Green matchbook depicting Osama bin Laden on the front with printed text: "YOU DELIVER | Usama bin Laden | WE PAY | REWARD." On the back are two smaller photographs of other suspects, Ayman al-Zawahiri and Saif al-Adel with printed text "YOU DELIVER - WE PAY!"
One way American counterterrorism agents sought information about bin Laden’s whereabouts was through the regional distribution of matchbooks featuring his picture and offering a reward for information.
