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. Participants Featured Speaker Nelly Lahoud Associate Professor at the Department of Social Sciences, U.S. Military Academy at West Point Senior Associate, Combating Terrorism Center at West Point.
