Instead, he was in a house eight times larger than its neighbors, with a seven-foot wall and valued at $1 million.

The house had no phone or television and the residents burned their trash. The house had high windows and few points of access, and U.S. officials concluded it had been built to hide someone.

According to U.S. officials, two U.S. helicopters swept into the compound at 1:30 and 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning.

Twenty to 25 U.S. Navy Seals under the command of the Joint Special Operations Command in cooperation with the CIA stormed the compound and engaged Bin Laden and his men in a firefight, killed Bin Laden and all those with him.

This April 1998 file photo shows exiled al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan. A person familiar with developments on Sunday, May 1, 2011 says bin Laden is dead and the U.S. has the body.Two

Bin Laden couriers were killed, as was one of Osama Bin Laden's son, as was a woman reportedly used as a shield by one of the men.

Other women and children were present in the compound, according to Pakistani officials, but were not harmed. U.S. officials said that Bin Laden himself did fire his weapon during the fight.

they almost have to release a photo. They did it with Saddam after capture and after his hanging. If they don’t we will have a whole new conspiracy both here and in the muslim world.

"According to a senior administration official, the U.S. is "ensuring it is handled in accordance with Islamic practice and tradition."

Screw that. I still remember the pictures of the body parts of the contractors hanging from the bridge.

I tend to like how things were done in the past. The Americans took the bodies of certain Nazis and put them in unmarked graves.

During the war, tens of thousands of German soldiers were killed and buried in the East. After the war, Russia had them ALL dug up and placed in vast unmarked graves.

Point being: There is no need to honor a murdering enemy.

Too bad Inglourious Basterds was fiction, "I want my scalps."

It's impossible to know what the truth is anymore.

I'd have to kill the SOB myself to know for sure.

See my link at #3. I’m getting confirmation from several sourced that the photo may be genuine.
