Washington Event This Saturday With Robert Parry, Daniel Ellsberg And Ray McGovern

People in Washington, D.C. should check out this appealing event this Saturday afternoon. People not in Washington should donate here to Consortium News and/or buy Neck Deep.

Come to Busboys and Poets this Saturday for a panel discussion with investigative journalist Robert Parry, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern, and Vietnam-era whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg. The discussion will focus on issues of government secrecy and the manipulation of intelligence for political purposes -- as we saw in the lead-up to the Iraq war, and as we are currently seeing in regards to Iran. Parry will also be discussing his recent book, Neck Deep: The Disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush, and at the end of the discussion, will be signing copies of the book.

Feb. 2 4-6 p.m.
Book Talk and Signing
Busboys and Poets
2021 14th St., Washington, D.C.

Award-winning investigative reporter Robert Parry, who broke many of the Iran-Contra stories for The Associated Press and Newsweek in the 1980s and two of his sons, Sam and Nat Parry collaborated on this important book. Unlike others about the Bush administration, Neck Deep: The Disastrous Presidency of George W. Bush explains exactly who is responsible for enabling an individual so wrong for the job to become president – for two terms! The Parrys edit, started in 1995, the longest-running investigative website on the Internet. Hear about the new book and enjoy an evening at Busboys and Poets restaurant, located at the corner of 14th and V St NW – 2 blocks from the Metro Green Line – U Street Cardozo stop.
