Slate’s Live Panel on Searching for Saddam

By Betsy Rothstein 

saddam.jpgSlate hosts a live panel discussion Friday morning in conjuction with the New America Foundation. The panel is based on the Slate series, “Searching for Saddam”, that tells the story of how innovative U.S. soldiers captured Saddam Hussein by using Facebook-style social network theory.

Slate’s Chris Wilson (author of the series), New America’s Peter Bergen, and others will discuss the high-tech hunt Hussein that took place in 2003 and how the lessons from that search continue to change and influence U.S. war practices.

Searching for Saddam takes place at the New America Foundation, 1899 L St. NW, Suite 400, Washington, D.C. Slate will live stream the discussion on its Web site,
