Target bin Laden

You've seen the Hollywood movie ... but what really happened in the hunt for Osama bin Laden?

On May 2, 2011 an elite team of U.S. Navy SEALs entered a compound on the outskirts of Abbottabad, Pakistan and killed the world's most wanted terrorist, ending a decade-long search for the man behind Sept. 11. Almost two years later, the U.S. government has still not officially revealed details about how Osama bin Laden was traced to Pakistan, or how he remained hidden for so long. With the release of Kathryn Bigelow's Oscar-nominated film Zero Dark Thirty, there are more questions and controversies around what Hollywood calls "the greatest manhunt in history".

Was torture instrumental in finding Osama bin Laden? Did a beautiful CIA heroine lead the hunt for America's public enemy No. 1? Bob McKeown does a reality check on the movie, and follows up on what's happened since that historic raid in the fifth estate's Target bin Laden.

In 2011, the fifth estate did an in-depth reconstruction of the hunt for Osama bin Laden, from his compound in Abbottabad to the Situation Room in the White House, with exclusive interviews from intelligence agents and senior military officers. Now, Bob McKeown has an update on what has become of some of the key players since then.
