President Barack Obama: President Obama is the major character in the book. Bowden interviewed him and quotes him a great deal. Obama appears first as an Illinois politician living in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago, because the book starts with snapshots of several important characters as they experienced September 11, 2001. His actions, his decision-making style, and his decisions as President are one of the book's two central threads, the other being the conceptual and bureaucratic apparatus that found Bin Laden.
