- Former Navy SEAL wrote tell-all about the Osama bin Laden raid
- Talks about ‘feisty’ female CIA agent who spent 5 years tracking bin Laden
- Similarities exist between that woman, who he only refers to as ‘Jen’, and the lead character Carrie Mathison in Showtime’s CIA drama Homeland
- Interview and book detail final moments of bin Laden’s life – and how the SEALs shot him dead as his arms were hidden beneath his body
The Navy SEAL who wrote the controversial book detailing the assassination of Osama bin Laden credits a ‘feisty’ female CIA analyst for leading them to their target, after spending five years hunting him.
Author Matt Bissonnette – whose identity was revealed even though he wrote the tell-all book under the pen name of Mark Owen – only refers to the woman using the pseudonym ‘Jen’ in his book.
The similarities between her backstory and that of the lead character in the hit television series Homeland are obvious.
During an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes, the former SEAL spoke publicly for the first time about his book No Easy Day and described the role that ‘Jen’ played in the bin Laden raid.
