Six answers, and all correct! The connect is Operation Neptune Spear aka Operation Geronimo aka the operation by US Navy Seal Team 6 to seek out and kill Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan. The first photo is that of Geronimo. The second is Sohaib Athar, who unwittingly live-tweeted the entire Navy Seal operation in Abbottabad. The third is the General Abbott after whom Abbottabad is named. and the fourth is a book by one of the participants of the operation about his experience that night.

I had thought of including Zero Dark Thirty or Katherine Bigelow as a clue too, but that would have made it even more obvious.
