In this presentation, CHDS faculty member Erik Dahl discusses the lessons learned from the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden. Although the raid on bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad has been widely discussed, less is known about how the American intelligence and counterterrorism communities found the al Qaeda leader in the first place. What worked, and what didn’t, during that ten year search? Dahl, an Assistant Professor of National Security Affairs at the Naval Postgraduate School, relies on publicly available material to tell the fascinating story of the search for bin Laden, and argues that the success of the hunt marks an important change in the way the American intelligence community does its work.
