Jen is waiting for me in the plush Belvedere restaurant, at the Peninsula Beverley Hills.

Jen is the real life Carrie Mathison, the CIA agent in the TV drama Homeland.

Jen spent 5 years tracking bin Laden.

She looks like a real feisty female.


We order two Maine Lobster Salads, with sweet corn and jicama, tarragon, radicchio and frisee and lime marinated chioggia beets.

I ask Jen how one begins looking for a man like Osama.

"Well," she says, "The bin Ladens were investors in Arbusto, the Texas oil company started by George W. Bush. But I could hardly ask George Bush how much he knows about the family." 

She takes a sip of Chateau Lafite and continues: "On the morning of September 11, 2001, George W. Bush's father, George H. W. Bush, was meeting with Osama bin Laden's brother, Shafig bin Laden, in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Washington, on Carlyle Group business." 

I asked if she had approached Shafig.

She shakes her head.

Salem bin Laden

"The bin Laden family have been helpful to the CIA, in the past," Jen explains. "During the 1980's, Salem bin Laden helped the Reagan Administration when it secretly arranged for an estimated thirty-four million dollars to be funnelled through Saudi Arabia to the Contras, in Nicaragua. 

"Salem had a house in Florida, but he's dead now. Plane accident." 

I point out that a number of people met Osama in an American hospital in July 2001. 

One of these people was the local CIA station chief Larry Mitchell.

Jen takes a last bite of Lobster and chews it thoroughly.

She says: "I could have spoken to Prince Turki al-Faisal, who was also at the American hospital. But he was not available, and neither was Larry Mitchell."

We see the arrival of our Grilled Prime Filet Mignon, yukon potato puree, bloomsdale spinach, cipollini onions, asparagus and cabernet jus. 

"I was quite a lowly CIA officer," explains Jen. "It's only fairly recently that I was recruited out of college. I'm only in my twenties."

So, how did she find Osama?

"I can give you some clues," she says, as she cuts into her steak.

"In the TV drama Homeland, Carrie was warned by an asset that an American was working for Al-Qaeda.

"That's the way it works. 

"Imagine if Osama was working for the CIA. Imagine if Al-Qaeda is run by the CIA. 

"Imagine if I have never actually been to Pakistan."

I asked her explain further.

But Jen's minder appeared and explained that Jen had an urgent appointment.

It was like the ending to Wag The Dog.

"The CIA's Larry Mitchell met Osama in an American hospital in 2001"
