Peter Bergen, one of the few Americans to have interviewed Osama bin Laden face-to-face, is one of today’s foremost commentators on America’s national security and the War on Terror. Author of two New York Times bestsellers, Bergen’s recent release, “The Longest War: The Enduring Conflict Between America and Al-Qaeda”, has been called “one of the most important accounts on the subject” by the newspaper. He is editor of the AfPak Channel, a premiere clearinghouse of news covering Afghanistan, Pakistan, and issues of transnational terrorism. Bergen is also the Director of the National Security Program at the New America Foundation and a Research Fellow at NYU’s Center on Law and Security. His most recent book, a New York Times bestseller, is “Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden, from 9/11 to Abbottabad.” The book is being translated into seven languages and HBO is producing a theatrical release documentary based on it.
