Suskind Will Release (Some) Transcripts From Book Interviews

Jeff Stein at Congressional Quarterly:

Author Ron Suskind says he will release transcripts of his interviews with a top CIA official that will confirm his story that in 2003 the White House ordered the agency to fabricate a phony document linking Iraq to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C...

But in a telephone interview this evening, Suskind said he is planning to release transcripts of his on-the-record interviews with Richer to back up his story.

"There are lots of transcripts, lots of tapes," Suskind told me. "In the next couple days the transcripts will be coming out."

Suskind said he will probably post them on his own Web site...

Suskind says that Richer had pledged to him that he would not deny his quotes when the book came out...

But Suskind said he would not release transcripts of his "hours and hours" of interviews with [second source on the forgery] Maguire, "at least at this point, because "he hasn't had a chance to read the book yet."

Read it all.
