What really happened on the night of Osama bin Laden's death? Famed investigative journalist Seymour examines this critical question in his new book, but The Killing of Osama Bin Laden is also a broader indictment of the Obama administration's foreign policy in the Middle East, particularly concerning Syria and Turkey.
Seymour Hersh has written for the New Yorker and the London Review of Books, as well as serving as a Washington correspondent for the New York Times. He established himself at the forefront of investigative journalism more than four decades ago with an exposé of the massacre in My Lai, Vietnam, for which he won a Pulitzer Prize. Since then he has uncovered stories such as Kissinger's role in extending the Vietnam War as well as the military torture regime at Abu Ghraib prison. He has won the George Polk prize five times, the National Magazine Award for Public Interest twice, the LA Times Book Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
You can read the excerpt from The Killing of Osama Bin Laden, written by him, which introduces the reader to dramatically different details than the official narrative disseminated by the White House, Pentagon and CIA.
