If you reread the whole exchange it might make sense, but it would be the third time rehashing that same line of argument and I dont want to. That specific post was for that specific person.
Someone else already posted a link and a clip of the material in question. Its not earth shaking news. Its just that the early reports spoke in such a way that made it sound as if the raid took place days before Sunday at first, then they made it clear it was earlier that day the raid took place.
The person it WAS directed too was intent on accusing the person who brought it up of trying to say that the media reported the raid days before Sunday, which is utter tosh.

I just feel the need to add, that i live in the UAE, for those of you who do not know what or where that is, it is a Muslim country. i myself am not a muslim but a British Christian,but i can guarantee you that there is no such thing as a traditional muslim burial, it is the same burials as the rest of the world, either in a graveyard or cremation. So do not be fooled by this sea burial as being a muslim tradition. It is also said that muslims cannot be buried in a non muslims graveyard and vice versa. The only time a muslims is said to be buried at sea is if they were part of a sea vessel and there was no way to keep the smell out of the boat, so they are lowered into the ocean (in a coffin or not, im not too sure) with weights attached so that the predators of the sea do not feast upon the person immediately. i have also found a website where i can prove this to you, and im sure if you take the time to do some research for yourselves, you will find this is true as well.

Here's something that stinks pretty good.
This information is in the MSM news stories, go read them:
-- The raid took 40 minutes, whereby gunfire was used to take out 2 men and a woman on the first floor.
-- Then Bin Laden and 10 other people were found on the second and third floors of the building.
-- Several children ran from the SEAL team while they were entering the upper floors, getting past them to safety.
-- Bin Laden's wife rushed some of the best-trained soldiers the US military has on the payroll, yet she gets off with a flesh wound to the leg.
So tell me, people, why was it that Bin Laden THEN decides to reach for a weapon, causing him to be shot in the face? Is he a heavy sleeper?? Was it only THEN that he was aware that there was a 40-man SEAL team in his house, guns blazing??
If I heard gunshots coming from the floor below me, I'd be all over my kalashnikov like a wet Tshirt, wouldn't you? At least a couple of those soldiers would have taken some serious 7.62 fire before they got me, if I were in that position.
Heck, I'll send you to one of the stories: One of the stories
It gets even better...I didn't notice this detail before, but the 2 couriers and a woman killed, were killed in the CROSSFIRE? What crossfire? Where are the enemy casualties - the ones who were shooting? Who was shooting at the SEALs and how many rounds were flying to nail 3 people in the CROSSFIRE!!!??? Holy hell Bin Laden IS a heavy sleeper.
