Interesting thing to note is: The gentleman in the Video who claims to live next door and takes walks by the compound daily said that you can't even get in that area without showing your ID and answer questions as to why you are in that area?

I believe that they killed him.
However, there are problems in the "official" story. Here is a good one, so simple. Go to the wiki on Bin Laden. His death is listed as May 2.
They announced it May 2. Did it HAPPEN May 2?
As Obama continues to politicize and mine the takedown of Osama Bin Laden and the outrageous "Islamic burial" that followed, new details emerge of his reluctance and refusal to sign off on the mission. It is the height of hypocrisy and crass opportunism to draw out the release of the death photos so as to prolong the news cycle on the story, and to neglect the tornado-ravaged parts of the country -- instead, Obama campaigns at Ground Zero on Thursday for an "O-victory lap," while it appears that in fact Obama had to be dragged kicking and screaming to the OBL operation.
A: I was told – in these exact terms, “we overruled him.” (Obama) I have since followed up and received further details on exactly what that meant, as well as the specifics of how Leon Panetta worked around the president’s “persistent hesitation to act.” There appears NOT to have been an outright overruling of any specific position by President Obama, simply because there was no specific position from the president to do so. President Obama was, in this case, as in all others, working as an absentee president.
a push to invade the compound for several weeks if not months, primarily led by Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates, David Petraeus, and Jim Clapper. The primary opposition to this plan originated from Valerie Jarrett, and it was her opposition that was enough to create uncertainty within President Obama. Obama would meet with various components of the pro-invasion faction, almost always with Jarrett present, and then often fail to indicate his position. This situation continued for some time, though the division between Jarrett/Obama and the rest intensified more recently, most notably from Hillary Clinton. She was livid over the president’s failure to act, and her office began a campaign of anonymous leaks to the media indicating such. As for Jarrett, her concern rested on two primary fronts

I just wanna know why there wasn't this same fervor with Bush's Iraq war and the blatant lies. That whole country is wrecked for the forsee-able future and everyones fine with it.
Maybe because with what Bush had done and failed to do, peoples hopes were high when Obama entered the stage. Then as big as Obama was on the stage he ended up acting just like the old boss, and disappointed everyone with false hopes.
So, what we end up with is disillusionment and less faith than the little we already had in government. Now everything the government does is a conspiracy.
Time for huge change, but what kind of change is the million dollar question? Maybe I should have said trillion dollar, million is so outdated these days.
