New Book Slams Ahmad Chalabi, News Media
Aram Roston: Chalabi Duped Journalists, Prodded US to War with Bogus Claims

Here's an excerpt from a report on Aram Roston's new book:
"What most of the TV and print reporters weren't really aware of was that Chalabi's people used U.S. taxpayer funding to pay all that PR and propaganda," Roston says. In fact, Chalabi and his team were so good at spin, they were even rewarded for it. Says Roston, "After the invasion, the INC and its PR firm won an award from PR Week lauding them for their publicity skills."

Here is Roston's interview (audio and transcript) with NPR.
