Swisher, manager of investigative journalism at the Al Jazeera Media Network, was in Ramallah as the body of Arafat was exhumed. 

In 2012, he produced and reported the exclusive documentary film "What Killed Arafat?", the result of a 9-month investigation that revealed the presence of radioactive polonium in the late Palestinian leader's personal effects.  

He also delivered the 2011 scoop known as the "Palestine Papers", the largest public disclosure of confidential negotiating records in the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Prior to his current position, Swisher served as a Doha-based field reporter, covering the 2008 Presidential elections, the war in Afghanistan, ethnic strife in Kyrgyzstan, and the ongoing Arab-Israeli conflict.  

He is the author of The Palestine Papers and The Truth About Camp David.
