Behind The Bin Laden Raid - Separating Myths From Fact

Behind The Bin Laden Raid - Separating Myths From Fact

We chat with author Mark Bowden about the raid that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden -- and what it revealed about the leaders who orchestrated the mission.

The raid that killed Osama bin Laden was one of the most scrutinized news events in modern memory. But the secretive nature of the mission and the hyper-politicized environment in which it occurred have made it difficult to separate facts from myth. Mark Bowden is one of the few journalists who was granted direct access to President Barack Obama to discuss the raid. Bowden joins us to share what he learned, and what it revealed about the leaders who carried out the mission.
