Loretta Napoleoni talked about her book Insurgent Iraq: Al-Zarqawi and the New Generation, published by Seven Stories Press. The book is about Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, who is widely described in the U.S. as the leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq. In her book, Ms. Napoleoni said that there has been a myth created around al-Zarqawi and his actions in Iraq. She argued that Secretary of State Colin Powell, in his February 2003 speech to the United Nations, did more to create support for al-Zarqawi than al-Zarqawi himself had done up to that point. After her presentation Ms. Napoleoni responded to questions and comments from members of the audience.

Ms. Napoleoni was introduction by Rep. Cynthia McKinney (D-GA). The event was held in Representative McKinney’s office in the Longworth House Office Building. close
