SHOOTOUT: Hunt For Bin Laden

You may be forgiven for thinking that the war in Afghanistan is over. However, across the country coalition forces continue to fight as they pursue Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

Fighting a tenacious enemy across searing deserts and frigid mountain peaks requires strong weaponry and sound tactics.

US marine gunnery sergeant William Bodette explains how he fought off three enemy ambushes in one month and lived to tell the tale. Three American national guardsmen describe an operation to rescue two special forces snipers who were pinned down by Al Qaida gunmen.

In this ancient battlefield, famous for punishing the arrogant and swallowing the mighty, coalition forces soldier on. Hear their combat stories on Shootout!: The Hunt for Bin Laden.
