Another Reason Halberstam's Death so Tragic

clipped from
Historian David Halberstam, killed April 23 in a car accident in California, was reportedly planning to write a book about Ahmed Chalabi when he died.

Joe Strupp talked to Halberstam's widow, Jean, for Editor and Publisher.

She said one of the notes she had received was from President and Laura Bush, offering condolences. She called it ironic, given Halberstam's criticism of the president. She noted that he was in talks at the time of his death to do a book on Ahmed Chalabi, the controversial Iraqi official who was a leader in the push for overthrowing Saddam Hussein. The potential title: "Our Man In Iraq."
