Maya is a CIA operative whose first experience is in the interrogation of prisoners following the Al Qaeda attacks against the U.S. on the 11th September 2001. She is a reluctant participant in extreme duress applied to the detainees, but believes that the truth may only be obtained through such tactics. For several years, she is single-minded in her pursuit of leads to uncover the whereabouts of Al Qaeda's leader, Osama Bin Laden. Finally, in 2011, it appears that her work will pay off, and a U.S. Navy SEAL team is sent to kill or capture Bin Laden. But only Maya is confident Bin Laden is where she says he is. Written by

After seeing the OBL movie that National Geographic hyped (and was extremely poor) I had hoped this would be better. I was wrong. Yes, more money was spent on this movie, with better actors, director, script (?), editing, etc.; however, the movie is nowhere near as factual as claimed. Wrong equipment, adding characters, fattening the story with trivial embellishment, creating situations that never happened, changing the story to what they want it to be, just ruined this movie. OBL was taken to a carrier in the Arabian Sea, proved to be OBL, then he was buried in the Arabian Sea. Afghanistan did not enter into it! There is so much fiction in this movie, I feel I had been cheated paying to see it. This movie stinks just as badly as the NATGEO version.
