Shifting US story (on Bin Laden kill) invites disbelief
The Australian ^ | May 6, 2011 | Greg Sheridan

IT just doesn't add up.

The official American explanation for the operation against Osama bin Laden keeps changing every day. But at every point it requires such a leap of faith into the extraordinarily unlikely that it has a disturbing ring of contrivance about it.

There is no doubt the Americans conducted an operation and killed bin Laden on Monday, but the surrounding detail and overall narrative is difficult to swallow.

The people in charge are not only just human, many of them are REALLY STUPID HUMANS...

Obama and his ilk look down on you and me, they are sure beyond any doubt that they can do anything to us and we'll sit back and take it, no matter what.

In their minds, they are far superior.

I'd say that's probably a legitimate hypothesis. In my humble opinion, the CIA were keeping tabs on Osama to get further intel and see who/what connections popped up on the radar. Law enforcement and the FBI have conducted surveillance/sting operations like this for many, many years. You have to gather intelligence and see who is connected to the “Godfather” and follow those leads.

I don't think we will ever know the real story.

Methinks they are worried the liberal electorate about getting really really heartless and blowing the heads off enemies that want us dead and kill our countrymen.

All right, I am sorry, but professors grill you on a collegiate paper for inconsistency in your story, and these guys are supposedly already graduated, I feel sick from how bad this job of postgame reporting has gone by. If I had to give a report in college, and did it like they did, I would have failed on that paper. Yet these guys, who have graduated, are giving such horrible material on a so-called success! What is our nation coming to?

And more inconsistency is revealed every minute.

Just watched O’Reilly, with people claiming info from primary sources say that there were some over 20 people in Obama’s compound and some over 10 in his room, weapons, inc AK-47 near by in Bin Laden’s room and nobody is shooting at the SEALS. Also MANY women and children.

Earlier they said there were only a total of 4 people and only ONE shooting at the SEALS.

So how come there was a 20 min fire fight — or maybe not.

What if he ain't dead and we have him blabbering his head off (to coin a phrase)?

Ol' Ayman ala Zorro might be developing a bit of a pucker......

Fun to think it, anyway.

The entire episode provides an object lesson in what an Ivy League education is actually worth.

It can get you a high-level job in the federal government. But it can't help you actually do the job...

Better than that; the Army guy said Obama was dead within the 1st 30 seconds and the woman said UBL was shot half way through the 38 minute operation.

Does anybody think the timing might have been influenced by the change of personnel of DoD and CIA and Theater command to differing command relationships.

Local Fox news just showed video that was purportedly from Sunday, right after those in this photo got word that Osama was dead. Not great quality, but I did see Biden and Pannetta. Yet, in the video, Obama is in suit and tie looking all presidential. Is it a fake? Are the handlers trying to remake his image in this photo?
