Holy War, Inc. (2001), a New York Times bestseller,[20] and The Osama bin Laden I Know (2006) were named among the best non-fiction books of the year by The Washington Post.[21] Documentaries based on both books were nominated for Emmy Awards in 2001 and 2006.[22]

Bergen was the recipient of the 2000 Leonard Silk Journalism Fellowship and was the Pew Journalist in Residence at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University in 2001 while writing Holy War, Inc.[23]

His third book, The Longest War: The Enduring Conflict between America and Al-Qaeda (2011), a New York Times bestseller,[24] gave an overview of the War on Terror and was named by the Guardian[25] and Newsweek[26] as one of the key books about terrorism in the past decade. The Longest War also won the Washington Institute's Gold Prize for best book about the Middle East.[27] and was named by Amazon,[28] Kirkus[29] and Foreign Policy[30] as one of the best books of 2011.

Bergen's 2012 New York Times bestseller[31] was Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden From 9/11 to Abbottabad.[32] The Washington Post named Manhunt one of the best non-fiction books of 2012,[33] and The Guardian named it one of the key books on Islamist extremism.[34] It was the 2012 Sunday Times (UK) Current Affairs Book of the Year. The book was awarded the Overseas Press Club Cornelius Ryan Award for best non-fiction book of 2012 on international affairs.[35] The book was the basis of the HBO documentary film, Manhunt: The Search for Bin Laden,[36] which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and won the Emmy award for Outstanding Documentary in 2013.[37] Bergen was Executive Producer of the film.[36] He was awarded the Stephen Ambrose History Award in 2014.[38]

In 2016, Bergen published United States of Jihad: Investigating America's Homegrown Terrorists.[41] It was named one of the best non-fiction books of 2016 by the Washington Post. HBO adapted the book for the documentary film, Homegrown: The Counterterror Dilemma.[42]

Bergen's Trump and His Generals: The Cost of Chaos was published in 2019. The Washington Post described it as "the best single account of Trump's foreign policy to date."[43] Bergen published The Rise and Fall of Osama bin Laden in 2021.

Documentaries edit

Bergen has worked as a correspondent and producer for the National Geographic Channel,[44] Discovery Channel, HBO, Showtime, and CNN Films.[45] He co-produced, with Tresha Mabile, the National Geographic Channel documentary, American War Generals (2014).[46] Bergen and Mabile produced CNN Films' Legion of Brothers, which premiered at Sundance in January 2017.[47] It was released in theaters in June 2017. It was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Politics and Government documentary in 2018.[48] In 2020, together with the producers of Homeland, he produced the Showtime documentary, The Longest War, which documented the CIA's long involvement in Afghanistan.

On May 2, 2016, the five-year anniversary of the death of Osama bin Laden, CNN aired the documentary We Got Him: President Obama, Bin Laden, and the Future of the War on Terror.[49]

In addition to interviewing President Barack Obama in his first sit-down interview in the Situation Room, Bergen also conducted the first in-depth interview with the architect of the bin Laden raid, Admiral William H. McRaven, as well as interviewing senior administration officials including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.[citation needed]

Four of Bergen's books have been made into documentaries for CNN, HBO and National Geographic. The documentaries based on Holy War, Inc. and The Osama bin Laden I Know were nominated for Emmys in 2001 and 2006.[22] Bergen was a producer of those films. Manhunt was the basis of the HBO documentary film, Manhunt,[36] which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Documentary in 2013.[37] Bergen was Executive Producer of the film.[36] HBO adapted United States of Jihad for the 2016 documentary film, Homegrown: The Counterterror Dilemma.[42]

In 1997, as a producer for CNN, Bergen produced bin Laden's first television interview, in which he declared war against the United States for the first time to a Western audience.[50] In 1994, he won the Overseas Press Club Edward R. Murrow award for best foreign affairs documentary for the CNN program Kingdom of Cocaine,[51] which was also nominated for an Emmy.[52]

Bergen co-produced the CNN documentary, Terror Nation, which traced the links between Afghanistan and the bombers who attacked the World Trade Center for the first time in 1993.[53] The documentary, which was shot in Afghanistan during the civil war there and aired in 1994, concluded that the country would be the source of additional anti-Western terrorism.[54] From 1998 to 1999, Bergen worked as a correspondent-producer for CNN.[55] He also produced documentaries on the Clinton administration, the Cali Cartel, the 1994 Republican takeover of Congress, and advances in AIDS research. He was program editor for CNN Impact, a news magazine co-production of CNN and TIME, from 1997 to 1998.[56]

Previously, he worked for CNN Special Assignment as a producer on a wide variety of international and U.S. national stories, including the first network interview with white supremacist author, William Luther Pierce. From 1985 to 1990 he worked for ABC News in New York. In 1983, he traveled to Pakistan for the first time with two friends to make a documentary about the Afghan refugees fleeing the Soviet invasion of their country. The subsequent documentary, Refugees of Faith, was shown on Channel 4 (UK).

Journalism edit

Bergen has reported on al-Qaeda, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, ISIS and counterterrorism and homeland security for a variety of American newspapers and magazines including The New York Times,[57] The Los Angeles Times,[58] Foreign Affairs,[59] The Washington Post,[60] Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic,[61] Rolling Stone,[62] Time,[63] The Nation,[64] The National Interest,[65] Mother Jones,[66] Newsweek,[67] and Vanity Fair.[68] He writes a weekly column for CNN.com.[69]

His story on extraordinary rendition for Mother Jones was part of a package of stories nominated for a 2008 National Magazine Award.[70] He has written for newspapers and magazines around the world such as The Guardian,[71] The Times,[72] The Daily Telegraph,[73] International Herald Tribune,[74] Prospect,[75] El Mundo,[76] La Repubblica,[77] The National,[78] Die Welt,[79] and Der Spiegel.

In 2015, Seymour Hersh criticized Bergen for "view[ing] himself as the trustee of all things Bin Laden"[80] after Bergen wrote a piece for CNN.com disputing what he called Hersh's revisionist account in the London Review of Books about the raid that killed bin Laden. Bergen wrote that Hersh's account was "a farrago of nonsense that is contravened by a multitude of eyewitness accounts, inconvenient facts and simple common sense."[81]
