"A thrilling read…Berntsen did his best to try to get bin Laden; many in Washington have yet to do theirs." —Washington Post

“Gripping . . . this honest account doesn’t do the president any favors.” —Frank Rich, New York Times

“The hunt for Osama bin Laden is the story of courageous CIA officers, like Gary Berntsen, repeatedly finding him and U.S. political and military leaders refusing to kill him. Jawbreaker—which CIA leaders tried to suppress to protect America’s bipartisan political elite and its military sycophants—precisely describes the eleventh such opportunity since 1998, and again shows that uniformed bureaucrats masquerading as U.S. generals let bin Laden escape.” —Michael Scheuer, author of Imperial Hubris and Through Our Enemies’ Eyes

Jawbreaker is a real page turner . . . Berntsen was the CIA’s ‘go to guy’ when it came to leading in Afghanistan, owing to his exceptional operational and leadership skills in situations involving the threat of immediate danger. Berntsen is brave and bold and a true American hero.” —Cofer Black, former Chief of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Counterterrorism Center
