For the many thousands of federal personnel who spend their days and nights protecting the homeland, and for every American citizen, the ongoing threat of terrorism is of vital concern. Government has spent hundreds of billions of dollars fighting the war on terror, and that war continues unabated. Now, a new book, The Longest War, for the first time describes the conflict from both sides – not only the corridors of American government but also from the first-person accounts of top-level jihadists who have plotted al-Qaeda’s aggressive strategies.

 

Peter L. Bergen is CNN’s national security analyst and the bestselling author of Holy War, Inc. and The Osama bin Laden I Know. Experts have called The Longest War “indispensable history” and “rich with new details, elevated by careful analysis, and quickened by riveting characters and stories.”

 

Join us as we facilitate a conversation with Mr. Bergen about the past, present and future of the long war with al-Qaeda and its implications for America’s security.

Confirmed speaker:

PETER L. BERGEN, National Security Analyst, CNN and Author, “The Longest War”
