Journalist Souad Mekhennet has interviewed some of the top operatives in Al-Qaida, the Taliban and ISIS.  A Muslim woman who was born and raised in Germany, Mekhennet sees her reporting as a way to bridge cultures that often misunderstand each other. She joins guest host Courtney Collins to talk about what fuels Islamic extremists, which she writes about in her memoir “I Was Told to Come Alone: My Journey Behind the Lines of Jihad”(St. Martin’s Press).
