James Moore will be talking with former Marine Lieutenant Josh Rushing today at 7am. He will discuss his new book Mission Al Jazeera and his journey from a small Texas town to a 14-year career in the Marines including acting as a liason for the military with Hollywood to his most recent stint with the Al Jazeera English network.

Rushing will appear on The Daily Show with John Stewart on July 16th.

"Al Jazeera is the most influential Arab voice outside of mosques. It is the largest shaper of ideology," Rushing explained in a Time magazine article shortly after he was hired in the fall of 2005. "I've dedicated my adult life to the health and security of the United States and to representing the best of American ideas. I will maintain my credibility by continuing to do that."
