Jawbreaker: The attack on bin Laden and al-Qaeda: A personal account by the CIA's key field commander is an autobiographical book by Gary Berntsen describing the time he spent in Afghanistan at the beginning of the American campaign against the Taliban, al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden after the September 11, 2001 attacks.

In his acknowledgements, Berntsen describes that his original manuscript was reviewed by the CIA as per agency guidelines that stipulate all publishable works detailing an agent's career must be reviewed by the CIA's Publications Review Board (PRB). The text of the book contains redactions to indicate where material has been censored to protect information and context the CIA deems classified.

In October 2006, Paramount Pictures announced that Oliver Stone would direct a film based on Berntsen's book, the rights to which had been bought earlier in the year. This would follow Stone's 2006 film, World Trade Center, the September 11th attacks.
