"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.
The new book is filled with inconsistencies and lacks adequate corroboration. Was he even a captive? You be the judge.
