KBL: Kill Bin Laden

The events that took place in Abbottabad, Pakistan in the wee hours of 2nd May 2012 still ring a bell to many, and they are about to echo even more. This novel provides an account of what possibly happened when the Special Forces raided Osama Bin Laden’s compound.

This book features three story lines. The first of which narrates the human intelligence work that led to the revelation of the mysterious compound that was likely the hiding place for the terror boss, Osama Bin Laden. In most ways, this is the most satisfying part of the book. This plot strand involves a double leg amputee by the name Charlie Becker who possess Pakistani like features that allow him to pose as a beggar in the neighborhood of one of the most lethal terrorists in the history of humanity while giving vital information to the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia.

The author describes Becker as a retired Army Ranger who lost his legs while fighting in Iraq in 2004 and underwent language training in Guantanamo so as to get back to the fight.

The second plot strands act as the foundation for the raid by the DEVGRU or the Special Warfare Development Group- the new name for SEAL Team Six. The author claims that the government created a full-scale model of the compound where Osama took refuge and staged a full gear drill for the helicopter raid from Fort Campbell, which is estimated to be approximately the same flying distance as the actual mission.

The third plot strand examines the presidential politics. Reading the novel, you will discover that most of the tension comes from the meetings between the then president, Barrack Obama and his intelligence teams and military. The president is featured as a hesitant to approve the raid owing to his reelection until a CIA analyst by the name Spike can provide convincing evidence that Bin Laden actually resided at the compound. A fascinating part of this novel is that the CIA had enough tech to tell from the ashes of the garbage burnt at the compound that its residents fed Arabic and not Pakistani food.

Throughout this fascinating novel, the author’s primary objective is to place the readers in the shoes of the brave, and daring sailors, spies, and soldiers that pulled this desperate mission off. However, Weisman is not above taking pot shots at targets such as John Kerry who is featured as an arrogant meddler and naïve who almost sabotages the undercover operation in Abbottabad after an American secret agent kills two Pakistanis in Jan 2011 (an event that happened).

However, the most surprising part is the author’s depiction of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who is featured as a reliable friend and a good ally of the military.

Kill Bin Laden is an entertaining page turner. What you will love most about this novel is the fact that the author does not shy away from the primary moral question surrounding the raid. Besides from the narrative itself, KBL is a book that makes each human aware of the debt that we owe the brave and courageous men like Charlie Becker and the DEVGRU sailors.

SOAR: A Black Ops Mission

Just before a precedent –upsetting U.S –Chinese weapons treaty signing at a summit held in Beijing China, an undercover CIA operation to place highly sensitive sensors that record low-level nuclear tests near the PRC’s hidden site at Lopnur West of China go terribly wrong.

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) team is captured by Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) fighters. While the clock is ticking and the summit is approaching, the presidents mobilize Task Force 160 and orders a team of Special Warriors to rescue the American intelligence personnel before the Chinese find out what actually happened and cancel the summit which could cause embarrassment to the United States.

With the aid of satellite information, it is revealed that not only that the terrorists have captured the Americans covert agents but also have with them a 30-year-old capacitor fused nuclear device obtained from the Chinese military.

Within a couple of hours, the NROF satellite indicates that the IMU have somehow armed the device and the photos taken show the IMU taking the hostages and the nuke to Pamir and Afghanistan where the remainder of IMU still hide out.

On the other hand, the NSA intercepts communications that reveal that the Chinese president has indeed dispatched Special Forces of the Liberation Army to track down the terrorists and retrieve the capacitor. The only good news that the American can cling to is that Beijing does not know that the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan is holding hostage six American undercover agents.

Now the U.S. team must not only race against time to beat the Special forces from the liberation army so that they can rescue the American hostages, but they must also take with them an expert from the department of energy to defuse the old nuke without leaving any single American fingerprints.

SOAR is a significant military based novel; it can be described as an action film in book form, that with well written without literary pretense. The scenario featured in this story is one of a kind. The author understands how to maintain weapons tech from the extensive details about the people who use it.
