Peter Bergen Discusses His Book, “The Osama bin-Laden I Know” with Jon Stewart


Iraq is like Osama bin Laden’s Christmas present — if bin Laden believed in Christmas.

 

Peter Bergen (born 1962) is an American print and television journalist, author, and CNN‘s national security analyst. Bergen produced the first television interview with Osama Bin Laden in 1997. The interview, which aired on CNN, marked the first time that bin Laden declared war against the United States to a Western audience. Bergen has written three books: Holy War, Inc., The Osama bin Laden I Know, and The Longest War: The Enduring Conflict Between America and al-Qaeda (Jan. 2011).
