Skip to comments.US: Only single bin Laden defender shot at SEALs
Posted on 05/05/2011 8:07:42 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Americans who raided Osama bin Laden's lair met far less resistance than the Obama administration described in the aftermath. The commandos encountered gunshots from only one man, whom they quickly killed, before sweeping the house and shooting others, who were unarmed, a senior defense official said in the latest account.
In Thursday's revised telling, the Navy SEALs mounted a precision, floor-by-floor operation to find the al-Qaida leader and his protectors - but without the prolonged and intense firefight that officials had described for several days.

How many revisions is this now?
The half-life on any revision is only 6 hours.
BULLIES!!!!!!! /s (just n case)
Which one carried the squirt gun?
Obama is an idiot.
I wonder where the birth certificate is?
I wonder what’s being done about our high fuel costs?
The price of food?
Even the AP is having problem following all these revisions while still carrying the water for BHO.
What a frickin’ surprise, the Bozo administration lied again.
WHo gives a F Bomb S—t.
This is the OsamaKill version 28.3
Who’s on frist?
“first” not frist! LOL!
Either way(s) you dissect this, IMHO, this was a cluster F.
Obama, penesta, all of them sitting there only thinking about 2012. Not justice. Not revenge. Not anything but 2012.
F them all.
I'm not going to believe another word from this administration until they have a public debriefing by the a fully identified officer of the Military.
The fact that they keep coming up with new stories tells me two things: 1) the intention of the SEALs was to secretly kidnap Osama and 2) Osama's own guards fired the fatal shots and then killed themselves.
I'm am glad he's dead. I only wish the military had given a debriefing rather than having the Obama spin machine go to town before the blood was coagulated.
They are now painting the picture that our SEAL team is nothing but a bunch of cold blooded killers. They can't defend themselves and this administration is poised to throw them to the wolves.
and so it begins - hit piece on our heroes.
damn them all - traitors all
Please, God, save our country from the evil running rampant...
Said it before...I hope they keep this up. They are alienating even their own base. Better for America that they are so arrogantly incompetent.
I understand that many think us birther types are nuts...so be it... but even the hardest of the hardcore anti-conspiratorialist has to be asking what the hell is going on by now with this administration.
NOTHING they say is the truth. NOTHING.
Haven’t there been photos of at least 3 dead guys laying in pools of blood? Did these guys kill themselves?
Now we know how Paul Revere felt that night ...
“British? What British? Go back to the pub you crazy basT#$!”
The Operators of this mission should go no where near Obama. Everything he touches turns to crapola!
Now, in this ‘version #28’, they have the SEAL team running room to room killing unarmed civilians.
You are correct. They are intentionally setting up the SEAL team. When things were good, Obama couldn't take enough credit. He couldn't say "I did it." "I am responsible." enough times.
Now that things are going South, He didn't know anything about it.
I believe we are up to version 1,236 mod 1.
There is so much bullshit coming out of this joke of an administration over this bin Laden that we cannot possibly believe any of it. The Great Deceiver spin machine is working overtime.
As we used to say in the Army, Obama’s so full of shit, his eyes are brown.
I remember reading an article in the foreign MSM about a young Muslim girl who shot herself in the back of the head - 3 times - with her father’s AK47.
And they reported that with a straight face/words too.
Wasn’t an honor killing...it was an accident!
Those 3 dead guys will be spun similarly, no doubt, once they remember the pix exist.
Pros behind Hussein Al Amriki know rules of the trade -one must mix semitruths with bold faced lie.
The problem is they are getting sloppy. And this is dangerous.
“They are now painting the picture that our SEAL team is nothing but a bunch of cold blooded killers. They can’t defend themselves and this administration is poised to throw them to the wolves.”
And that will be their undoing, bank on it. America, as f’d up as it is right now, will never let that happen.
Remember, it’s always darkest before the dawn. Yes, they are dangerous. But they are picking a fight they will never win. America is not above a total military coup. Too many good men there to let all these men go under the bus.
How can u question it?????
Bad news is that PLAAF Receive & Duplicate labs got the gift.
Politicians are always in such a hurry to spin a story, even when it doesn't need it. They can't help themselves.
Personally, I think Obama should have made a short, even curt statement from the WH press room. In it, he should have said a raid was conducted and bin Laden didn't survive. Then, he should have said that neither he, nor anyone in his administration would be making any further comments on it and operational details of any kind wouldn't be disclosed - not who did it, not how many were there, not what information was retrieved, not what resistance was encountered - NOTHING.
Of course, when we have a president who loves the sound of his own voice, and surrounds himself with similar characters, this is what you might expect would happen.
Their bucket has a hole in it. Just saying...........
I read a trait description of (I think it's called) destructive narcissism (it was actually an article on Charlie Sheen), and Obama fit all five categories EXACTLY,
That will invite more outrage among all would-be jihadists than any photo in a newspaper.
It was a totally unnecessary and irresponsible thing to do, - even if in fact it was the truth.
I guess they did it because Zer0 didn't get the kind of bounce in the polls that they were clamoring for.
Absolutely. First off, whatever intel was collected at the site could have been put to good use. Better yet, once you had SEALS on the ground you might as well try to capture Bin Laden and others for secret interrogation - but not tell anyone he had been captured or killed.
Even if the raid itself became public it would be possible to claim Bin Laden wasn't really there, etc. Thus confusing lower level elements of his organization while still sending a very strong message to his inner circle who would find out over time what happened to him from the survivors.
Every country in the world doesn't like the idea of an American hit squad dropping into a sovereign nation and ‘whacking’ someone. Even Castro crapped his pants. Regardless of the reason or justification, this promotes total lawlessness. Like the U.S. is now the Mafia and if we have a beef with you, we'll have you whacked. From Russia to South America, leaders all over the world were beefing up security and looking at America as a rogue nation.
Question: If we can do this to them, why can't they do the same to us? Why can't they drop in a hit squad into the U.S. to take out a dissident who they claim murdered thousands?
The people running this thing were very short sighted. They should have paid me to consult. I could have told them that this was going to have sever global ramifications and was not going to be a walk in the park.
Today, at my direction
I glad used that term. He has outed himself in a very uncharacteristic way, as actually being responsible for something. I know what he did is cheap, petty, and childish (very typical), but by saying it this way he has put himself up as the sole guy for the inevitable, predictable, you could almost say daily, ‘Muslim Rage’. He kinda stuck his neck out there for the backlash (no pun intended).

I Disagree, release EVERYTHING. (short of participants names)
It's not revision, it's "nuance," something we simpletons haven't the capacity to grasp.
Develop a time-line graphic of all the revisions and then watch them spin it.
Re How many revisions is this? Like the weather, wait a few minutes. You’ll get more.
And as for those three guys with all the blood running out of them. They’re just a figment of your computer’s imagination. Ignore them. They don’t exist.
PS: I think Bin Laden’s last words were: “Oh goody, pizza-man’s here”.
