Bob Drogin, author of “Curveball: Spies, Lies, and the Con Man Who Caused a War,” will speak at Frostburg State University on Monday, April 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the Alice R. Manicur Assembly Hall of the Lane University Center.
Drogin describes a con-man, dubbed “Curveball” by the Western intelligence community, whom Drogin claims was lying when he sketched out Saddam Hussein’s germ warfare program to American intelligence, driving America to begin a war. Drogin shows how those who doubted Curveball’s evidence ignored their doubts because it fed a theory they had already believed.
Rev. Larry Neumark of United Campus Ministry is looking forward to Drogin’s presentation. “We are very fortunate to have Bob Drogin, an award-winning national security reporter for the Los Angeles Times, as our speaker. If people want to know how and why America's intelligence was so wrong and how we were deceived into war, they will want to hear Bob Drogin speak.”
Following the presentation, Drogin will be available to sign his book, which is a bestseller and was recently in the number five position of the Foreign Affair’s Top 10 books list.
