I would agree. I think if they had the resources to their disposal, probably a day. However, one interest to note is that you can perform two types of DNA tests, mitochondrial and nuclear tests. During the briefing, they said, "Familial" DNA test - what is that?

From what I have read there was about 40 seals who conducted the raid, so you are right they wouldn't use only 2 helos.
With that many people conducting the raid they probably went in by air and ground (think blackhawk down). That would make more sense.
As for DNA tests are concerned. They can be done in as little as 12 hours as was the case of Saddam. There was even an article concerning this very same thing in his case.
So it is possible to conduct a dna test if you have a sample handy as we apparently did with Bin Laden.

Why haven't we heard more about this? I suspect it was a fraud intended to help police collect blood samples to be tested later. If there was any truth to the story, it must have become top secret for some reason.
