A new documentary hosted by CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen will examine why the United States has failed to hunt down the world’s most wanted man: al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden. A coproduction between Investigation Discovery (ID) and BBC’s news division, ID Investigates: Why is Bin Laden Alive will air in the United States on ID on Sept. 12. The film will tackle popular conspiracy theories around bin Laden and explain why the terrorist leader has continued to elude capture. Bergen, one of the only journalists to interview bin Laden, has reported on Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and counterterrorism for several US media outlets. The film will also feature one of two TV interviews ever conducted with Dalton Fury, Delta Force commander at Tora Bora in Afghanistan.
