PETER L. BERGEN – Terrorism Expert and Best-Selling Author
Mon. April 4, 2005 at Redondo Beach 8:00 pm
For nearly a decade, this terrorism expert has covered Osama bin Laden and the Jihadist terrorist network that operates globally and in secrecy. Reporting for CNN, NBC, PBS, and NPR, he is one of only a few Western journalists to have interviewed the world's most wanted man, face to face. As America struggles to understand a new kind of enemy, Bergen offers unparalled insights to Bin Laden, the al-Qaeda network, and the future of global terrorism. He takes audiences behind the fear, anger and destruction and sheds illuminating new light on their motives and what they hope to achieve. He also takes a look beyond the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to talk about future threats to America as we undertake a years-long battle against global terrorism. His work, Holy War Inside the Secret World of Osama bin Laden was a NY Times best-seller.
