A Counter-Narrative to Bin Laden's Killing

Seymour Hersh, award-winning investigative journalist and the author of The Killing of Osama Bin Laden (Verso, 2016), first reported his version of tracking and killing of Osama bin Laden last year in the London Review of Books.

He expands his story that runs counter to the version told by the government and reported by other journalists.

The key to his story is a disaffected Pakistani colonel who walked into the American embassy and revealed that bin Laden had been living a mere 50 miles away in the foothills of the mountains in Abbotabad.
