Osama bin Laden 'was dead in 90 seconds'
A controversial new account of the killing of Osama bin Laden has challenged the official story of the how the al-Qaeda leader died during the raid on his Pakistani hideout in May.

Chuck Pfarrer, a former commander of US Navy SEAL Team Six, whose members carried out the assault, claims bin Laden was shot dead almost instantly rather than killed in a 45-minute firefight.
Claiming to have interviewed several men involved in the raid, Pfarrer also contradicted the official account of how the SEAL team landed and how one of their Black Hawk helicopters crashed.
"The SEALs entered the building after being deposited on the roof by the lead helicopter, not from the ground," Pfarrer said in a statement about the book.
"Only minutes after bin Laden was dead did the lead helicopter, heading for a landing spot, lose altitude and sink, tail-first, into the large walled enclosure east of the main house." Pfarrer explains that if the SEALs had been forced to climb stairs to reach bin Laden, as has been officially claimed, he would have had enough warning to arm and effectively defend himself.
"Bin Laden was dead within 90 seconds of the beginning of the raid, not after an extended firefight," Pfrarrer said. "Four suppressed rounds were fired".

I’m much more inclined to believe this version than that of the Obummer white house.
With all the money Bin Laden had, I was surprised he didnt have some labyrinthine tunnel under the complex. Good guys storm the complex, he drops down a tube under the complex, crawls away to adjacent house, gets away in true 007-villain fashion.
I know these are secret operations. Maybe there’s some sort of classified issue with this account over the other?
Frankly, the only thing I care about in all this is this, HE’S DEAD. That is all I care about. I don’t care if it took 15 minutes or 15 seconds. The scum of Izzlum is DEAD!
He was dead in three seconds in 2004.
I don’t believe that members of “Seal Team Six” would be telling anyone anything.
Remember that picture of the zero sitting in the corner like an unhappy little punk?
My theory is that a few minutes before that picture was taken he was on his direct hotline to Bin Laden telling him to get out, that the Seals were on the way in to get him (SEAL’s having made the decision to go in on their own authority).
A few weeks later, the helicopter the SEALs were on goes down killing all aboard. Zero’s revenge was to take the entire SEAL team out.
>> I dont believe that members of Seal Team Six would be telling anyone anything.
Those who know, don’t talk; those who talk, don’t know.
He was dead in Dec 2001.
What pi**** me was that they killed the messenger. We probably promised him a million bucks.
And I'm even more pi**** that our soldiers had to participate at a muslim funeral. And you think Obama isn't a muslim??
We know he’s dead because he just registered to vote in chicago.
True SEALS and SPECOPS types don't talk about their missions other than to the official J-2/G-2 Debriefer. Anyone else gets told NOTHING! True SEALS SPECOP personnel don't brag or tell tales.
Xacly. No corraborated video,voice,pictures for years. Makes no sense. Just sayin.
And replaced in 60 seconds or less. This isnt the same as overthrowing Hitler or Tojo, this is isnt about an ideology that lives and dies with any living indiviual(s).
Especially the ones that have been murdered.
Exactly. Moreover, there is no evidence whatsoever that they actually killed Bin Laden. All we know is there is a claim something was quickly buried at sea.
There is no doubt a Seal 6 after action report (AAR) exists somewhere. The truth is in that report. But you can bet your bottom dollar it has been highly classified and the politicians were in charge of any info released. That’s the way it works.
Would a bathosub worked?
That’s as good or better than any of the “official” versions, and much more believable.
Hussein has the confidence that his precious Big Media will cover for him for ANYTHING.
Believe NOTHING the Fraud says, and especially nothing from those here who find it easy to believe and defend SOME of what Hussein or the Associated Press says.
They’re the scariest.
Just “innocent hikers in Iran,” some here tried to tell me. “I’m not ready to call the media liars on this,” they assured me.
My sentiments exactly.
(Oh . . . hey Retired Greyhound you ole' coot :).)
-OR- Osama was killed years ago in Tora Bora..
AND what they killed was a look alike.. used for recruitment..
in which getting that body out of there and burying it at sea would have been a good idea...
Meaning the whole thing was a ruse for the rubes..
You know...... “propaganda”.. for Negrodamus..
No matter whose account you read, the striking thing is that they always emphasize “intelligence obtained by interrogation” as the basis for tracking OBL to the Paki compound. That’s Bush, and his policies.
How much intelligence have we obtained by interrogation since BO took over? A lot less, I suspect, since the worse thing that could happen in the Obama/Holder universe would be another terrorist rotting in Gitmo.
And still Obama gets all the credit.
Trump's fault, for pressing Obaama to change the subject from the birth certificate, and forcing Obaama to play his ace too soon, yes. :-)
I was trying to beat you to it. I know it’s Perry’s fault somehow.
Is it too late to ask you to write in Palin? /Freudian slip>
In a heartbeat!
Yep. George W blew him to hell at Tora Bora.
But then he suppressed the news.
“He was dead in Dec 2001”
Yes, more than likely they had to thaw Osama out for a few hours before they double tapped him then dumped him at sea.
yep, I’m just just a crusty old geezer in my twilight years.
“Get off my lawn.”
Hope you are well.
Damn, and some of us were hoping for at least 2 full minutes of suffering from this maggot...
the lefties in the WH wouldnt want to have the world find out that osama was actually killed on Bush’s watch, would they?
Plus osama being dead for 10 years would make barry’s gameboy war (cia-predators) against Pakistan look pretty lame
