It doesn t get Cloak and Dagger than this and its a true story Bin Laden was surely the most sought after villain and mass murderer in modern history and we are given a dramatic account of it in Peter Bergen s bookWe are presented with a CIA that made mistakes but was relentless in its 11 year pursuit of Bin Laden well much than 11 years but after 911 the uest became fundamental It is also interesting that there were a substantial number of women in the CIA involved in the track downWe also come away with a greater understanding of al aeda and how it has diminished since the invasion of Afghanistan Still there are many splinter groups that will continue to cause murderous terror in the years to come Afghanistan and Pakistan are such dysfunctional countries that these groups can grow thereI still came away from this book wondering how much had been left out The premise is that Bin Laden s chief courier to the outside world had been discovered and tracked to the Abbottabad compound Apparently there were some safe houses set up there to monitor the Bin Laden compound but this is not elaborated on It would have been very conspicuous to have Westerners in this part of the world I also find it difficult to believe that Bin Laden was not being supported by some in Pakistan s ISI and their military There are many sordid and complex connections between the Pakistani authorities and the Taliban Also it was very much within Pakistan s interest to preserve Bin Laden his existence was a tremendous source of money to Pakistan from the US With his death these sources will now dry upIt is indeed sad that like other evil men Bin Laden changed the course of history We will always remember that horrendous day in September2001 when the attack came Somehow the death of that man however grim it may sound gave me at least a sense of relief and maybe a moral closure

Read & Download Manhunt The Ten Year Search for Bin Laden from 911 to Abbottabad ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub From the author of the New York Times bestselling Holy War Inc this is the definitive account of the decade long manhunt that killed the world’s most wanted man Osama bin LadenAl aeda expert and CNN national security analyst Peter Bergen paints a multidimensional picture of the hunt for bin Laden over the past decade including the operation that killed him. My CNN colleague Peter Bergen s book on the hunt for Osama bin Laden is gripping Bergen is staggeringly brilliant meticulous level headed and writes clearly and factually with understated power yet still manages on target stabs of droll humor like this characterization of bin Laden s dull successor Ayman al Zawahiri calling him a black hole of charismaAccording to Bergen there was never 100 percent certainty among President Obama s advisors and intelligence analysts that bin Laden was at the walled compound The option the president chose was perhaps the riskiest plus he went ahead against the advice of his Defense Secretary Robert Gates who was involved in Jimmy Carter s failed mission to rescue the US hostages in IranHere are some of my favorite uotes Michael Scheuer founder of the CIA s bin Laden unit on why women are great intelligence analysts They seem to have an exceptional knack for detail for seeing patterns and understanding relationships and they also uite frankly spend a great deal less time telling war stories chatting and going outside for cigarettes than the boys If I could have put up a sign saying No boys needs apply I would ve done itBarack Obama from his 2009 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech I face the world as it is and cannot stand idle in the face of threats to the American people For make no mistake evil does exist in the world A nonviolent movement could not have halted Hitler s armies Negotiations cannot convince al aeda s leaders to lay down their arms To say that force is sometimes necessary is not a call to cynicism it is a recognition of history the imperfections of man and the limits of reason Michele Flournoy Undersecretary of Defense for Policy on the plans of Admiral William McRaven to get bin Laden McRaven had a backup for every possible failure and a backup to the failure of the backup and a backup to the failure of the backup of the backupJoint Chiefs Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen on the importance of witnessing in person the rehearsal of the SEALs training for the raid If I am going to send somebody in to die I want tohave the opportunity to look the men in the eye Every single one of them Personally That uote I m not ashamed to say brought me to tearsIf you re looking for an objective read on the strategy behind the take down of bin Laden this is it
