Pakistans government, facing an anti-American backlash in the wake of the unilateral United States action, at first seemed unwilling to make the women available to the United States, despite the two countries partnership in fighting terror. But Islamabad later relented.
Marine Col. Dave Lapan, a Defense Department spokesman, said that we have had access to the widows. But he declined to give details, such as where, when and under what circumstances the women were questioned.
He also would not specify whether the United States officials who spoke to the women were members of the military or worked for the CIA.
CNN reported that the three wives were questioned simultaneously and in the presence of Pakistani officials, and were hostile toward their American interrogators.

They should have let a female agent, who speaks the language, and wears a head scarf talk with them. It might actually gotten them some information.
Meanwhile here is some information about what was recorded on head cameras worn by the Seals.
“It seems that the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound was, in fact, captured on the helmet cameras of the Navy SEAL team that took down the terrorist leader. According to CBS’ David Martin, the entire 40-minute raid was recorded on the 25 tiny helmet cams of the SEAL Team that went in. They appear to have the whole mission covered from every angle.
From CBS News:
The SEALs first saw bin Laden when he came out on the third floor landing. They fired, but missed. He retreated to his bedroom, and the first SEAL through the door grabbed bin Laden’s daughters and pulled them aside. When the second SEAL entered, bin Laden’s wife rushed forward at him — or perhaps was pushed by bin Laden. The SEAL shoved her aside and shot bin Laden in the chest. A third seal shot him in the head.”
Apparently the wife was also shot in the calf at some point.
The videos are still being scrutinized by White house security chiefs as they continue to try and assemble a more accurate depiction of what happened, according to the Daily Mail. The footage also apparently documents the moments after bin Laden was killed, as the team gathered intelligence.
Despite the video, there do not seem to be many pictures. “There were probably about maybe four, five or six photos,” Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-Md, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, who went to the CIA headquarters to view the photos, told CBS. “There are just a couple body shots. He was like, in a white undershirt and a tan robe.”
The White House has maintained that it does not intended to release any of the photos or videos, but their existence has stirred much controversy. While the helmet cam footage will go a long way in helping to better analyze the events that transpired during the raid in Abottabad, it seems unlikely that it will ever be seen by the public.
