Five Essential Reads about Osama bin Laden

We’ve been building and structuring a database of more than 25,000 of the best articles ever published, so that we can make it easy for readers to find something good to read. To get a sense of just how amazing this database is, you’ll have to wait a few weeks for the full launch of Byliner.com.

As a preview, though, Byliner editors are going to periodically dive into that archive and gather up some essential reading. Today, for obvious reasons, Byliner presents an Osama bin Laden Reader:

The Search for Osama, by Jane Mayer
The Dark Art of Interrogation, by Mark Bowden
The Long Hunt for Osama, by Peter Bergen
The Man Who Was Supposed To Save Us, by Tom Junod
My Father, the Terrorist, by Omar Laden

Osama Bin Laden was named the CIA’s Most Wanted Terrorist in 2001. It took 10 years, but last month America finally caught up with him. What happened in between?

GOOD presents an animated timeline of the highs, lows, and cultural milestones of America’s hunt for Bin Laden, from the 9/11 attacks to the raid on his compound in Pakistan and burial at sea.

With President Obama fresh off the press conference podium, a joint USA Today/Gallup poll asked the American public how they feel about the U.S. mission to kill elusive Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. Do they approve of it? Who do they think most deserves credit?
