Red Line
Joby Warrick is a best-selling author and a national security correspondent for The Washington Post. A two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Joby's Happy Hour will explore his true-life thriller Red Line: a character-driven narrative with a cast of heroes and villains, including weapons hunters, politicians, doctors, diplomats, and spies. In August 2013, a horrific poison-gas attack against Syrian civilians presented the United States with an unexpected opportunity: A chance to snatch away a vast trove of highly lethal chemical weapons that was at imminent risk of being stolen by ISIS or commandeered by pro-Iran militants. A deal was cut with Russia, and the race was on to extract the weapons from depots across Syria, in the middle of a brutal civil war. Drawing on astonishing original reporting, Warrick reveals how the United States embarked on a bold adventure to prevent one catastrophe but could not avoid a tragic chain of events that empowered America's enemies.
