"The massive truck bomb that destroyed the American Embassy in Beirut in April 1983 targeted the symbol of the United States in Lebanon. The why and how of that terrorist incident have frequently been explored. The human consequences have recieved less attention. In her book, Practicing forgiveness: Aftermath of the First Suicide Bombing of an American Target - Beirut, Lebanon, Margaret Powell has weitten movingly about those human consequences. She describes what happened to the McIntyre family when their husband and father, my friend and coleague, Bill McINtyre was killed. Mrs. Powell rushed from the United States to Beirut to care for Bill's widow, also injured in the attack, and bring her home. Her story touched me deeply with its pathos, humor, courage, and compassion. A wonderful book.U.S. Ambassador to Lebanon, Robert S. Dillon.
The Inside Story of the Mission to Kill Osama Bin Laden
Author: Chuck Pfarrer
Publisher: Hachette UK
On May 2, 2011, at 1:03 a.m. in Pakistan, a satellite uplink was sent from the town of Abbottabad crackling into the situation room of the White House in Washington, D.C.: 'Geronimo, Echo, KIA'. These words, spoken by a Navy SEAL, put paid to Osama bin Laden's three-decade-long career of terror. This is the story of Bin Laden's relentless hunters and how they took down the terrorist mastermind, told by Chuck Pfarrer, a former assault element commander of SEAL Team Six. After talking to members of the SEAL team involved in the raid, Pfarrer shares never-before-revealed details of the historic raid and the men who planned and conducted it in an exclusive boots-on-the-ground account of what happened during each minute of the mission - both inside the building and outside. Pfarrer takes readers inside the operation as the SEALs flew over the wall of Bin Laden's shabby compound and then penetrated deeper and deeper into the terrorist's lair, telling us just what it looked, sounded, and smelled like in that sweltering Pakistani suburb. He takes us to the exact spot where the al-Qaeda leader was cowering when the bullet entered his head. SEAL Target Geronimo is an explosive story of unparalleled valour, clockwork military precision, and deadly accuracy carried out by one of the most elite fighting forces in the world - the U.S. Navy's SEAL Team Six.
