Washington (CNN) - Author Bob Woodward acknowledged that parts of his book hit "close to the bone" and may have caused some ill feelings in the White House.
"It's quite possible," Woodward said in an interview for CNN's Reliable Sources with Howard Kurtz. "This is a total universe portrait in the nature of the relationships and attitudes."
Woodward also reaffirmed many reports that outgoing National Security Adviser James Jones didn't fit in with the Obama Administration.
"Jones was somebody who wasn't part of the campaign team," Woodward said. "You know he just didn't fit, I think everyone has noted that as he resigned."
In his book, Woodward notes that Gen. Jones often referred to Pres. Obama's inner circle as "the water bugs, Politburo, Mafia," and "the campaign set." Former Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, and Senior Adviser David Axelrod were included in this group.
