Peter Bergen

Peter Bergen – a frequent guest on Conversations with David Lewis — was the first western reporter to interview Osama Bin Laden, in 1997, when he met the terrorist leader in a cave in Afghanistan.  The United States of Jihad is Bergen’s most recent book on Bin Laden and those he has inspired.  This book focuses on American jihadis who have joined the terrorist cause.  

Bergen and David Lewis were first colleagues at ABC News and then at CNN.
