Introduced by Dianne Lynch, Dean of the Park School, as one of the icons of American journalism, Woodward encouraged students to find work that they love and to work with good people, describing his relationship with Katherine Graham of the Washington Post, a "hands-off, mind-on" manager who understood the work of reporters and encouraged them to get to the bottom of things. In March 2003 the Post gave him one year to answer the basic question, "Why did we go to war?" He sent the results of his research to President Bush in a 21-page memo and Bush responded with an unprecedented interview opportunity; Woodward spent 3 1/2 hours with the President, getting answers to 500 questions, which became part of Woodward's second book on the war, Plan of Attack. As short answers to the original question about the war, he offered the following: September 11th required action, and the invasion of Iraq was considered easy by Presidential advisers. More fundamentally, he noted Bush's key phrase "I believe we have a duty to free people", and Bush's zeal and enthusiasm for this cause, which blinded him to any evidence to the contrary, illustrating this blindness with several of instances he chronicled in his next Iraq War book, State of Denial. He concluded his 40-minute talk by noting his disappointment with the lack of an effort for consensus within the US government on an Iraq policy, and responded to questions by Ithaca College students and other attendees for a half-hour
