Osama Bin Laden by Oxford University Press USA
Product Description
9/11 almost instantaneously remade American politics and foreign policy. The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Patriot Act, water boarding and Guantanamo are examples of its profound and far-reaching effects. But despite its monumental impact--and a deluge of books about al-Qaeda and Islamist terrorism--no one has written a serious assessment of the man who planned it, Osama bin Laden. Available biographies depict bin Laden as an historical figure, the mastermind behind 9/11, but no longer relevant to the world it created. These accounts, Michael Scheuer strongly believes, have contributed to a widespread and dangerous denial of his continuing significance and power.

In this book, Scheuer provides a much-needed corrective--a hard-headed, closely reasoned portrait of bin Laden, showing him to be a figure of remarkable leadership skills, strategic genius, and considerable rhetorical abilities. The first head of the CIA's bin Laden Unit, where he led the effort to track down bin Laden, Scheuer draws from a wealth of information about bin Laden and his evolution from peaceful Saudi dissident to America's Most Wanted. Shedding light on his development as a theologian, media manipulator, and paramilitary commander, Scheuer makes use of all the speeches and interviews bin Laden has given as well as lengthy interviews, testimony, and previously untranslated documents written by those who grew up with bin Laden in Saudi Arabia, served as his bodyguards and drivers, and fought alongside him against the Soviets. The bin Laden who emerges from these accounts is devout, talented, patient, and ruthless; in other words, a truly formidable and implacable enemy of the West.

--Julian Borger, The Guardian

Nicolas Cage to play Osama bin Laden hunter in comedy Army of One - The Guardian

Nicolas Cage will play an ordinary American who sets out to hunt down Osama Bin Laden in director Larry Charles’s satirical comedy Army of One, according to the Hollywood Reporter . Based loosely on the story of Gary Faulkner, a Colorado... The former staff writer for long-running TV sitcom Seinfeld has signed a deal with Hollywood superproducers Bob and Harvey Weinstein to release the movie under their new TWC-Dimension banner. Charles is due to shoot in March from a screenplay by Draft Day’s Scott Rothman and Rajiv Joseph, for a proposed release in cinemas by the end of the year. Faulkner’s story was detailed in a 2010 GQ magazine article by journalist Chris Heath which told of his missions to Pakistan armed with a sword he’d bought on a home-shopping network, a pistol and a pair of night-vision goggles. The ponytailed eccentric, nicknamed the “Rocky Mountain Rambo”, also appeared on the David Letterman talk show that same year to discuss his determination to pursue the terrorist leader and belief that he had been chosen by God for the mission. “What this is about is the American people and the world,” Faulkner told reporters at a US airport upon his return from an 11th mission to Pakistan. “We can’t let people like this scare us. We don’t get scared by people like this. The project looks a perfect fit for Charles, who is not involved in the controversial new Baron Cohen comedy Grimsby. Source: www.theguardian.com
