The parts of the downed chopper dont look right to me, is that the whole cockpit there? if it is then there must have been some really small people flyin it! Either that or its just something they made in the garage in a few hours to resemble a chopper.
Thus we can deduce the shooting down of this unknown craft
That crash landing might have been caused by a phenomenon known as “settling with power,” which occurs when a helicopter descends too quickly because its rotors cannot get the lift required from the turbulent air of their own downwash. “It’s hard to settle with power in a Black Hawk, but then again, if they were using one of these [low-observable helicopters], working at max gross weight, it’s certainly plausible that they could have because they would have been flying so heavy,” the retired special operations aviator said, noting that low-observable modifications added “several hundred pounds” to the weight of the MH-60, which already weighs about 500 to 1000 pounds more than a regular UH-60 Black Hawk.

I am in err, for I thought it was a full uav and I was just looking at it from a strange angle. I can see how it is in fact a tail section. However, it has to be a UAV.
The material composition and style of construction systems is that of something resistant to radar, and high altitude.
There is no camo paint, nor bother of the stresses of war. This looks to be a high tech, next-gen uav meant for high altitude.
That does not mean it was used for dropping. It could have been a spy plane.
Perhaps it was hit and out of fear of them running, they decided to go ahead and hit right away. This would also make sense because staff photos of the operation show obama half-dressed for the occasion, as if it was unplanned and sudden.
And you know what, maybe it is some sort of drop ship. It is not outside the realm of possibilities that these men landed via a high altitude drop and then evacuated via some ordinary means. My mind is telling me that I remember reading something about having to take an alternative evac route.
What we know is this. No Americans were lost. And that wreckage looks to me that someone ought to have died. The only solution to this, which matches it's look and typology, is that it was a UAV. For what purpose, no one knows.
Thus we can deduce the shooting down of this unknown craft, likely a uav, necessitated the rush and sudden event that was this operation. Once the Americans knew that they knew they were looking at them, they needed to hit fast.

No one needs to create a new "stealth helicopter" thread, okay? let's keep all info in one place for sanity's sake. There already is one here from two days ago...www.abovetopsecret.com...

Is that a waterpistol?
IT IS! Nice catch! star for you. Now the real question: why are terrorists harboring Bin Laden carrying water pistols???
What a crock of #.
Maybe because he had CHILDREN in the compound?
Or does your brain just forget to work sometimes?

. They did hit the place, and there was a fire fight. Ergo, the dead men were terrorists. You don't have to look abnormal to be a terrorist. That's the whole reason we're losing our rights. Because it's impossible to tell.

I have read the linked Army Times article about this being a blackhawk variant but I have yet to see any photos of this variant.
