Bob Drogin, a Los Angeles Times national security and intelligence reporter, talked about his book, Curveball: Spies, Lies, and the Con Man Who Caused a War, published by Random House. The book examines how U.S. intelligence agencies used information from an Iraqi defector and allowed themselves to be deceived into making their case to the White House for war against Iraq. A video clip was shown of Secretary of State Colin Powell’s speech to the United Nations Security Council on February 5, 2003, in which he was relying on information that was later shown to be false. close
