CFR and HBO Screening of the new HBO Documentary Manhunt

On May 2, 2011, Osama bin Laden was killed by Navy SEALs in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The raid lasted forty minutes, but the hunt for bin Laden took two decades. The search began with a team of mostly female CIA analysts, known in intelligence circles as the Sisterhood, who were trying to take down bin Laden before most even knew his name. Piecing together scraps of intelligence, they uncovered al-Qaeda and warned Washington of this new impending threat. Their warnings were repeatedly ignored until the 9/11 attacks, when all the rules changed.

Please note special timing.
