"Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden from 9/11 to Abbottabad" by Peter Bergen
For more than two decades, he was the target of intense scrutiny, with an entire unit at the CIA dedicated to tracking his every move and trying to determine what violence he might perpetrate. When 9/11 confirmed Osama bin Laden's intentions, these same analysts and operatives were now blamed for failing to prevent it, though they had spent years warning about the possibility of an attack.
An official selection of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, the documentary Manhunt tells the remarkable true story of the two-decade search for the world's most notorious terrorist. Directed by Greg Barker, the documentary plays on HBO this month and is based on the book by journalist, Peter Bergen.
Peter Bergen is the author of four books about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda, three of which were New York Times bestsellers. He is CNN’s national security analyst and a director at the New America Foundation.
