STAGE TUBE: THREE CUPS OF TEA Author Admits to Letting People Down
In an interview with Tom Brokaw, Greg Mortenson, author of "Three Cups of Tea" said he's grateful to the people who raised allegations that he mishandled money from the charity he created to help build schools for girls in Afghanistan.
He said, "In maybe a strange, ironic way, I'd like to thank CBS and Jon Krakauer because, had they not brought these issues up, we could have gotten into more serious problems."
