The president secretly consulted several times with Colin Powell, the retired general who served as secretary of state under President George W. Bush. Powell advised the president not to allow himself to get pushed into a decision by the media, the Democratic base, or the military, Woodward writes.

Woodward told Sawyer he focused on the subject of war because "it's defining" for a president – particularly this president.

"The wars are going to go down with his name on it," Woodward said.
