In 2011, an elite group of US Navy SEALS stormed an enclosure in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad and killed Osama bin Laden, the man the United States had begun chasing before the devastating attacks of 9/11. The news did much to boost President Obama's first term and played a major part in his re-election victory of the following year. But much of the story of that night, as presented to the world, was incomplete or a lie. This investigation, which began as a series of essays in the London Review of Books, has ignited a firestorm of controversy in the world media and still leaves many difficult questions unanswered concerning Barack Obama's presidency as well as the success of the international diplomacy conducted by presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

At long last, we can all decide for ourselves what we think of Hersh's story * The Week * One of America's greatest investigative reporters. * New York Times Magazine * It is the demands of state secrecy, their distressing effects on U.S. foreign policy - and ultimately their subversion of the democratic process - that unify the four essays in Seymour Hersh's The Killing of Osama Bin explosive account. * L A Times * The Pulitzer Prize winner builds on his reputation as an iconic investigative journalist, skewering the conventional wisdom about the death of Osama bin Laden. * Kirkus * Quite simply, the greatest investigative journalist of his era -- David Remnick * Editor-in-Chief, New Yorker * Hersh's account is more plausible than the official version and more thought-provoking than the movie Zero Dark Thirty, which dramatised the hunt for Bin Laden... my bet is that he's got closer to the truth about Bin Laden's death than anyone else has yet. * Independent * I've long admired the skill and independence with which Hersh has brought important and concealed information to light -- Ahmed Rashid * New York Review of Books *
