Revealed: CIA agents lived next door to Osama bin Laden
(visit the link for the full news article)
In a startling revelation this morning, reporters were told that in the months leading up to the violent raid that ended Osama bin Laden’s life, CIA agents had taken up residence next door, in an attempt to verify the identity of a tall, mysterious man they knew simply as “Pacer.”
Even with a satellite hovering overhead and the use of infrared cameras, agents couldn’t pin down who the strange figure was, or why he never left the compound and the mission was ultimately called a failure.

We have no pics because Bin Laden died years ago and whoever they shot did not make a convincing OBL.

OBL: Oh you know the wife alittle angry like always and gotta take the kids to school.
CIA: well you know what they say "Marriage is like a phone call in the night: first the ring, and then you wake up"
Maybe in a movie....but CIA blend into whatever location they are in. They do not look like some Jason Bourne sticking out like a sore thumb. Many probably have no contact with their family for long periods of time....
In regards to the topic.....of course they were there...intel must be gathered first. HUMINT is a must in any operation...not sure why this is even an issue? It seems pretty logical to me..
Of all stories told in this drama....this is the most believable IMO. And I dont even buy most of the stories...edit on May 6th 2011 by greeneyedleo because: (no reason given)
