War reporting crashed into Megan Stack’s life almost like the war on terror crashed into America. She was vacationing in Paris on September 11, 2001. Within days, she received the call and was rushed onto an aircraft carrier to travel to Afghanistan to report about the war. “I wound up there by accident, rushed into foreign reporting by coincidence…” Stack wrote in Every Man in This Village is a Liar: An Education in War, a personal memoir of her reporting through the Middle East (2). She documents her experiences of the American-led invasion of Iraq & Afghanistan, while exploring conflicts in Lebanon, Egypt, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Israel, and Libya. She works her way through strings of violence and terror that have tangled with US foreign policy.
