And we’re joined in the studio by Abdel Bari Atwan, the editor-in-chief, Al Quds Al-Arabi. Al Quds Al-Arabi is an Arabic-language daily based in London with a circulation of 100,000. A few years ago, he traveled to the mountains of Tora Bora in Eastern Afghanistan — where the U.S. is currently bombing — to interview Osama bin Laden.
