The United States of Jihad with  Peter Bergen

Thursday, February 25

6:30 PM


The tragic, ISIS-inspired attack in San Bernardino was a harsh reminder that “homegrown” terrorism is a real and present danger. CNN national security analyst and New York Times bestselling author Peter Bergen has been chronicling Islamist terrorism through groundbreaking reporting on the Middle East, al-Qaeda, and homeland security for more than twenty years.  His new book United States of Jihad:  Investigating America’s Homegrown Terrorists, gives an unprecedented look at the factors that lead to the radicalization of American citizens and offers expert insights into the shape of the threat confronting us. Join Bergen as he shares the forces that have led Americans like Anwar al-Awlaki, Samir Kahn, the Tsarnaev brothers, and so many others down the path to terrorism and investigates the effectiveness of counterterrorism strategies from the FBI’s efforts to those of Imam Magid, who is spearheading an effort to reach fundamentalist youths before it is too late.


United States of Jihad will be available for sale and signing at the event.
