UPDATE: Carney Revises Again, Says There Was “Resistance” from bin Laden
http://hotair.com/archives/2011/05/03/the-story-shifts-on-the-abbottabad-raid/ ^

Posted on 05/03/2011 5:38:36 PM PDT by chessplayer

According to The Politico, the White House has a couple revisions to the story it told us yesterday of what happened inside Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad. The most notable change thus far to the story we heard yesterday from Deputy National Security Adviser John Brennan and the Pentagon is that bin Laden didn’t pick up a gun and join the fighting.

Ok, I know they`ve had only over a week to study the video and get their story straight, but good grief.

Bin Laden was bought and paid for several thousand times over.

Man...I’m definitely no conspiracist, but this is nuts. More than ever, we need evidence, because even I’m beginning to wonder if this isn’t all a scam.

It’s like they’re doing this triple-talk on purpose in order to tire and confuse public opinion.

Next it is quite possible we will here Bin Laden grabbed the weapon from a Seal and shot himself.

Obama seems very worried about what he has authorized. This is what happens when you elect a person who has not had enough experience and has never developed any wisdom.

I have checked in with FR throughout the day and read many articles on this topic. I can honestly say I am not sure of any details about what happened in Abbottabad or over the North Arabian Sea.

Except, of course, that Obama is just the most wonderfulest president ever and gets all the credit for all the good stuff that happened that I can’t follow. /s

Someone should point out to him that telling the truth makes it a lot easier to keep the story straight.

Carney: "It wouldn't be inaccurate to assume that I couldn't exactly not say that that isn't partially incorrect. On the contrary, I'm possibly more or less not definitely rejecting the idea that in no way and with any amount of uncertainty that I undeniably do or do not know if he was armed, that indeed if he was even if he wasn't. I hope that clears that up for you, Gentlemen..."

Let's see...the COLB was real, then its not but the BC is real but first it didn't exist and now its probably a forgery but the Health Kare bill will reduce your premiums but now it won't...but....but...Nothing this administration says even approximates the truth. They are LIARS first last and always.

This is hilarious. Under Bush similar operations were handled by the Pentagon brass and their spokesmen who knew enough not to get specific until the full debriefing and mission post-mortems were completed.

They took a slam-dunk and jammed it back in their face.

Ok guys, when the kill team entered the BR, OBL’s wifey rushed them. They shot her in the leg. NOW, why did she rush the heavily armed Seals? To give the pig she was sleeping with time to get his AK-47. These are the same people that televised the beheading of AMERICANS. What do you think would be on TV today if any of our people had been captured. Navy Seals being beheaded by OBL. It’s time for people to get their heads out of their A**es and face the reality of the situation.

I thought the raid happened only two days ago?

Well anyway, this White House bunch makes the Keystone Cops look competent.

Same here. I still believe we got him, but if this crap continues, that will change.

I love conspiracy theories. They are really interesting.

Fortunately this is no conspiracy, at least as far as Bin Laden being dead and his being killed by Seals.

Actually I don’t think there is any conspiracy except Obama might be trying to get whatever gain he can from the events.

Are not these people Democrats and lawyers, and a part of the least competent administration in history? And you expect a straight story? Maybe someone can keep track of the different stories about what happened, and then vote on which one has the most traction.

So let’s see if I have this straight. Under Obama’s policies US forces who encounter a terrorist can put two bullets in his brain but are not allowed to pour water up his nose?

“”Okay, I am confused. When was the raid? Sunday or a week ago?””

According to obozo on Sunday night he said, “last week.” Said they’d been studying and refining the plan since August 2010. I would imagine his actual remarks from Sunday night are in the form of a transcript somewhere.

It is odd that not much is said about the ACTUAL day - I haven’t heard any mention of it on TV or seen anything definitive in the many articles on the subject.

You hit the nail on the head. He’s probably worried what his muzzies are planning for retaliation.

In the spirit of Wes Hardin, they sang `For He’s A Jalalabad Fellow’ and then shot him because he smelled like a goat.

I think one reason they killed him was that he could never come back from that.

If they captured him there is always the chance that some leftist judge or president or even a jail escape would let him go.

Once he is dead that is it, no matter what else happens he is still dead.

The good part about telling the truth is that you only have to remember one story to tell - the true one.

Obviously, you haven’t read the news that both his certification of live birth and the long form certificate of live birth were found on his nightstand after his head exploded (just like a typical libtard). It was documented as being typed on the portable SmithCorona typewriter found at his rolltop desk, right next to his Samsung 55” 3D HDTV.

He didn’t have phone lines or internet but Direct TV gave him a waiver on that. The dish itself was knocked off the side of the roof during the initial part of the raid. Interestingly, the TV channel was on MSNBC.

Another MSM coverup.

Bush’s record for clear statements is pretty poor.

I think the guy meant well, but “putting mind in gear before engaging mouth” was not his strong point.
