The U.S. Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden in his compound in Pakistan also gathered valuable intelligence on al-Qaeda. In her recently published book, The Bin Laden Papers: How the Abbottabad Raid Revealed the Truth about al-Qaeda, Its Leader and His Family, Nelly Lahoud, a senior fellow in New America’s International Security program, distills the content of nearly 6,000 pages of Arabic language private communications that were recovered during the raid. In conversation with Museum Director, Clifford Chanin, Lahoud reveals al-Qaeda’s closely guarded plans and ambitions and provides additional insight about its role in international terrorism.
