A Face-to-Face Meeting With Osama bin Laden [Audio]
Today on the Talk Back show we spoke with Edward Girardet, who happens to be one of the only people in the world who was able to interview Osama bin Laden. In the audio link below, you will hear Girardet's description of his 1989 meeting with bin Laden just before the withdraw of Russian troops from Afghanistan. Even as a young man, bin Laden portrayed the sense of arrogance and brutality he's become so famous for. Can you imagine talking about the Bible with one of history's most reviled terrorists or receiving a face-to-face death threat from the man who would later raise an army of suicide bombers? Truly. Stunning. Stuff.
