Navy SEAL Helmet Cams: Obama Watched bin Laden Raid Video

Navy SEAL Helmet Cams: Obama Watched bin Laden Raid Video Ian Yarett Fri May 6, 10:20 pm ET

NEW YORK – Navy SEAL Helmet Cams: Obama Watched bin Laden Raid VideoObama and officials in the White House Situation Room were able to watch the raid against bin Laden live, the Washington Post confirms. Ian Yarett on how helmet-cam combat video works. Plus, full coverage of bin Laden.

It was a picture that caught everyone’s attention. Sitting in the White House situation room, President Obama and his team appear to be breathlessly monitoring the raid that located and killed Osama bin Laden. But the image left many wondering: was the president actually seeing the operation unfold in real-time on the screen in front of him?

In a White House briefing on Monday, counterterrorism chief John Brennan said that he and the rest of Obama’s team were “able to monitor the situation in real time” and were given “regular updates” as the operation proceeded, but wouldn’t say whether there was a live video feed. Even though the government won’t confirm that the SEALs were wearing cameras, a military spokesman tells The Daily Beast that video is a routine part of many combat missions.

They watched before they didn’t watch and Obama gave the okay after he didn’t give the okay or something like that.

They watched it. They didn’t watch it. There was a 25 minute delay. No one knew what was going on. They got regular updates. Panetta drank a Coke. It was a Pepsi.Obama wore night vision googles. Osama had a cracker....

UN demands raw videos to see if US Navy Seals killed Bin Laden in cold blood, without giving him the required few minutes to grab his AK or suicide vest.

Changing the story again.

That photo certainly looks as if they are watching something of interest.

I think these guys run a poll every five minutes, and then change what they say according to how the poll comes out.

Probably Obama’s peacenik base were disturbed by the thought of sitting and watching Obama being killed on a TV screen. So they changed the story. Then they did another poll, and found problems with a bunch of people sitting there staring at nothing. So they changed the story again.

Stay tuned for the next poll.

Not a 25 minute delay. According to Leon Panetta of the CIA, it was a 25 minute blackout of a 40 minute operation.

Personally, I think the blackout is just a bunch of CYA rhetoric so that they have an excuse for the myriad inconsistencies in their stories.

Cheers

I'm surprised the Bin Laden did not have the entire house wired to blow. Bet the SEALs are surprised too.

The fact that it was not tells me Bin Laden figured if he was found he would be taken alive and that that would be his preference.

This is hilarious..! The military side of all this went GREAT, save for the copter. But ANY aspect of this touched for an instant by politicians has gone to $hit in two winks.

DOES ANYONE REALLY WONDER WHY THE VIDEO WENT DOWN....?

That kind of tech is a two-edged sword; politicians and generals LOVE IT cuz they’re “right there” —but the warriors often hate it, well, cuz the politicans are RIGHT THERE.

It means people who aren’t getting ALL of the data are in a position to issue stupid orders.

DOES ANYONE REALLLLLLY WONDER WHY “THE VIDEO WENT DOWN”...?

Cuz you’re looking at the reason.

If all the SEALS had cameras on their helmets, then there had to be someone editing the live feed, so who knows what helmet camera they were watching when OBL got it.

I have a helmet cam for motorcycling. It’s great- I haven’t sorted out a wind-noise issue yet, though.

I also have to remember to turn it off when I step into a gas station rest room. :-)

I thought the feed was down for 35 minutes and they didn't actually see the take-down.

This whole 72-versions thing has to be on purpose. There is some sort of disinformation campaign going on. Even Obama can't be this incompetent.

No blackout means they saw who killed OBL, how and other stuff. Better say blackout, even though everyone knows it’s a lie.

It's feasable that our community organizer in chief wanted a "capture live" mission, and the folks on the other end knew better.

That would explain the loss of signal if there REALLY was one, and maybe account for all the different versions we are now hearing.

It's way more believable that our military is 100% responsable for giving us the happy ending than crediting that bunch of rat pussies in Washington for ANY of this.

When have they EVER done anything right or even slightly patriotic? Just a few weeks ago the rat bastards were willing let the military go unpaid.

25 minute blackout? what version is this?

It's the version from Wednesday

Leon Panetta, director of the CIA, revealed there was a 25 minute blackout during which the live feed from cameras mounted on the helmets of the US special forces was cut off.

From at least a half dozen sources I have read that there was approximately a 30 minute blackout, so NO, the did not watch the raid unfold LIVE.

Sorry, but I am hoising a large BS flag on this one.
