DISCOVERY CHANNEL ONE HOUR SPECIAL “KILLING BIN LADEN” PROVIDES SECOND-BY-SECOND ACCOUNT OF HISTORIC OPERATION
An intimate account of the bin Laden operation – from the time the crucial intelligence was gathered through the burial at sea. Explore the details of how the operation was planned and executed, and see through the eyes of the highly-trained Seal Team 6.
KILLING BIN LADEN will also investigate how intelligence gathered the information that led to Bin Laden’s hideout, including the tracking of a senior Al Qaeda courier. In August 2010, investigators tagged the heavily fortified compound, where the courier lived with his brother, as a possible terrorist hideout. Once intelligence experts were convinced that the compound contained a senior “high value” terrorist target with a strong likelihood that it could be Osama Bin Laden himself, they launched the plan that would end with U.S. Special Forces making a pre-dawn raid on the compound by helicopter.
