Peter Bergen's 'Holy War, Inc.'

Robert Siegel speaks with Peter Bergen, author of the book Holy War, Inc. and CNN's terrorism analyst about the numerous arrests worldwide of suspected al-Qaeda members. Bergen says most of the arrests are of low-level operatives, and even some people who aren't al-Qaeda but have been accused of plotting terrorist acts against Western targets.
