Mr. Swisher talked about his book The Truth About Camp David: The Untold Story about Arafat, Barak, Clinton, and the Collapse of the Middle East Peace Process, published by Thunder’s Mouth and Nation Books. The book was about the 2000 Camp David summit between Ehud Barak, Yasser Arafat, and Bill Clinton and argues that the popular understanding of what happened there is inaccurate. Mr. Swisher said that while Mr. Arafat is largely blamed for spoiling the negotiations, the U.S. and Israeli teams were just as, if not more, responsible for the talks falling apart. He also challenged reports that claim that Mr. Arafat was offered upwards of 98 percent of the occupied territories in exchange for peace. After his presentation he responded to questions from members of the audience. close
