About the Author

Senator Christopher S. "Kit" Bond (R-MO) was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1986, the only Republican that year to win a seat previously held by a Democrat. He was re-elected in 1992, 1998, and 2004. In the Senate he has improved care for veterans and service men and women and has built a reputation as an advocate for a strong U.S. military, as a reformer of the intelligence community, and as an expert on Southeast Asia. He is vice chairman of the Senate Select Intelligence Committee.

Lewis M. Simons has been a foreign correspondent since 1967, reporting from Vietnam and throughout Southeast Asia; India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Iran; China, Japan, North and South Korea, and the former Soviet Union. He wrote for the Associated Press, the Washington Post, and Knight-Ridder Newspapers and won the Pulitzer Prize for exposing the Marcos family's hidden billions. Author of Worth Dying For, he is a regular contributor to National Geographic and his op-ed articles have appeared in the New York Times and the Washington Post.
