October 4th, 2006 7:25 PM

Brent Scowcroft, National Security Advisor to the first George Bush and advisor to the younger Bush on intelligence, says in a statement released to the AP that Bob Woodward made up quotes in his new book, "State of Denial: Bush at War."

"I have spoken to Bob Woodward a number of times about a variety of subjects over the years, but I did not agree to be interviewed for his latest book. Further, there are statements in the book, directly or implicitly attributed to me, that did not and never could have come from me. I never discuss any personal conversations that I may have with President George H.W. Bush, and he never discusses with me any conversations that he has with President George W. Bush."
