Objective Troy

A Conversation with author, Scott Shane

OBJECTIVE TROY tells the story of Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen and radical imam who has had enormous influence on terrorism suspects in the U.S.. He has, perhaps, been more influential than bin Laden himself.

Shane traces the evolution of the Obama administration’s counter-terrorism policy,  from campaigning against the excesses of President Bush's post-9/11 policies to embracing targeted killing, which culminated in the long pursuit and eventual killing of Awlaki.
