Nearly 10 years after 9/11, a U.S. Special Forces team killed Osama bin Laden. Notably, bin Laden was found and shot in Pakistan, not in the remote mountains of neighboring Afghanistan. What does this mean for the battle against violent extremism? What about for U.S.-Pakistani relations? GPS breaks it down for you with an all-star show, including two guests who helped spearhead the hunt for bin Laden over the last decade.
Condoleezza Rice, the former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor to President George W. Bush, sits down with Fareed to talk about her administration’s efforts to capture the 9/11 mastermind and just what bin Laden's death means to her personally.
Then retired General Michael Hayden, who headed up both the National Security Agency and the CIA for President George W. Bush, talks about tracking bin Laden from the time they first discovered the courier who led to bin Laden in 2007 to the interrogation methods used to glean this information.
Then a panel of experts delves in to what this means for the future of Pakistan, the country where bin Laden hid in plain sight for years. How did Pakistan’s intelligence services miss the world’s #1 terrorist right under their noses? Or did they? And what does it mean to see Pakistanis protesting the death of bin Laden? Joining Fareed this week are:
– Husain Haqqani, the Pakistani Ambassador to Washington, D.C. and former journalist
– Richard Haass, the President of the Council on Foreign Relations
– Jugnu Mohsin, one of Pakistan’s top journalists and editor of The Friday Times
