In an important sense, Holcomb Noble spent most of his career at The New York Times preparing for this project, the first ten years as an acquisitions editor and rewrite person at the Sunday magazine. After stints as a science-section editor, metropolitan news editor, and business editor, he was made an investigations editor, during which he led two teams in year-long investigations that won back-to-back Pulitzer Prizesone proving that the Star Wars anti-missile shield would not work, saving the nation an estimated cost of more than a trillion dollars, and the second uncovering corruption in the space industry, which directly accounted for the crash of the space shuttle Challenger and death of seven astronauts. His journalism career began as a reporter for the Worcester Telegram in Massachusetts after graduation from Amherst College. He joined the Associated Press in 1960 and went on to become day supervising editor of the APs general news report. Part of his responsibilities included directing coverage of the moon missions of Apollo 12, 13, and 14 from the AP bureau at the space center in Houston.

Cheneys War Crimes brings together for the first time the many strands of the Shakespearean tragedy that is the story of Dick Cheney. It gives an insiders account of his extraordinary seizure of power in becoming the de facto president; makes shocking disclosures about the chaos and confusion in response to the 9/11 attacks; and tells step by step how Cheney led the nation into two destructive wars in the Middle East.

Holcomb B. Noble shared in two Pulitzer Prizes in leading two back-to-back, year-long investigations about the U.S. space program for The New York Times. He directed The Times coverage in discovering fatal flaws in President Ronald Reagan’s massive program, known colloquially as Star Wars, to build a anti-missile missile shield around the globe, and in disclosing the cause of space shuttle Challenger.
After a six-part series on Star Wars had run, the trillion-dollar program was scraped. After he retired from The Times, he wrote this book on Dick Cheney, published by AuthorHouse, a division of Penguin.
Noble joined The New York Times as an editor of its Sunday Magazine, where he served ten years editing such writers as John Kenneth Galbraith, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., James Clavel, Anthony Burgess and Seymour Hersh. Other special investigations he lead included fraud in the for-profit mental-health industry for committing teenagers to mental institutions who skipped school, warning the parents that the child was suicidal and then pronouncing them cured when their parents insurance ran out. That investigation led to a $350,000, then the largest health-care fine in the nation’s history.
