Skip to comments.Bin Laden killed: How it happened (Time to bomb Pakistan for harboring Al-Qaeda)
Posted on 05/02/2011 3:36:22 AM PDT by tobyhill
Details are emerging of how al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was found and killed at a fortified compound on the outskirts of Abbottabad in north-west Pakistan.
The compound is just "a stone's throw" and less than 200 yards from the Pakistan Military Academy, an elite military training centre, which is Pakistan's equivalent to Britain's Sandhurst, one local journalist from Abbottabad told the BBC.
Other reports have put the distance at 800 yards.
But the compound lies well within Abbottabad's military cantonment - it is likely the area would have had a constant and significant military presence and checkpoints.
The operation began at about 2230 (1730 GMT) and lasted about 45 minutes, military sources told BBC Urdu. Two or three helicopters were seen flying low over the area. Witnesses say it caused panic among local residents.
Barbed wire and cameras
The target of the operation was the compound, which had at its centre a large three-storey building.

Pakistan has a lot of explaining to do (and it wont help them). A link to the map below:
The word “Outrageous” doesn’t begin to cover it.
Let’s hope they never identify the individual who actually delivered the candygram.
The Paks are no friends of ours.
The w0n takes credit in 3..2..1..
Who cares about a ten year old candygram... Obama loves himself now.
The Pakistani Military and ISI knew exactly where he was for 10 years now so while this is good news that he’s dead, Pakistan must pay a price.
Our friends in “Pokeston” ...
Oddly enough, we’ve had reports of Pakistan harboring bin Laden for years. Years. The timing of his capture and death couldn’t be better for Zero if you’d scripted it in Hollywood. With his polls numbers bottoming out and his domestic/economic policies widely hated...’how’s hope and change working out for you?’...Zero needed something, and this breathes life in his reelection campaign. But Bin Laden’s followers will rally and commit acts of mass murder, and gas prices won’t fall until we drill for our own oil. Call me cynical, but I think Zero wouldn’t have done anything had his poll numbers looked better. That said, Bravo and well done, Navy seals and everyone who took part in this!
Exactly why I think this is a “Madame Tussaud” event.
One more thing...Zero actually used the words: One Nation Under God...and God Bless the United States of America. He even hinted that we’re an exceptional nation. Nah, I must have been dreaming.
Why buried at sea before we had a chance to cut his body up?
Why is Obama so sensitive to Osama’s religion?
Who harbored him?
Makes perfect sense as a hide-out in plain view. Also makes sernse that every bloody Paki from corporal on up knew where the guy was all along.
Bingo! I hope a Navy seal slid a ham sandwich in bin Laden’s mouth before they rolled him up in that white sheet and dumped him overboard.
OH, mabye not.
If Obaama is so desperate for re-election that he threw Al-Qaeda under the bus, they're going to come back for vengeance in a big way. Muslim sleeper cells, anyone?
(Which *might* lead to chaos and a call for suspension of US elections, btw.)
NO cheers, unfortunately.
A quick burial at sea prevents them from setting up a martyr’s site, plus it was private. Muslims can’t prove we put bacon to good use, but I sure hope we did. As for Zero, that speech was typical self aggrandizement. I, I, I...you’d have thought he carried out the raid all by himself.
Bin Laden was not a Muslim leader. He was a mass murderer of Muslims, Obama said.
Obama more concerned about his fellow Muslims that Bin Laden killed than all our fellow Americans that were killed. And Obama made sure Bin Laden received a proper Muslim burial. Obama is a POS.
"The guy is an @sshole, do you think we want him down here?!?"
