A Meet the Author Event

Who: Charles Ferguson, Director & Producer, No End in Sight: The American Occupation of Iraq

Event: Charles Ferguson joins the Council to discuss his Oscar-nominated documentary film and new book No End in Sight: Iraq’s Descent into Chaos. Culled from over two hundred hours of footage collected for the film - as well as additional interviews in response to it – his book provides an investigative record of the events following the fall of Baghdad in 2003. Confronting such issues as troop levels, allowing the looting of Bagdad, the U.S. military’s “surge,” and purging professionals from the Iraqi government, Ferguson’s book features candid interviews with high-ranking officials such as former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and General Jay Garner, as well as Iraqi civilians, American soldiers, intelligence officers, and prominent analysts, such as George Packer, Samantha Power, and Christopher Hitchens.
