"The Killing of Osama Bin Laden" is a concise and detail-rich telling of the historic manhunt for the world's number one most-wanted terrorist.
"The Courier" was the key. A mid-level al-Qaeda operative who played a small part in the planning of the 9/11 attacks and was with Bin Laden when he escaped the battle of Tora Bora. Find out who the courier was, and how with one phone call, he eventually led the CIA to Bin Laden's fortress-like mansion in the affluent suburbs of Abbottabad, Pakistan. Years after the trail had gone cold, Osama Bin Laden, was once again within our sights. Finally the largest manhunt in U.S. counterterrorism history was headed to its singular and bloody conclusion if only the President and his team could figure out how to get him before he vanished once again.
The gut punch Osama Bin Laden landed on 9/11 still stings. What he took from country on that terrible day can never be replaced, nor can the lives of the thousands of innocent men, women and children murdered in the name of some crusade. And even though it will still be a long time until we Americans fully heal from the pain of the worst terrorist attacks on our soil, we can rest assured that the man who became the epitome of evil in the modern world will never do this again.
This commemorative ebook edition of the events that led to Bin Laden's death includes details about the courier whose phone call doomed the al-Qaeda leader and the detective work that led the CIA to the front door of his fortress-like mansion compound in an affluent neighborhood of suburban Pakistan.
This book goes out to the brave men and women of the U.S. Military. Your valor and courage make me proud to be an American. Please get home safely.

Must read! If you're looking for a good book about #thekillingofOBL, this is it!
Mark owen's interview and book both disagree with the facts written in this book about how the actual kill was achieved, but still worth a dollar for the rest of the info presented
Gripping and Real!
This book gets it right. Mark Owen's account of the raid has been disputed and there is no evidence to support it. This version gets the backstory right with great detail and tells the entire story in a concise and suspenseful way. You would think you are reading a Clancy novel.
