Rhea and Bin Laden Documents

These very two different documents provide readers with different concepts of historical research.

The Colonel Rhea documents came from a collection of papers discussing this one man’s experiences. Many of the documents were from his own perspective, and detailed his life through numerous countries. They give the reader a perfect sense of what this one man did, but are somewhat thrown together in an assemblage that is difficult to ascertain a rhyme or reason.

The news article “Getting Bin Laden” however was very informative and an enjoyment to read at the same time. Throughout the article the journalist presented a picture of the operations that went into killing the 21st-Century’s most-wanted man. With quotes ranging the entire army chain of command, the journalist allo3wed their reader to fully imagine the mission. It was easier to read than the Rhea documents, and more enjoyable.
