FILE - This undated file photo shows al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. A new book due out Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012 says President Barack Obama hoped to put Bin Laden on trial if he had surrendered during a U.S. raid. Author Mark Bowden quotes the president as saying he thought he could make a strong political argument for giving bin Laden the full rights of a criminal defendant, to show U.S. justice applies even to him. In "The Finish," Bowden writes, however, that Obama said he expected the terror leader to go down fighting. (AP Photo)
