Osama bin Laden is dead and you want to know the whole story?

The compound in Abbottabad.
​-- U.S. forces shot bin Laden in the head during a raid at his compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. One of the al Qaeda leader's sons was also killed, as were two other men and a woman being used as a human shield, according to reports.

-- The terrorist mastermind was identified by "facial recognition" and quickly buried at sea

-- Remember when Bush said bin Laden was wanted dead or alive? Well, we really apparently wanted him just dead. The successful mission that brought what might be called instant justice was a "kill operation" all the way, according to Reuters.

-- The New York Times was ready with a quick 5,000-word obituary

More inside, including just-posted video of the inside of the ratty-looking -- and now bloody -- compound where bin Laden was killed. 
Here's video just posted by ABC News of the inside of the compound after the raid: 


The compound was actually owned by one of bin Laden's trusted couriers and the courier's brother. From Time.com

After 9/11 the CIA chased several leads about bin Laden's inner circle, paying particular attention to his couriers. According to the National Journal, one courier's pseudonym was repeatedly mentioned by those detained by the U.S. He was said to be one of bin Laden's most trusted, a protégé of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and trusted assistant to Abu Faraj al Libbi, al-Qaida's third highest-ranking official before his capture in 2005. While at first they had no luck figuring out his true identity, the BBC reports four years ago they caught a break. They figured out his true identity and two years later, they found the rough location where the courier and his brother lived in Pakistan.

According to a report by the Guardian, once on the ground, the Americans realized the mansion was not a normal residence. Valued at around $1 million, it had no phone or Internet connection, and the 12-18 foot high walls were topped with barbed wire. Access was severely restricted and the main structure was three stories high but had no windows. What was also suspicious was that the brothers had no known source of income, and there was another family living with them -- a family whose description matched that of bin Laden's. 

In September 2010, the Guardian reported the CIA presented President Obama with their findings, showing bin Laden could be hiding in the compound in northwest Pakistan. By February the CIA were confident it was indeed the place, and the President convened 5-9 (depending on if you talk to the Guardian or the National Journal) National Security Council meetings to discuss the matter. On the last of these on April 29th, 2011, the president gave the go-ahead.

More coming.

Thanks for the video link, Pulp. Some of those carpets look like they would be pretty nice after they are dry cleaned. I wonder if there is going to be an estate sale.

An amazing accomplishment by an extremely competent squad. Bless these guys...they have a dangerous job, but just go and get it done. They blew up their own disabled helicopter, policed the area, and got the hell out. Amazing.

I enjoyed reading everyone's comments...then, it hit me: Pulp, All That Glitters, Death Frog3, Christy, Virgil, Model Citizen...how will the world survive without their opinions, comments, and input on the world around us? I'm already going through withdrawal.

Iraq had nothing to do with bin Laden and there never were weapons of mass destruction. Bush and his Zealous stupidity go us into a long deadly war. Obama and his inteligence was able to carry out this mission. It's a mission that had to be done. Are we animals to cheer death? It was a mission that had to be done We had to get that Bastard to avenge the death of thousands! Hopefull this will not bring on more destrution.

OT: Did anyone notice at the White House cooresondent's dinner (Sat. night) that our Gov Rick Scott was at the same table as Donald Trump?

Find the video feed on your own, but after every President Obama's joke on Trump, Gov Scott (with bow tie) looked over at Trump as to reaction or non-reaction? Looked like a school kid seeing what his school marn would think about ridicule.....

Congratulations US military, CIA and Seal Team 6, thank you for making our day!

Obama is taking all the credit for having planned the entire Osama operation. What a joke. This guy is the biggest A-hole on the planet.

Side Note; Jim Walden was secretly playing hide the salami with Ali Waldman. Cowboy Ronnie went wacko and Hertz had to punch Ronnie out. They are all crazy as batshit.

The world wide hide and seek champion was finally found. Seal Team 6 has a unique way of tagging you.

I was at the UDT museum in Ft Pierce (Its really a cool place) they have a picture of a burning oil platform with the caption " To err is human to forgive is not our policy"

I dont know if celebrating his death in the streets is such a good thing (I am glad he's dead) but isnt this the type of behavior we see in the middle east after the death by terrorists of westerners?

I do feel like we as a nation have accomplished a great task

A post I saw from a friend on Facebook - Trump demands to see Osama's Death Certificate - new term coming - Deathers???

Great to see Navy Seal team 6 went to the right compound, if that was here in Broward could be a problem.

Bob, any new revelations in the BSO Steroid Scandal, the Sheriff is really spinning out of control over there with this cover-up he masterminded.

And they made sure he cant come back as a zombie. Always a good idea.Seriously, it is amusing how there are right wingers trying to give all the credit to Bush jr. And what was up with FOX misspelling "Osama" as "Usama"? In the long run, his death probably will not matter much. But mentally, for the nation it is the death of the rapist. It will bring with it at least a sense of relied.

I hope this is not smoke and mirrors! I really wonder when I hear things like "The terrorist mastermind was identified by "facial recognition" and quickly buried at sea". Why such a hurry to observe his religious beliefs when he basically shit on everyone elses?

Does this mean that the POTUS is not a secret Muslim who is trying to destroy the nation?

I'm hoping that we can all move over to the new space as one big happy family. To think otherwise... that we'd lose this community... is really sad - whether we grace this page, or the new space.

Let the conspiracy theories begin. President Obama is not taking much credit at all, other than letting this operation happen. Seems to be distancing himself from it and trying to give all the credit to the people on the ground.And that is how it should be.

Hey Isrealite,

Go back to LEO AFFAIRS or Elgin's site. nobody else is reporting on it

This was a great operation by guys that work in the shadows. Great job SEAL TEAM 6.

The reason they burried him at sea so quickly is to show the rest of the world that we did our job but are good guys too. We don't need to display his body. I am sure conspiracy theorists will be hard at work.

The reason Fox goes with Usama instead of Osama is to insult him, part of Bush's Psy Ops campaign. The same reasom Bush 41 pronounced it SAD-um instead of sad AM.

Now we need to be vigilant to look out for the retaliation attacks.

It has since been reported they also did DNA tests that have come back as a match.

Mainly to not give any family or religious zealots a way to bury this guy and create some sort of monument in his name... Plus, America may prevent some backlash by honoring bin Laden's burial traditions.

I guarantee death photos will come in the near future. Think back to Hussein's son and even Sadam himself. We all got the photos, as we will in this case.

Are you really that naive, Virgil? POTUS gave up ABL so he could divert attention from his real agenda- getting pita bread and cous cous on the subsidized school lunch program menus.

Tea baggers r pissed it cost trillions 0f $$$ to kill one guy. As if it will change anything here in the USA. It won't and there is the problem. This tea bagger says end all the wars now cause we can' afford them.

And that Bush II's Psy Ops team ran around insulting a lot of physicists with their NU ku lar.

DF3, I dont know about this. I'm not 100 % sure Bush II is bright enough for Psy Ops.

Go Navy Seals

Ok maybe I should say it was part of Cheney's and Rumsfeld' Psy Ops plan. But that is what the misspelling is about.
