btw you telling that guy to "get his facts straight" then you didnt actually say anything that contradicted his own conjecture other then your own
conjecture, hardly any facts present at all, nothing but opinion vs opinion.
According to the book, the Seals found out in early spring, and by that time the mock up was already built. Once they were in Afghanistan, the mission
was postponed one day because of cloud cover, since the drones would not be able to see through it. Also, they usually fly these missions when the
moon is darkest. So is that an unreasonable delay?
I really do not understand WHAT you are arguing here, it is not as if an attack was carried out while the mission was being debated. If anything, the
Intelligence Agencies and the Military are not to blame for any perceived delay, the blame for that falls on the politicians. The CIA tracked down the
driver and intercepted a phone call saying that he was working for his previous employer(UBL) in 2010, and that was what led to finding the compound.
Once again, even with the luxury of hindsight, what would have been prevented, or where is the advantage in taking him out earlier than they did? If
you are going to second guess something that was successful, at least come armed with more than conspiracy theories.
Also, I told the guy to get his facts straight because he stated that the author of the book Mark Owen left the Navy due to the repercussions of
writing the book when in fact he simply decided to call it a career and wrote the book after becoming fed up with conspiracy theories and dumb media
speculation. He dedicates at least 10 pages to how he was fed up over the details of the mission becoming public and the stupidity of many in the
media. He is not viewed as a traitor by his team mates, and claims to be giving most of the money earned from the book to charities that look after
families of fallen SEALs. The only people calling him a traitor have not read the book, he reveals nothing that is secret, and does not even mention
that the Blackhawks were of the stealth variety.
Also, you seem to be criticizing me because I read the book and refuse to spoon feed the facts to everyone... How is it my fault that I did the
backround research needed to comment on this thread? Why is it my responsibility to back up every statement I make when you can find out the truth
just as easily?
Furthermore, the reason they used the SEALs is because THIS IS WHAT THEY DO. This is the exact mission they train for day and night for years. You are
going onto foreign soil and need to get in/out quickly because there is a base right down the road, you send in the guys who specialize in this area,
a small elite team.
Also, it wasnt like they build a replica of the house with marble countertops. They had no idea of what the inside looked like, and they simply
stacked up containers to mimic the wall and the doors the teams would enter by. The only thing they knew about the inside of the home was the correct
assumption that it was split into two different areas, the top for Bin Ladens family and the bottom for the Driver or drivers brother. They only
really knew that Bin Laden always came out of the same door, and that no one but his family used that entrance. So yeah, how long does it take to
stack containers in the general layout of a building? A day or two is my guess. HUGE DELAY, CONSPIRACY!
