“I think the intel was bad, the SEALS were screwed, and it WILL come out eventually.”

Put down the crack pipe.

20 minute “firefight” with one guy and a gun

and no one from a near by military installation heard a thing for 20 minutes? Sure the Seals might have had quiet guns, but bin Ladin's guys certainly didn't. Laughable...

I read a UK source which said.....

Osama was killed by his own men; so, he would not be taken alive!!
***********************************************************************
2 others that were found dead had gun shots from under chin

which indicate they took own lives...........
***********************************************************************

I do not know the validity; but, they did encounter a fake door & were shot at as they entered the House......Then they had to make their way up to the third floor to find Bin Laden.....
**********************************************************
Sounds very possible that this was the scenario!!

Even if this is true so what? Did these people not know how to put their hands in the air? I can’t believe a team of highly trained Seals would shoot someone who is surrendering.

Shhhhhh... they were supposed to shoot him. If that decision hadn't been made up front, the mission wouldn't have gone off. The Seals wouldn't have gone in if there was any ambiguity about it.

UBL was shot (1st time.. 2nd time) while fighting the other bad guy for the gun? An autopsy and photographs would be nice.

whether they were surrendering or not is irrelevant if the seals had kill orders. That is one example of what very special units like the one that did this are for.

Obama’s focus groups have ruined the narrative of a great job by the SEALS.

The SEALs' job of occupying the building, disarming or neutralizing any armed resistance in the building and holding the building against outside forces was accomplished. What happened to UBL and the others was at the discretion of non-military team members.

The Pakistani's were involved, then they weren't... A Pakistani helecopter crashed, then it didn't... A woman was used as a human shield, then she wasn't... The woman was one of Osama's many wives, then she wasn't... The woman was killed, then she wasn't... Osama was armed to the teeth, then he wasn't.... Osama was going for his gun, then he wasn't.... Women and children killed, then they weren't... Man with a squirt gun shot, then he wasn't.... Osama's "burial" was according to mooslimb tradition, then it wasn't... DUh-bama will release photos, then he won't... No information was gleaned from enhanced interrogation or GITMO, then it was... Osama's son was killed in the raid, then he wasn't...

I don't think so either.

The SEALs captured and secured the compound then the spooks came in and interrogated the remaining residents. Some might have tried to escape.

Here is the result of my intense investigation into this police action. The force was led by Jessica Lynch, the former truck driver, captured and rescued during GW2. She was closely supported by a diverse set of commandos: 2 openly gay, 1 transexual, 1 transgendered, 1 gender confused, 2 Iman wannabes, 2 illegal aliens, 3 white males prominently displaying membership in the white guilt society, and 10 counselors/faith healers. They entered the compound using variety of non lethal restraints and pacification methods. When the unit confronted the Sheik, he was disarmed and ultimately died of laughter and hiccups.

My mind is failing me, I actually had forgotten all about legged resistance, in fact I still can’t remember anything about it. Just what was it Patton said?

With OBL gone, obama is trying his best to make the military look like cold-blooded murderers.

You know, there's this nagging thought I have that Obama is going to milk it as much as he can and then throw the SEALs under the bus with a grim-faced report, "After the initial euphoria of the raid wore off, it became increasingly clear to me that we were being misled in the details of the raid. Based on that, I directed a high-level interagency investigative team that reported directly to me to find out the truth. The results are frankly disturbing and I have taken swift action to punish the wrongdoers. I am also requiring an overhaul of our policies and procedures for these types of operations. I have set deadline of 30 days from now for me to receive the full report and new set of guidelines. I am personally committed to making the necessary changes. I want to assure the world that the United States does not condone and will not tolerate this."

It is so easy to see him doing that.
