Raw Video and Details of the bin Laden Raid

According to the LA Times SEALs from DEVRGU and some CIA Special Activities Division shooters and analysts flew a combination of four MH-60 Pave Hawk and MH-47 Chinooks from “an Afghan base” (Jalalabad?/Bagram?) to the bin Laden compound in Abbottabad.

About 40 troops, largely Navy SEALs, were involved, with 24 rappelling into the compound from the hovering Chinooks. Officials said the firefight was fierce and significant.

The raid lasted about 40 minutes (which seems to me to be a pretty long time on an objective that far behind the lines) and one of the helos landed due to mechanical problems and was destroyed on site.


Best line: The U.S. troops gave Osama what was described as a brief opportunity to surrender before firing several times, at least once into the head.

I bet…

    Just as it written in the book of david, it says: "But as for the offspring of the evil in the world, they will be destroyed on the surface of this earth".

    One news report said that he was sheilding himself behind a woman before they were able to smoke him! Some inspirational leader...living in the lap of luxury (multimillion dollar compound) and hiding behind a woman when the REAL badasses show up while so many have lived and died in abhorrent conditions following his cause. God bless the Navy SEALS and CIA shooters that completed this task and my thought and prayers are with the survivors of all the evil this devil spawn did in the name of religion!

    The mission was carried out like the plans. I think no expected the fire fight to last 40 minutes. It was a job well done. Amen.
