Check out Dr. Ledeen‘s bio:

We will CERTAINLY be discussing his most recent column in Forbes:
And his recent book, co-authored with Lt. General Michael Flynn:
Here is a summary of the book:
Ten years ago we found evidence that al-Qaeda was far more organized and adept than we had previously given them credit for. It took us nearly that long to locate and execute their leader, Osama bin Laden, and we are far from finished. Al-Qaeda has morphed into a much more dangerous, menacing threat: ISIS. A war is being waged against us by radical Islamists, and, as current events demonstrate, they are only getting stronger. This book aims to inform the American people of the grave danger we face in the war on terror―and will continue to face―until our government takes decisive action against the terrorists that want nothing more than to destroy us and our way of life.
For a flavor, Dr. Ledeen was recently interviewed by Jamie Glazov, a friend here in SoCal whose show I’ve hosted a couple of times:
