In 2011, President Obama announced "The United States has conducted an operation that killed Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al-Qaeda."
The killing of Osama bin Laden has been hailed as one of the Obama administration's greatest foreign policy triumphs — but a new report alleges the administration's been lying about crucial details of the raid for years.
That's if you believe the work of veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, who published an extensive essay in the London Review of Books, which outlines an alternate history of bin Laden's death.
