I have a more than passing interest in the special Forces, as they’re known, and I’m still on about two of the movies centering on the death of Osama bin Laden with, I’m sure even more on the way.
I’m the wimp of the family, serving briefly in the Royal Air Force in Aden, as it was then known, and Bahrain.
The American version of the SAS, from which it draws many of its practices, is the equally famous Navy SEAL Team 6, the band of warriors who eventually killed bin Laden.
But it was a CIA crew led by a determined female agent, the glamorous (naturally 😉 Maya, played by Jessica Chastain, who ultimately pinpointed the Al Qaeda chief’s whereabouts — in the movie version, at least.
“Now, 3 US senators, ‘question the accuracy’ of at least one of the films, Zero Dark Thirty,” I posted yesterday.
Which of the 2 movies is accurate, if either of them are?
Only the CIA knows, and it’s not telling. But for thud and blunder I’d have to go with Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden.
