Hunting Osama Bin Laden

NPR's Morning Edition had the first part of an interesting interview with Gary Schroen:
Gary Schroen is one of the CIA's most respected and experienced spies. Two days after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, his bosses handed him a new mission targeting Osama bin Laden: "Bring his head back in a box" is the phrase Schroen remembers. Five days later, the veteran operative and his six-man team were on a plane.
Part two, to air tomorrow, reportedly includes Schroen's criticism of the Bush administration for failing to follow through with initial plans to capture or kill Bin Laden.
