Logic dictates that if the unarmed Osama was shot because he may have been wearing a suicide vest,

his wives and teenaged children that were also present and fully capable of wearing and deploying a suicide vest should have been shot AND KILLED also.

They weren't.

Why not???

One wife and the 13 year old daughter were in the room with OBL when he was killed. The highly trained team shot the wife in the leg ( none too effective a way to deal with a suicide vest ) and the 13 year old was not shot at all (even less effective against suicide vest).

I do understand why they have to push lies to a point where its becoming obvious to the world
that anything the government said .. is RUBBISH and ridiculous

i dont like that indeed when they think we are all going to swallow their illogical story
i have enought of this bullcrap

they have changed their story ... now they dont even know what to say anymore.. but they dont care
it will be us who will be labelled traitor to the nation if we start saying we dont believe them

what about you ? do you like what they have said so far .. does it seem all logical to you ???

this OBL death story if even far more obvious that its a cover up story compare to the already abvious 9/11 event

Osama the worthless pork-eating swine should have been killed just to say the American people millions on a cortcase that Eric Holder would have loved to have. The American department of Justice is now lead by another worthless muslim fearing socialist, just like his boss.

Did anyone actually read the story. It's the statement of John Brennan, the chief US counter-terrorism adviser. It's NOT the statement of the intel unit briefing the SEALs, or their team leader, or anyone else on the team. He probably had no part in the planning and execution of the operation at all.

Yet, once again, ATS seems to be taking this story and runnign with it.
Try a little research first.

I think that's why there are so many stories out there. Loudmouth government officials just wanting to be in on the big deal, and they start flapping their tongues (hey, did anyone know they were SEALS? Nope, not until good ol' Joe Biden started to run his suck).

And the press is just as guilty. Check sources? Nah, takes too much time, just run the story!!!

I saw a car get shot up at a checkpoint in Iraq. Dad and two kids dead.

Vehicle was packed full of explosives.

Hmmmm.....may want to rethink your statement. Thank you.

Kill order most likly came when the helicopter went down. Imagine two six man teams planning on a raid and six are presumed dead due to crash. Order for capture would go out the window and escalation of force would take place to kill all threats. If the next step of escalation of force would have taken place it would of been air strike. And even if the other six man team was not killed they would of had a new order of destroy secret silent helicopter. I think the stealth helicopter titles is miss leading. I believe you have a case of silent running helicopter. The use of a silent running helicopter would allow a fast approach and repealing down ropes on each floor of the building. Then you have a assualt on each floor at the same time. It does not make sense to land in the court yards and then you have to climb a twelve foot wall. And you would still have to break down the door to get in. Best way would be land on the roof, deck and ground then assault all at same time. And dropping in with least amout of barriers as possible between targets plus you get to divide there forces and isolate them in seperate locations.

Get a source that says the dog wasn't.

If they were worried about explosives, logic would dictate that they would take the dog where they thought explosives would be.

In that case, logic would dictate that each seal would have his own dog...or at least each of the four 6-man teams. These seals didn't all follow in a 24-man single file line. Each was assigned different quadrants of the compound. Which team had the dog?

No. As an ex officer, I can assure you that one dog is enough to cover a pretty pretty good area.

lol I remember going through the checkpoint in Sarita. A dog alerted on a truck two lanes over. Was funny to see the BP agent being drug across the roadway.

Who said they had a dog? The special forces guys I have known hate dogs on missions.

Why argue whether or not bin Laden should have been killed? This raid was not going to end any other way due to the likelihood he wasn't alive to begin with. If people want to believe he was inside that compound, then that is certainly their choice, but keep in mind that the media throwing little tidbits out to the public to create controversy over whether or not we should have fired on bin Laden is a good way to distract from information that implies he was never alive.

Of course they were ordered to kill him. Can you imagine a drawn out trillion dollar trial and the uproar that would cause. Actually he went out in a Religious tradition. You know the one that says " eye for eye, tooth for tooth, and life for life" he knew the consequences all too well. He is the one that led the way for the world to return to ancient forms of justice. Why do you think eveeryone is discussing and threatening retaliation.

Make a list, send it to the White House. The MSM are running out of excuses for them. Things like....

1. He had a dirty nuke in his closet
2. He had bad breath and was talking in the commandos general direction.
3. He may have had a dirty butter knife tucked into his butt crack.
4. Killer rabbit!

no never mind...

i think another kind of fog is responsible here IMO

Now the WH says that the Navy Seal's Video of OBL raid was "blacked out" for 25 minutes

as fellow members often say:

"pics or it didn't happen."

but seriously and i address this to all of ATS:

why all the fuss?

this and Saddam's treatment and execution are GOOD things.
yes, really.

it's called "setting the precedent".

rest assured, many posting today, on this site,

will live to see the day Prince Shrub, and King Oreo get the same treatment.

so don't make the mistake of putting yourselves in Osmana's shoes,

empathy is for living things,

not for creatures/products of Anti-Life.

Seal teams are arguably the premier special operation operatives!

My question is: Why would Seals trained in counter terrorism, extractions, and closes quarter combat, make the rookie mistake of killing an obviously high intelligence target that is unarmed. If Bin Laden is the leader of al-Qaeda, he would have been captured and interrogated. But then, human rights advocates would demand to see him to verify that he is being treated in accordance with the Geneva Convention. Since he was "killed and buried at sea", there will be no one asking if he is being treated fairly.

dropping bombs or sending a drone would not have detracted from from the recent murders of 3 of Qaddafi's grand-kids one was 6 months old baby

[perhaps he had a bomb in his crib?]*
