Upcoming Public Program: "10 Years Later: Operation Neptune Spear"


Join us tomorrow, Wednesday, April 28, at 12 p.m. ET, for "10 Years Later: Operation Neptune Spear," our next program in the When the World Changes digital conversation series.

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum has partnered with The HISTORY Channel to produce a documentary film which provides a sweeping account of the events that led to the discovery of Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, and the raid which resulted in his death. In advance of the film being released on May 2, 2021, exactly 10 years after the raid, Robert M. Gates, then secretary of defense, and Leon E. Panetta, then director of the CIA, discuss how policy, intelligence, and military decision-making converged during the hunt for bin Laden.

The When the World Changes series is dedicated to offering insight, empathy, and expertise toward past and present challenges by drawing on lessons learned from 9/11 history: how strength was expressed in a time of sorrow, how unimaginable problems were solved, and how tragedy and adversity were met with resilience and hope.

Live captioning will be provided for this program. Join us at 911memorial.org/watch.
