The most-discussed “revelation” in No Easy Day: The Firsthand Account of the Mission that Killed Osama bin Laden, by former Navy SEAL “Mark Owen,” is certainly Osama bin Laden’s status as unarmed when he was shot twice in the head by an American operator in his Abbottabad house. Not only was the al Qaeda leader and terror mastermind not holding a weapon when he was killed, but his guns weren’t even loaded, despite more than ten minutes’ warning – after a hard landing by a Black Hawk helicopter and a firefight at the guest house – that his compound was under attack. After bin Laden was killed, Owen writes, the SEAL “took each weapon down and pulled out the magazine and checked the chambers. They were both empty. He hadn’t even prepared a defense. He had no intention of fighting.”
in the red area, it is almost impossible to enter without getting detected, LOC has not only our guys patrolling and keeping watch but also Pakistanis. Assuming that GOI was informed even then it is difficult to get in and out of Pak airspace and then again enter the same. It would have caused alert right up to PAF and PA Chief level. For US, Pak is paid whore, plus all the radars are supplied by them, they had plenty of time to inspect the same and make it useless as they had months of time in their hand and they routinely check their equipment, as per their agreement with Pak. So their radar system on Afgani side was useless. If i was Uncle i would think more of OBL then to start India Pak war, yeah they must have through of escape route through India, if things get bad.
