US: Only single bin Laden defender shot at SEALs
Associated Press ^ | May 5, 2011 | ROBERT BURNS and PAULINE JELINEK

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.

I wonder where the birth certificate is?
I wonder what’s being done about our high fuel costs?
The price of food?
Our economy?

Just wondering...

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.

a senior defense official said

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.
