Treachery: How America's Friends and Foes are Secretly Arming Our Enemies

Recorded on October 7, 2004

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Van Andel Center

New York Times bestselling author Bill Gertz uncovers the most significant threat to U.S. national security today: America's enemies - including radical terrorist groups - are arming themselves with the world's most dangerous weapons. And they're doing it with the help of America's supposed allies. Worst of all, the U.S. has let it all happen. Using his unparalleled access to the U.S. intelligence and defense communities, Gertz names names, revealing which of our "friends" have placed greed over principle to make America's enemies far more deadly and the world a far more dangerous place. In Treachery, Gertz tells the whole story, complete with previously unpublished classified intelligence documents, and based on dozens of exclusive interviews with senior U.S. officials. Only Bill Gertz has the contacts and the knowledge to tell the complete story of how France, Germany, Russia, China, and other countries have armed our enemies to the teeth. Treachery is also the definitive account of what the U.S. government is doing to counter the threat - and of how our leaders have too often failed us.
