"Captive: My Time As A Prisoner of the Taliban" Heroic tale or Fraud?

Join host, Linda Olson-Osterlund for a probing interview with author Jere Van Dyk about his new book. Over the years Van Dyk, who was raised in the Portland area, has been a reporter for CBS news, the New York Times, National Geographic and much more. He wrote the book, In Afghanistan: An American Odyssey based on travels in the 1980's and later served as a front man for the National Security Council in Washington DC. You can view him on the web at the Big Think or on CSPAN.

The new book, Captive:My time as a Prisoner of the Taliban, is filled with inconsistencies and lacks adequate corroboration. Was he even a captive? I invite you to read this cut and paste, soap opera, set in Afghanistan. Then view his performance on CSPAN. You be the judge.
