The Mysterious Head of the CIA's Counterterrorism Unit

Hosted by

The CIA's campaign against al-Qaeda and the tracking down of Osama bin Laden have been led by a man who's a "collection of contradictions." A chain-smoker who spends hours on a treadmill, he's an enemy of Islamic militants – and a convert to Islam. "Roger" is the first name of the cover identity of the agent who leads the CIA's Counterterrorism Center. He's the architect of "the company's" drone campaign and the "driving force of the Obama administration's embrace of targeted killing," according to Greg Miller, national security correspondent for the Washington Post.
