The Triple Agent: Presentation by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Joby Warrick

Tue, Oct 08, 2013, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
LOCATION: Truland Auditorium, Ballston Center

Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Joby Warrick, the Washington Post’s national security correspondent, will give a presentation on the devastating suicide bombing attack by an al-Qaeda double agent, Humam Khalil al-Balawi, against the CIA base in Khost, Afghanistan, in December 2009. The attack resulted in the deaths of seven CIA operatives.

This presentation is based on Warrick’s book, The Triple Agent, which provides a detailed examination of the CIA's war against al-Qaeda and a gripping portrait of both al-Balawi and the veteran agents whose desire to avenge 9/11 led to a terrible miscalculation.
