-dozen tasks and persevere through hour days with grace. He is toughminded but scrupulously fair. I found I could trust him without question. Every day working with Mark was a joy, and I treasure our friendship.
This book is a collaboration - his as much as mine. Graham, who so brilliantly carries on the legacy of his mother, Katharine Graham: Bush at war during the first days after the September 11,terrorist attacks. The information I obtained for this book includes contemporaneous notes taken during more than 50 National Security Council and other meetings where the most important decisions were discussed and made.
Many direct quotations of the president and the war cabinet members come from these notes. Other personal notes, memos, calendars, written internal chronologies, transcripts and other documents also were the basis for direct quotations and other parts of this story.
In addition, I interviewed more than people involved in the decision making and execution of the war, including President Bush, key war cabinet members, the White House staff, and officials currently serving at various levels of the Defense and State Departments and the CIA.
Most sources were interviewed multiple times, several a half-dozen or more times. Most of the interviews were conducted on background meaning that I could use the information but the sources would not be identified by name in this book. Nearly all allowed me to tape-record our interviews, so the story could be told more fully and with the exact language they used.

The president gave specific answers, often very detailed, about his reactions and reasoning behind the main decisions and turning points in the war. War planning and war making involve secret information. I have used IV a good deal of it, trying to provide new specific details without harming sensitive operations or relationships with foreign governments.
This book contains a voluminous amount of new, documented information which I was able to obtain while memories were freshest and notes could be deciphered. It is an inside account, largely the story as the insiders saw it, heard it and lived it. Since it covers events and secret deliberations that began just over a year ago, it is an early version.
But I was able to test the information I had for accuracy and context with trusted sources I have known for years and in some cases decades. Criticism, the judgments of history and other information may, over the coming months and years, alter the historical understanding of this era.
