Hey, watch the video (link below) and try to construct your own timeline.

"Last night (5/1/11), Americans learned that we carried out an operation"

"But just over one day before, no one was clapping" - does he mean, one day before 5/1/11 or before 5/2/11.
Because people were clapping on 5/2, therefore, a day before, would be 5/1/11 - That's when they killed him.
If he meant the day before announcement 5/1, then operation went down 4/30 US time, and 5/1 Pak. time.

"Last Thursday, 3 days before the raid" Obama was deliberating --> raid: 5/11
Friday morning, Obama gave command to go ahead --> 4/29

So, what I am getting from this is this the Timeline, according to the video.

Thursday, 4/28 : Obama is deliberating about the operation
Friday, 4/29: Obama gives OK
Saturday, 4/30: Operation went down
Sunday, 5/1: Late night announcement, Osama is dead.

Can someone watch the video carefully again and give me your thoughts.

Everything i've seen says it happened Sunday.
Which is the first of may.
Plus the guy who was tweeting live about something going on in a compound (his neighbor) in Pakistan.

Pakistan is GMT + 5 hrs aka 10 hrs ahead of Washington DC (Eastern Time zone)

One news report stated that a smaashed wall clock reading 2:20, which was 2:20 am, was in the debris left
after the raid.

This made it 2:20 AM May 2, which was 4:20 pm May 1 in eastern US

You can can play semantic games with difference in time zones - doesnt change outcome. Bin Laden still

Eh...initial news reports said the government waited a week before they went public and then only because the rumor mill was starting to rev up in the social media. Can anyone confirm this?
