Thieves of Baghdad
Today on Charlotte Talks with Mike Collins we'll meet author and Marine Colonel Matthew Bogdanos. In post-war Iraq, Bogdanos was in charge of tracking down Iraqi antiquities that were looted from the Iraqi National Museum. We'll talk about Bogdanos' classical background that gave him the experience he needed to properly identify and retrieve the antiquities, about his return to the military after 9/11, and about the book he wrote chronicling his work in the US and in Iraq, Thieves of Baghdad
