Sunday, July 30 at 8 and 11 p.m. ET
Hosted by Oliver North
This week's special live edition of "War Stories with Oliver North" will bring you the latest from the Middle East and then return you to the 1980s and the birth of Hezbollah. We'll feature exclusive interviews with former Hezbollah hostages Terry Anderson, held six years and nine months, and David Jacobsen, held 17 months.
You will also hear from the CIA spy, Duane Clarridge, who helped organize the elaborate sting to capture terrorist, Fawaz Yunis. The Amal Militia was — and still is — closely aligned with Hezbollah. Yunis was involved in the hijacking of TWA flight 847 and the murder of passenger Robert Stethem, a U.S. Navy diver. The capture of Yunis, in "Operation Goldenrod", marked the first time U.S. intelligence was able to take down a terrorist outside America and return him to the U.S. for trial.
From January 1983 to November 1986, Oliver North was the U.S. government's counter-terrorism coordinator. During his tenure the world witnessed a dramatic increase in hijackings, bombing and kidnappings by radical Islamic terrorists. His experience will provide you with a unique and unprecedented perspective on Hezbollah, the deadliest Shia terrorist organization in the world.
