In 2011, US Navy SEALS stormed an enclosure in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad and killed Osama bin Laden, the man the US had been chasing even before the devastating attacks of 9/11. The news did much to boost President Obama's first term and played a major part in his re-election the following year. However, as Seymour Hersh details, much of the story of that night, as presented to the world, was a lie, and the evidence of what actually went on remains hidden. His investigation has ignited a firestorm of controversy in the world's media. Here, he asks why so much of the mainstream media leapt to defend the White House's discredited narrative. How far do the lies go? And is there a motive behind journalists' refusal to consider a counternarrative?
