Chasing bin Laden: My Hunt for the World's Most Notorious Terrorist Kindle Edition
A secret truth:
On the early morning of August 16, 2006, Osama bin Laden was arrested in Brooklyn by the New York FBI Terrorism Task Force.
They were acting on a tip called in by Barbara Janik.
Janik tells her story:
Chasing bin Laden takes readers along with Janik on an emotional journey through the hidden world of lay investigations, which is charged with high-stakes puzzle solving, Arabic message boards, and anxiety-provoking collaborations with the FBI.
A Pulitzer prize-winning journalist backs her up!
In The Killing of Osama bin Laden, Seymour Hersh states that “bin Laden was a prisoner of the ISI [Pakistani intelligence] at the Abbottabad compound since 2006…”
What does this mean?
Janik’s memoir tells the story of how, when, and where Osama bin Laden was arrested. He was likely transferred in 2006 from the United States to the compound in Pakistan, where he remained in custody until the 2011 raid.
But how does Janik know this stuff?
Janik, who is a historian, computer expert, and former adjunct professor, is a master at research and “Google-fu”. She worked with the FBI. The truth of the arrest was revealed to her by the FBI through a series of cloak-and-dagger phone conversations.
Yet, can she prove she isn’t making this up?
On her website, Janik has uploaded phone records and emails showing the times and content of her conversations with the FBI. There is also a PDF of message board conversations from early 2007.
She’s been telling the same story since 2006.

5-Star Reader's Favorite: Jamie Michel
"It is undeniable that Chasing bin Laden is a fascinating book. Janik has a real talent as a writer and the book is written to such a high standard..."
Midwest Book Review: Diane Donovan
"This book didn't just ask to see the light of day. It demanded it. It provides a compelling, riveting story that will encourage others to stay the course in following their research and convictions to fruition, even if the rest of the world can't listen, doesn't know, or has a vested interest in burying that information."--This text refers to the paperback edition.

Thank you to Ms. Janik for sharing her joys as well as low points that come with completely immersing oneself in a project. I look forward to reading more of her work.
The author does indeed "chase" Bin Laden and does so in an interesting way. That story and it's outcome are detailed and eye-opening but (for me) the rest of the book that dives into her personal and familial life is wonderfully told.
That and the combination of the "arrest" of Bin Laden makes for a completely interesting and thoughtful read.
I very much liked it all.
