The program ’60 Minutes » has taken dead aim at the author, Greg Mortenson.  They charge that portions of his best-seller book « Three Cups of Tea » never happened at all.  They also charge that Mortenson has mishandled funds and exploited his enormously  successfull charity to promote his own speaking engaagements and book sales.

Also  many of the schools Mortenson built in Afghanistan Pakistan are just  empty hulks with no students.

Sixty Minutes says Morttenson has lied about the noble deeds he  has done, the risks he has taken, the people he has met, the number of  schools he has built. »

Is Greg Mortenson, the author of « Threee Cups of Tea » a fraud?

What do you think?

    Barbara Says:

    If what 60 Minutes uncovered is true, then he is obviously a fraud.

    As my father used to tell me, believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see.

    Neil McKenty Says:

    It’s too bad his good work may be crippled by his shady deals.

  3. 3
    Barbara Says:

    And what if his « good work » is only a facade for his shady deals? What evidence of « good work » is there?

    In any case, no one is all bad nor all good.

  4. I agree with Barbara’s father. Could this be another Tom Dooley story?
    In Pakistan and Afghanistan schools are being blown up as fast, or almost, as they are built. The Talibans threaten those who would send their kids to school so what is so astonishing if you build schools and they remain empty?
