How they got Bin Laden

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Television - LU­CAS TOWNSEND

IT’S one of those where were you when you heard mo­ments, the day news broke about the death of the world’s most wanted man – Osama Bin Laden.

But what has never been known is the de­tailed and lengthy in­ves­ti­ga­tion the US Army and spe­cialised agen­cies con­ducted to track down the man con­sid­ered a ghost for al­most 10 years.

The drama- filled doco Tar­get­ing Bin Laden, screen­ing tonight on ABC1, fea­tures key in­ter­views from high- level play­ers in the White House and CIA, in­clud­ing Amer­ica’s National Se­cu­rity Ad­viser Tom Donilon and an ac­com­plished Barak Obama giv­ing de­tailed in­sight into the top- se­cret mis­sion.

From fine- tooth comb sur­veil­lance to the im­ple­men­ta­tion of US Navy SEALS on the day of in­va­sion, this is a be­hind- the- scenes look at one of the most piv­otal days in modern his­tory.
