Three Cups of Lies?

New York Times-Three Cups of Tea

Amidst all the other problems facing the publishing industry at the moment, a new potential challenge is popping up.  The possibilities of false memoirs slipping past notice into publication.  Just recently the validity of Greg Mortenson's claims in his memoirs Three Cups of Tea were challenged by a CBS News report recently.  Mortenson dies any claims that his tale is false or that he does not actually support the schools he claims to support in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  We'll have to keep an eye out to see what the further investigations reveal.
