The History Channel will feature interviews with President Barack Obama and senior counter-terrorism officials in a two-hour special on the effort to track down and kill Osama bin Laden.
“Targeting Bin Laden,” set to premiere Sept. 6, will a mix dramatic reenactments with news footage to convey the behind-the-scenes work over several administrations to find the al Qaeda leader, according to Reuters.
The special also includes interviews with National Security advisor Tom Donilon, former CIA director Michael Vincent Hayden, and White House Chief Counter-Terrorism advisor John O. Brennan were. The broadcast marks the first time that senior officials in the White House situation room had spoken at length on television about the bin Laden operation, the History Channel notes.
“Targeting Bin Laden” will also be President Obama’s first time opening up about the operation since a “60 Minutes” TV interview in May.
