Jack Goldsmith s duty as head of the Office of Legal Counsel was to
advise President Bush on what he could and could not do . . .
legally. Immediately after taking the job in October 2003,
Goldsmith began to see that the work of his predecessors, whose
opinions were the legal framework governing the conduct of the
military and intelligence agencies in the war on terror, were
deeply flawed.Goldsmith is a conservative lawyer who understands
the imperative of averting another 9/11. But his unflinching
insistence that we abide by the law put him on a collision course
with powerful figures in the administration. In The Terror
Presidency he shows how Bush damaged his own presidency and
compromised the ability of his successors to respond forcefully in
times of crisis."
