In this Conversations With History interview host Harry Kreisler talks with Pulitzer prize winning author of Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan and Bin Laden Steve Coll. After 20 minutes of discussing his journalistic methods, Coll tells the story of the rise of Radical Islam in Afghanistan and how America's abandonment of the region after the Cold War led to a precarious situation with Pakistan supporting the rise of Radical Islam in order to gain leverage against India. Out of this rise of Radical Islam came the harboring of figures such as Osama Bin Laden. Scheuer suggests some of the key points at which the events leading up to the attacks could've been handled differently which would've most likely prevented 9/11.
