On Friday night, Bill Maher spoke to Michael Scheuer, former head of the now defunct C.I.A. Bin Laden Unit and author of the upcoming book,Marching Toward Hell: America & Islam After Iraq. His previous book, Imperial Hubris: Why the West is Losing the War on Terror, was mentioned in one of Bin Laden's recent tapes mentioning that if the U.S. wanted to understand why the Iraq War is a losing war, then they need to read Scheuer's book. The conversation continues to discuss Bin Laden's labeling as a terrorist, his "metrosexuality" or possible marriage, and a very awkward few moments in the studio about Israel.

After the jump, another awkward interview from the same show, this time with Bjørn Lomborg who challenges popular Global Warming theories.

The interview begins at 7:45.
