Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium
In Disinformation, veteran investigative reporter and
bestselling author Richard Miniter debunks the myths of the left
(and the right) with hard evidence, high-level interviews and
on-the-ground reporting in more than a dozen countries. If truth is
the first casualty of war, urban legends are the first product of
America's War on Terror. In his new book, Miniter punctures
twenty-two myths about terrorism, al Qaeda, and the war in Iraq. He
has sifted the written record, met with countless high-level
sources, and traveled the globe, from Sudan to the Philippines,
Egypt to Iraq, to track down and refute some of the most widely
believed - and often pernicious - legends of the War on Terror.
Miniter provides evidence to shoot down disinformation and refute
those who mindlessly repeat it.
Richard Miniter is the author of the New York Times
bestsellers Losing bin Laden: How Bill Clinton's Failures
Unleashed Global Terror and Shadow War: The Untold Story
