Documentary: Last-minute doubts on bin Laden raid
Special: Experts raised last-minute doubts that almost stopped bin Laden raid
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A new documentary reveals that a last-minute double-check of intelligence before the raid that killed Osama bin Laden last spring cast fresh doubt on whether the al Qaida leader was really in the Pakistani compound where he was found.

The History network, in its "Targeting Bin Laden" special that airs next Tuesday, said President Obama convened a special "red team" of terrorism experts to give a fresh look at the evidence. That team had greater doubt that bin Laden was in the Abbottobad, Pakistan home primarily because they didn't believe he would take the risk of having as many visitors as he did.

Despite the new assessment, Obama ordered a go-ahead and the raid was carried out three days later.



Obama is interviewed in the two-hour documentary.
