Ms. Garrels and Ms. Stern talked about the war in Iraq and terrorism. Ms. Garrels is the author of Naked in Baghdad: The Iraq war as seen by NPR’s correspondent, published by Farrar, Straus, and Giroux. She was one of only sixteen non-embedded American journalists who stayed in Baghdad’s Palestine Hotel during the 2003 American military drive into Iraq. The narrative begins in October 2002 with several trips the author made to Baghdad, and then goes on to detail her daily experiences during the coalition’s offensive. Ms. Stern is the author of Terror in the Name of God: Why Religious Militants Kill, published by HarperCollins. She described the four years during which she interviewed extremist members of three religions around the world: Christians, Jews, and Muslims. She explained how terrorist organizations are formed by opportunistic leaders who use religion as both motivation and justification to recruit the disenfranchised, and how moral fervor is transformed into sophisticated organizations that strive for money, power, and attention. After their prepared presentations, the authors responded to questions from the audience.
