NeueHouse, Young Professionals in Foreign Policy, and The Soufan Center are pleased to host a screening from the Hulu miniseries The Looming Tower, now available for streaming. Based on Ali Soufan's experiences as an FBI Special Agent, the series follows the pursuit of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in the 90s and the rivalry between the agencies that may have inadvertently led to the 9/11 attacks. Following the screening, Mr. Soufan will join us for a discussion on his FBI life and his current mission of tracking emergent global security issues.
