For eight years, Wadah Khanfar was the director general of Al Jazeera. He resigned in 2011 amid allegations that the network's coverage of the Iraq war was influenced by pressure from the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency. He bounced back by starting The Sharq Forum, which describes itself as "an independent international network whose mission is to develop long-term strategies to ensure the political development, social justice and economic prosperity of the people of Al-Sharq."
