Last night it emerged that President Obama had given the Navy Seal units orders to take extra precautions to identify Bin Laden clearly.
This led to one Seal being asked to lie down next to Bin Laden’s corpse to gauge the Al Qaeda chief’s 6ft 4in frame.
that is just plain ridiculous..i though they had DNA proof ...
and they still goofed it up,by having a power cut,which ment everyone for 10 miles was outside,and then by allegedly crashing a helo,even tho locals at the time said it exploded in the sky,and having to send in a rescue team.

According to FOX News, George Bush single-handedly flew to Pakistan and killed Osama in hand-to-hand combat.
Now the brits are just trying to take his glory away.

Bound to crash a helo at least once when fighting a war alone... hey but at least the brits trains wont go boom anymore. Thank you seals for saving the UK, and thank you brits for donating a map... as always you have proved useful in war. Just like ww2, how you guys defeated hitler and all.
Bin Laden was located by British signals intelligence experts in a series of caves at Tora Bora in the White Mountains, 25 miles southwest of Jalalabad; but the assault on the caves was badly botched and risk aversion mentality won the day. A combined force of SAS and SBS commandos was just 20 minutes behind Bin Laden, but they were pulled off to allow US troops to go in for the kill. It took several hours for the Americans to get there, by which time he had escaped.
