Organizer/Author
Hamid MirHamid

Mir is best known internationally as the sole journalist to have interviewed Osama Bin Laden, both before as well as once shortly after the 9/11 attacks. As a Pakistani journalist who specializes in investigative reporting in Pakistan and abroad, Mir has exposed various corruption scandals and has put major political figures, including Pervez Musharraf, Condoleeza Rice, and Hamid Karzai, on the hot seat on Geo TV, Pakistan’s most popular TV station.

In this lecture, Mir will discuss the precarious state of the Pakistani government, the effectiveness of U.S. foreign policy in the region, and what it’s like to be an investigative journalist in one of the most turbulent regions in the world.
