Author Steve Coll on the Al Qaeda leader's final years, from his access to media to his decision to surround himself with family. "He clearly was reading books. He had access to English-language media," says Coll. "It seemed reasonable to guess that one way or another he would have found a way to preserve a marriage or a married life, a family life."
