(Studio: Anderson Cooper) A story by journalist Seymour Hersh in "The London Review of Books" that the official account of the death of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden% is a lie: that it was a staged raid examined. [President OBAMA - announces that bin Laden has been killed.] [Earlier, in interview, HERSH - says the raid was authorized but the essential report is hogwash because we had a deal with Pakistan to explain bin Laden's death; says all the documents were purged.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Peter Bergen about Hersh's article; inset animated diagram of the raid shown. [BERGEN - says the firefight at the compound is true with there being evidence of the raid; discounts Hersh's report.]

Cooper, Anderson
