Interrogating Saddam TV Producer Joins Joseph Galloway, Col. Jack Jacobs and Tom Ricks

David Winton, Producer of National Geographic’s Interrogating Saddam joined the growing list of people who are endorsing the forthcoming book Breaking Iraq: The Ten Mistakes that Broke Iraq. Co-authored by retired U.S. Army Colonel Ted Spain who commanded the 18th Military Police Brigade in Baghdad and retired FBI official Terry Turchie; the book focuses on the ten planning mistakes made in Washington that sent Iraq into confusion and near defeat after a flawless invasion by the military.

Winton’s commens: Ted Spain and Terry Turchie are two of the smartest, most decorated police and military experts- around. In Breaking Iraq, they have collaborated on a riveting examination of the Iraq War through Spain’s experience as 18th Military Police Brigade commander. The picture they draw is a harsh, highly readable, and altogether gripping account of how American authorities, who botched so many things, failed at the most fundamental requirement of all: policing and public safety.”

Winton concluded: “When the final history of the war is written, this volume - rich in authentic detail and you-are-there storytelling, will provide powerful illumination of failed leadership and the strategic military importance of being effective cops as well as fighting soldiers.”

David Winton is a co-founder of Winton/DuPont Films and the producer of Interrogating Saddam which aired on the National Geographic Channel in 2010.He joins renowned war correspondent Joseph Galloway, Pulitzer Prize winner Tom Ricks and Medal of Honor recipient retired U.S. Army Colonel Jack Jacobs in endorsing Breaking Iraq.
