Journalist Mark Bowden on “The Finish” of Osama bin Laden
January 11, 2013
[REBROADCAST] Journalist MARK BOWDEN returns to Radio Times to take us inside the rooms where the decisions were made to take down Osama bin Laden. Having access to President Obama, his national security advisors, and high ranking members of the CIA, the author of 1999âs hugely successful âBlack Hawk Downâ breaks down the intel collaboration from many agencies and the strategy created from their work: âF3EAD,â Find, Fix, Finish, Exploit, Analyze and Disseminate. Bowdenâs new book, âThe Finish: The Killing of Osama Bin Laden,â looks at the huge terrorist tracking data base and the vigilance of the CIA and government that finally identified bin Ladenâs courier, leading to âthe finishâ in Abbottabad, Pakistan.
