I'm with Boncho. I actually saw this aired on television some weeks ago or so, and I was under the impression this was all re-enactment. Some of the
aerial shots of the thermal cam could have been real, but I highly doubt the government would have released any of this footage.
On another note, I did not agree with the idea of killing Bin Laden on the spot, if he was not posing a threat. And that seems to be the case. This
was a kill mission, plain and simple. I would have loved to see him captured and brought to trial in the US. I don't think the government would have
let that happen however, because then things may have become apparent that they did not want the public to know. And Bin Laden knew too much for this
to happen. He could have told the American people things about their government that he personally knew, and they could not have that either.
I bet he was surprised that the US came into Pakistan to kill him though. I'm sure he had contacts in the Pakistani police and military that would
have alerted him of a joint US Pakistani strike. This is all if he was even alive to begin with. With his condition early in the last decade, I don't
know how he could traversed the mountains as well as he did to even get to a safe house. They say he was on dialysis, which is something difficult to
accomplish in the rugged terrain of Afghanistan and Pakistan. I recently heard that he was living in safe houses, and never in the mountains for an
extended period of time. I don't buy this at all, seeing as how he got away from the US the first time. I don't know though, because our government
cannot be trusted to tell us the truth.
