Ali Soufan – The Black Banners

David speaks with former FBI agent Ali Soufan about his new book The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against al-Qaeda. As one of the few Arab speaking members of the FBI, this Lebanese-American was handed the task of interviewing key members of al-Qaeda in the days after 9/11. During his time on the front lines, Soufan helped thwart plots around the world and elicited some of the most important confessions from terrorists in the war against al-Qaeda—without laying so much as a hand on them.
