The U.S. Navy SEALs who killed al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden in his compound in Pakistan also gathered valuable intelligence on al-Qaeda. Nelly Lahoud, a senior fellow in New America’s International Security program, who has read all of the seized documents—hundreds of thousands of pages—discusses her forthcoming book about what these materials reveal.

This program is part of a series exploring the history of al-Qaeda and is presented to contextualize the Museum's digital exhibition Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden, based on the special exhibition of the same name. Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden was made possible with support of presenting sponsors Alexandria Real Estate Equities, Inc. and Palantir Technologies, as well as Lockheed Martin.
