Gareth Porter visited the Twin Cities to talk about his book, Manufactured Crisis: the Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare, in which he discusses the false narrative that Iran had/has nuclear weapons and how that false narrative began and was perpetuated by the neo-cons under the Bush administration and still persists today, even as we go into talks with Iran.[vimeo http://vimeo.com/94519835]

Porter was the 2012 recipient of the prestigious London-based Martha Gellhorn Prize for Journalism, an award presented to a journalist who reveals “an unpalatable truth, validated by powerful facts.” Julian Assange received the award in 2011 for Wikileaks.
Porter’s appearances were sponsored by the Women Against Military Madness Middle East Committee.
