Photo: Dead Man at bin Laden Compound Had ... WATER GUN???
The Jawa Report ^ | 5/5/2011 | Rusty Shackleford

Posted on 05/05/2011 1:53:53 PM PDT by XHogPilot

Photos showing three dead bodies at Osama bin Laden's compound were sold to Reuters by a Pakistani security official. Reuters has copyrighted the pictures so won't allow us to publish them, however they are claiming that the photos do not show weapons.

A high quality version of the full photos can be seen here.

The photos are very close up to the bodies, so one wouldn't expect to see any weapons. You mostly see a close up of the upper half of the men's bodies, not much around them or even their lower half.

However, one of the dead men seems to be laying on a toy water pistol.

Unless I miss my mark, I'm pretty sure that's what this zoomed crop of the original shows. It's the standard green gun, with what looks like an orange sighting. Similar water guns are sold at any 99 cents store.

I did a Google image search of "water gun" and nearly all of them were green with many of them having orange trim. And a Google search adding Pakistan to the equation suggests many of these toys are in fact made in Pakistan.

Maybe he reached for the water gun?

Just like a jihadi, bringing a water pistol to an assault rifle fight!

As a bonus, the same picture shows a number of computer cable wires which have been disconnected. Visual evidence that we now have bin Laden's computer in our custody.

This looks legit. These are the same photos posted at Reuters (gruesome link) but these are cropped. The latest version of events is only one terrorist, the courier, used a firearm in the house. I wonder if this is it? The corpse seems to be the courier or his brother. Assuming the house electricity was cut and SpecOps were using NVGs, it would be impossible to distinguish a toy from real.

They probably used them as a fun way to keep cool. It’s pretty hot there.

After all, terrorists are people too!

I heard they had a whole tribe of Jivaro Indians with blowguns and a cave troll.

It is a child’s toy. There were children at the compound. Good grief, there’s plenty to concern us about the alleged takedown of OBL. We don’t need to go into silly stuff like this. Use your heads people.

I would note a few things here.

1) a photo with a dead guy laying next to a toy gun proves that a dead guy is laying next to a toy gun...period!

2) if an unfortunate guy pulls a toy gun on a Navy Seal at night under night vision goggles, it will look like a real gun

did the dead have all shots to the back of their head minus OBL who supposedly got shot in the side of the face?

Just curious as I am why half the paki army living next door did nothing.

The I am B/S award goes to the respectful ceremony which obama ordered our military to give him WTF was that about?

Why did we not take one of his wives for info?

Obama does his victory lap, puts his back on a family member because she asked a good question which the media will not and he did not like.

The media YET AGAIN COVERING FOR THEIR MESSIAH..

So obama has problem wht how the info was got and thus the CIA members are waiting charges but he has no problem ordering a kill but only if he can give a respectful service and I have to wonder would he do that for Hitler and Stalin too.

That question goes to the loons which fall for the white house talking points and say ‘we’re better than them”

That’s only because his Mickey Mouse hat had fallen off.

And the thumb drive showed “Hi Mom” photos of him visiting Disneyland / Disneyworld / or whatever other park...

The photo did not pan wide enough to show it.

It could possibly be a child’s water gun.

Several stories have suggested that there were children in the house. A young neighbor boy said that he went over there several times to play, and they gave him two pet rabbits to take home. His story seems to be confirmed by a photo of him with two rabbits in the British newspapers.

I don’t fault sending in the Seals to kill bin Ladin. But I do fault all this constant hemming, hawing, and changing the story. Why pretend that there was a firefight, if there was not? Why pretend that they were armed, if they were not? The more of this lying Obama indulges in, the worse he makes himself look.

The problem is that he wants credit for killing bin Ladin, after Bush failed to find him. Yet he also wants credit for being a peacenik. Well, as he seems to be discovering, he can’t have it both ways.

The white “square” is quite likely a cell phone battery.

Actually... that looks like a cell phone battery, not a condom. I could be wrong though.

Luckily, this was a kill op against enemies of the United States, not a police raid.

In the famous words of Judge Roy Bean, after blowing a basketball sized hole through Bad Bob’s back, “Boys, he didn’t deserve a chance.”

Any cop in NYC will tell you the Boyz in the Hood paint Tec-9s orange to make them look like water pistols. Shoot first ask questions later.

So they start the young ones out with rabbits. Had he been older they would have given him a goat, I assume.

DoD and a WH never has a straight story in War. Ask Pfc. Lynch or Pat Tillman's parents. The truth never emerges at first.

We will never know the whole story. But, the photos are curious.

I have a hard time believing those guys where shot and searched there. I see no boot imprints from blood on the ground.

Any person walking around that area would have picked up blood from the bodies and from searching the compound.

Curious.

I am with you, Pat Tillman was shot three times in the face by plainclothes soldiers on our side(aka Delta or other SpecOps). So "Friendly fire" is technically correct but it was no accident. It's no secret he was due to come back home and he was not happy, much like the cluster f*ck that was Vietnam 1968, Afghanistan was\is a confusing morass of non specific goals and sometimes conflicting orders and Pat Tillman was very disillusioned.

You know, I don’t care if OBL was buck naked and standing there with his hands behind his head and yelling in clear plain English “I SURRENDER”.

He got what was coming to him! End of story!

He falls on some kids toy and the story is fabricated that he was armed with a water gun.

If you would take time to read, and understand, what is printed about the photos, you would notice that the first photo was taken an hour after the firefight took place. More than enough time to remove any evidence of the gunfight, weapons, etc. and plant your stories with the locals.

One soul in the neighborhood is reported to have heard the helicopters go in, the subsequent firefight in the compound, and the departure without knowing what it was about as he twittered about it to his friends. Remember, those folk overseas DO NOT LIKE THE US.

The BRITISH government considers having a TOY gun as virtually meriting the death penalty.

MORE than reason enough to shoot and kill Osama.

Being of the same mentality as the left-wing control-freak Brit Socialists, I bet the Nanny-state order Obama gave was if Osama was caught with even a TOY gun, or was found to be RUNNING with SCISSORS in hand, he was to be summarily shot and killed.

Of course, these are the rules which they would foist on ALL of us if they could get away with it.

You can tell folks writing these articles about toy guns aren't used to having young kids around the house. Anyone having kids who is not a anti-gun loon knows their kids toys including guns can show up anywhere..
