Overview

The definitive account of what Iraqi exile Ahmad Chalabi did to manipulate the U.S. government into invading Iraq with his ultimate hope of being placed in power, by longtime 60 Minutes producer Richard Bonin.

Drawing on unparalleled access to Chalabi, Bonin traces the exile's ingenious efforts to stoke a desire for Iraqi regime change in the U.S. He narrates Chalabi's ill-fated engagement with the CIA and his later focus on neoconservative policy makers who rose to power under George W. Bush. As a result, from day two of the Bush presidency, the push for a new Iraq was on, with the intent to install Ahmad Chalabi as overseer of U.S. interests in the Middle East. The outcome was perhaps the biggest foreign policy disaster in our history and a triumphant end to Chalabi's forty-five-year quest. Arrows of the Night is full of shocking revelations about how we got there, including the true story of Chalabi's relationship with Iran.
