    1. The plot is simple enough. The government will release its in-corroborative version of events, most main stream media will dutifully sex up the story for the general consumption, and both will stick to this story as now their credibility depends on it. Years down the line, after much hours of painstaking effort some eccentric writer like Seymour Hersh will eventually challenge this version, but few people will believe him as for most people old news is water under the bridge, who by now are comp [...]


    2. Seymour M. Hersh is a well-respected investigative journalist who has been published in The New Yorker, The New York Times and the London Review of Books. This book, The Killing of Osama Bin Laden, was originally published in several issues of the London Review of Books. I highly recommend reading it for those who wish to stay informed of American foreign policy. This is a slim book (124 pages), but it is packed with information regarding the complex nature of American foreign policy, primarily [...]


    3. Seymour Hersh’s “The Killing of Osama bin Laden” goes beyond talking about bin Laden, digging further into the war against ISIS, Benghazi and concerns with Iraq, Turkey, Russia, China, and Syria. For readers of the London Review of Books, much of this small book is from Hersh’s articles spanning May 21, 2015 to January 7, 2016. Though I’d read them as they were published, it was helpful to read them together in this 124 page brief on the current state of the War in the Middle East. A q [...]


    4. An interesting read but it felt rather biased to me, and often took the road of sensationalism and conspiracy theories.


    5. Seymour Hersh is an outstanding reporter, probably one of America’s preeminent journalists of the late 20th/early 21st century. This is the man who broke the story of the Mai Lai massacre in Vietnam, did much to break the story of Israel’s nascent nuclear weapons programme in the 1980’s, and then struck again during the 2003 Iraq war when he revealed the scandal that was Abu Ghraib. But perhaps his most controversial story has been his claims regarding the bin Laden raid. Whereas the narra [...]


    6. Hersh has been exposing the lies and misrepresentations made by those in power for decades. This book demonstrates that he continues to be one the best, if not the best, investigative journalist working today.Those unacquainted with Hersh's recent work and the revelations contained in this short volume should read this comprehensive review by user Alex.The only quibble I would have is with the editing. The book is a collection of articles that originally appeared during 2013 and 2016 in the Lon [...]


    7. This is a compilation of Hersh's articles published in the New Yorker and the London Review of Books -- the first one is about bin Laden, and the others are about American involvement in Syria. I'd hoped that the articles would be expanded and edited for a book version, but nope. They jump around, there's a fair amount of repetition, and they'd be easier to follow if you've got your hooks really firmly into what was happening in August of 2013. Which, I admit, I do not. Anyway. The gist of the b [...]


    8. Seymour Hersch, a veteran investigative reporter (the My Lai massacre during the Vietnam war) did not get enough attention for his report on the killing of Bin Laden, which is put in book form here, along with accounts of the US involvement in Syria. A must read for all, whether you accept his reporting or not. What really happens in government is not simple, not easy, and perhaps nothing like the "story" we are told. Yet we seem less interested and less concerned with what's really going on.


    9. When it comes to investigative journalism, you'll be hard pressed to find someone more important than Seymour Hersh. From his reporting on Vietnam, to the Kennedy administration, to war crimes in Iraq, Hersh is always displaying to the world the worst of human nature with none of the cynicism or self-absorbed personality ticks so prevalent in modern journalism. Hersh writes the truth and then let's you digest it. And that's what he's done once again with "The Killing of Osama Bin Laden", and let [...]


    10. This is a very short book, which, if you have stayed abreast of most current affairs, will not teach you much new. However, it is a great introduction for why the Middle East remains a hotbed of instability. It may be old fry to point out that the Taliban in Afghanistan were armed and lionised by the CIA, after the USSR's invasion of Afghanistan. However, this book shows that the lessons of history just simply haven't been used.Although it is titled "The Killing of Osama Bin Laden", only the 1st [...]


    11. Don't let the title of the book fool you, this book is more about the the political-bureaucratic-military labyrinth that clouds over Syria. It depicts how the United States Government, along with Turkish, Saudi and Qatari governments supplied money and weapons to the so called 'rebel' faction in war-torn Syria. Who are those 'rebel' groups? Like Robert Fisk illustrates in this lecture (I highly recommend watching it from start to end), these rebel groups are Al-Nusra, Al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI). The [...]


    12. well-known journalist surprisingly peddles conspiracy theories hersh says instead of a heroic mission to Abbottabad, bin Laden was actually simply surrendered by Pakistanis who wanted reward. great evidence should bolster great claims. there is no great evidence here except for the lone peg of his conspiracy stool: supposed anonymous whistleblower who are furthermore unsecretive of their disapproval with Obama. Furthermore, he presents no arguments to contradict or at least grapple with the curr [...]


    13. Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh discloses his account on the secret details involving Osama Bin Laden’s death in Pakistan, the US Navy SEALS and the White House lies. Much of the truth around this event remains a secret. The story encompasses parts of President Obama’s time in office and the effect these world events had on his second term re-election. It certainly made me wonder about the many things we don’t know the truth about. This is undoubtedly for the public’s best interes [...]


    14. The only comment that I would like to make about this book is my perception of the author. The news on television has become so polarized that I don't even watch national news any longer. Therefore when I picked this book up I had been predisposed what I would read, but was wrong. Seymour Hersh has an immaculate record as an investigative reporter, but I expected a completelyliberal and biased approach to the reporting. Instead, he took President Obama to the woodshed and exposed lies of the adm [...]


    15. An interesting book divided in two distinct sections - one related to OBA's death and second related to the Syrian war. For anyone interested in these two events, this books provides a brief and comprehensive narrative of what went down. If you are looking for a detailed account with all the nitty gritty then this book is not for you.


    16. It is hard to figure out who you can believe these days. I don't buy everything he says, but I suspect there is some truth to some things he says.I am not a journalism major, but it does seem odd to me that he quotes many sources but rarely does he disclose who they are. I am not sure how many sources are reliable or not.


    17. An insider reveals all about the inconsistencies of american intelligence and foreign policies based on his experience, focusing on the killing of Osama, Syrian and Iraq conflict. Not much detail nor reference. Just the ramblings of a guy supposedly worked in the centre of all of it. Good info but otherwise just an airplane read.




    18. Insightful look into the political vs military agendas at the time, and how the political climate influenced the series of events.


    19. The title gives you the impression it might be an engaging read. Unfortunately it's not. Although it's probably a good thing someone's out there doing serious investigative journalism, reading it is a real grind without much payoff. About 1/3 of it was actually about the actual Killing of Osama Bin Laden, and most of the rest was either tangents that led nowhere or long descriptions of how unnamed source had mentioned to a high-ranking US military official that they had seen a document which nam [...]


    20. As this book clearly tells you; there has been zero progress in the War Against Terror under Obama. You can’t stop terrorism when you are the leading terrorist state. In our country, as Noam points out, terrorism is only what non-allied countries do. This book mentions our secret prisons in Diego Garcia (after the island’s original inhabitants were forced to leave forever – see John Pilger’s work). Obama intervened in Libya without consulting congress. Gaddafi was killed by sodomizing hi [...]



    21. An alternative account of the killing of Osama bin Laden and the Syrian Civil War. Extremely critical of the Obama's administration purported perceptions of the Middle East, Turkey, Russia & China, and the Assad Regime. More or less-Turkey, despite being a NATO member, is hoping to restore something like the Ottoman empire and is using a "rat line" to support fundamentalist/extremist opposition to Assad-Importantly, despite the mainstream line, there is NO "moderate" opposition to Assad-Assa [...]


    22. Originally posted at Book of BoganAfter reading this book, I feel like it should be subtitled "and other lies the government tells you" because only approximately 1/3rd to 1/4 of the book is actually give over to the purported events surrounding the death of Osama Bin Laden, while the rest is devoted to the ongoing global war on terror, along with its attendant political spin and lies.Hersch uses interviews with people who were 'on the ground' in Pakistan, and who purport to have real knowledge [...]


    23. सेमुर हर्ष, शोधपत्रकारितेमधील हा बाप माणूस.चार लेखांचा संग्रह असलेलं हे पुस्तक, पण लेखकाचा जबरदस्त अभ्यास दर्शवणारं. एकेक मुद्दा सडेतोडपणे मांडलेला आहे. लादेनच्या मृत्यूबद्दलचा लेख तर अफ [...]


    24. This book immediately gripped my attention with the harrowing truth and the realisation of being lied to. I am not American and therefore I shouldn't feel somewhat betrayed but I do. We all know that politics is a build up of fabrication to detour the truth and unprepared questions. Seymour M. Hersh, (my first book that I have read of his) has this premeditated collaboration of truth that he shares with us (his readers) and makes us aware that not everything we hear, or even see, is the truth. T [...]


    25. The Killing Of Osama Bin Laden, by Seymour M. Hersh, is my one hundred and sixty-fourth book that I have received and read from . This is my first book that I have read from this author. The reason i wanted to read this book is, I have been deployed their three times with the military.The book was more than the killing of Osama Bin Laden. Osama Bin Laden is just one part of the book. The other parts the author talks about Obama and the United States policies with the war with ISIS, and their con [...]


    26. Seymour M. Hersh is one of the greatest investigative reporters in USA history, so when he writes something it is always interesting to read about itThis short book is a collection of a few articles, the main dealing with the operation to killBin Landen and its aftermath, and it raises valid questions about an operation that was sobadly handled. The most contested part of the official story was the burial at sea, and theauthor really tears it up. It is not a book about conspiracies and things li [...]


    27. Seymour Hersh's book ​"The Killing of Osama Bin Laden​"​ may be somewhat mistitled, in that it's half about bin Laden's killing, and half about mistakes in Syria, and all about how government does, or has to, keep secrets regarding matters of intelligence. Hersch has had an extraordinary career as a journalist, and has broken several major stories during his time. As such, he has good accesss to government sources. As far as this book goes, some of his information may be right, and some ma [...]
