I thought there was a 40 minute firefight? LOL
Aboard two Black Hawk helicopters were 23 SEALs, an interpreter and a tracking dog named Cairo.

I agree. Shooting an unarmed man in his underwear is not something I would necessarily be proud of.
It was supposedly a modified Blackhawk. When configured for it, they can fit about 12 - 15 people, maybe a couple more, but that is probably with the seats taken out. I find this part of the story pretty fishy.
Imagine if your 1 of those seals & you've just captured the most wanted man in the world & nobody believes you,you'd be heart broken but sadly thats what they have to put up with.
One of the waiting Chinooks flew in to pick up bin Laden’s body, the raiders from the broken aircraft and the weapons, documents and other materials seized at the site.

Hmmm, yeah......and which helicopter supposedly hoisted the bin Laden body away? Did a second chopper land so the bin Laden carcass could be loaded on, or was it airlifted from the ground with cable....LOL
