Sneak Preview: New Book of Cheney Revelations
Beginning this Sunday, The Post will publish a two-part excerpt from Barton Gellman's new book "Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency."
Gellman, who this year shared the Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting with Jo Becker for their Post series on the vice president's vast influence, recreates in the excerpt the week that Cheney nearly led President Bush off a cliff, keeping him unaware of a dispute that threatened his presidency. White House and other top officials speak on the record about an episode that one of them describes as nearing "Watergate territory."
In one instance, a top official sent a BlackBerry message, just after leaving the Oval Office, saying he told the president "he was being misled" by Cheney and his allies.
Check back on Sunday for the details. And on Wednesday, join Gellman for an online discussion of the new book.
