Ex-CIA director reveals what it was like inside the situation room during the Bin Laden raid

Business Insider's US Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell sat down with Brennan at an Intersport Leadership Summit at The Masters on April 6.

In 2011, John Brennan was one of the few people in the White House situation room who watched the US military's elite SEAL Team 6 take out Osama Bin Laden at his compound in Abottabad, Pakistan.

The minutes seemed like hours, Brennan said. It went on and on. Even after I knew it seemed like the raid was successful, waiting for our forces that carried out that raid to get out of Pakistani air space safely — because it was a fair distance they had to travel — it was just white knuckles.

Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda: Lessons from the Abbottabad Documents

Osama bin Laden and al-Qaeda:
Lessons from the Abbottabad Documents

The Navy SEAL team that ended Osama bin Laden's life last May also grabbed a massive collection of digital and physical material from his hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Seventeen of the documents the SEALs swept up that night were released earlier this month by the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point, which also produced a detailed report analyzing and contextualizing the writings by al-Qaeda's most important leader and several of his top lieutenants. The New America Foundation is proud to host the lead author of that report, Letters from Abbottabad: Bin Ladin Sidelined?, for a discussion of the Abbottabad documents and what they tell us about the past and future of al-Qaeda.

SCRIPT

A doll depicting former Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden that was developed by the CIA was one of several items on display in Los Angeles Thursday ahead of an upcoming auction. The doll and numerous other objects are set to go to auction Nov. 20 through the Nate D. Sanders online auction house.

The Osama bin Laden doll was reportedly developed by the CIA as part of a secret project called Devil Eyes in a bid to dissaude Afghan children of supporting him and Al Qaeda. Created by G.I. Joe inventor Donald Levine, the doll - which was also developed with manufacturers in China - has a starting bid of $2,500 (€2,004). Only three of the dolls are known to have been produced.

Other items set to be auctioned include the Academy Award for Best Actor won by James Cagney in 1942 for Yankee Doodle Dandy ($800,000; €641,234) and Michael Schumacher's worn racing suit from the 2006 British Grand Prix ($17,500; €14,027).
