Advanced technology is always a possibility.
Just out of interest have you ever seen a stealth helicopter? I know someone, whom I have no reason to doubt at all, who claims to have had one sneak up on him. Having worked around helicopters quite a bit I can't bring myself to accept it though. I've always thought he was mistaken
During the raid, Athar speculates that he was two or three kilometers away from the shooting that took place
Athar reported that one of the copters he’d heard had crashed and that the aircraft were not Pakistani.
Athar further reported that traffic was shut down in some areas, and the army had cordoned off the helicopter crash site.
The image, which now has nearly 2 million views on Flickr, has appeared on every major news website and turned up in countless newspapers and television broadcasts this week. But it’s also sparked questions (and spawned spoofs) worldwide. The most basic query: What is actually going on here?
To find out, let's start at the beginning, with the caption provided by the White House on its Flickr photostream (key phrase in bold):
President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden, along with members of the national security team, receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House
CIA director Leon Panetta has done his best to discourage them. He claims that there was a 20- to 25-minute blackout after the SEALs' initial "approach" to bin Laden’s compound, which would rule out the possibility of Obama's having seen the death of bin Laden on film at all, much less in this particular photo. Panetta’s exact words: "We had some observation of the approach there, but we did not have direct flow of information as to the actual conduct of the operation itself as they were going through the compound."
My comment there was...show me where official sources ever said they watched it live.
Did anyone in an official statement ever say they watched in real time? Or was that an assumption on some reporter or writers' part?
