A former Marine turned al-Jazeera correspondent will appear as a guest on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” on Monday night.

Josh Rushing, a former public affairs officer who got out as a captain in 2004, recently released a book, “Mission al-Jazeera: Build a Bridge, Seek the Truth, Change the World,” covering his time as the main liaison between the military and the controversial Qatar-based news network during the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, as well as his new job working for the network.

Rushing entered the national spotlight after the documentary “Control Room” featured him working with al-Jazeera officials as a spokesman at U.S. Central Command’s forward headquarters in Qatar.

The Daily Show airs at 11 p.m. Eastern time. Check local listings for other showings.
