Author Reese Erlich

October 11, 2007 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm EDT

Will the United States and Iran Find Themselves at War? In The Iran Agenda: The Real Story of U.S. Policy and the Middle East Crisis (Poli Point Press, 2007), author and journalist Reese Erlich shows how the U.S. government is planning to subvert the Iranian government and lie about it to the American people. He traces the troubled history between the two countries that has led to the current showdown over nuclear technology and he reports from Iran and northern Iraq to uncover details of how the U.S. has funded ethnic minorities to carry out guerrilla raids and terrorist bombings inside Iran. Potluck at 6 pm and talk at 7 pm.

In his previous book, the best-selling Target Iraq: What the News Media Didn’t Tell You (co-authored with Norman Solomon, 2003), Erlich presciently exposes the harsh realities and consequences of the run-up to the Iraq War and the media’s failure to present the full spectrum of the facts to the public.

Reese Erlich has been a working journalist for 40 years– starting as a staff writer and research editor for Ramparts, an investigative reporting magazine published in San Francisco from 1963 to 1975. Today he works as a freelance reporter, regularly filing print and broadcast stories for the Canadian and Australian Broadcasting Corporations, Radio Deutsche Welle and National Public Radio. His articles appear in the San Francisco Chronicle, St. Petersburg Times and the Dallas Morning News. His television documentaries have aired on PBS stations nationwide.

Produced by the Iran Working Group of Upper Hudson Peace Action and co-sponsored by Women Against War and Bethlehem Neighbors for Peace.
