3 cups of tea inaccurate

Taken from the BBC news story:

The best-selling book Three Cups of Tea, which follows the author Greg Mortenson’s mission to build schools across Central Asia, is filled with inaccuracies, a US news programme says.

The CBS 60 Minutes report alleges that his charitable foundation took credit for building schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan which do not exist.

The documentary also says Mr Mortenson uses the charitable group as a “private ATM machine.”

Mr Mortenson denies the allegations.

I’ve been a supporter of Mortenson’s efforts since the book came out so will need to do some investigations and inquiries myself.  I can only imagine the media is hyping this up, because Greg’s organization has a newsletter that goes out describing all of their outreach efforts, continued way beyond the publication of the book.
