    Fog of war? There was no fog, they had live video rolling. The White House just can't get their SPIN right!

    The White House Tuesday blamed "the fog of war" for conflicting statements in its recounting of the events surrounding the Abbottabad raid that killed Osama bin Laden, but the history of misstatements from U.S. government officials about various combat operations raises questions about whether briefers also were subjecting us to a counterterrorism strategy and not just completely confused in their initial statements.

  2. Bottom Line... Odumbo is a LIAR, PHONY, FRAUD, COMMUNIST... we should be skeptical of EVERYTHING he says...
  3. You can see they are trying to match their story to the video of the raid.
    Problem is that the raid was a mission to kill and it is hard to explain why the woman is dead and why an unarmed and all alone Osama was killed.
    In a war battle this behavior would become criminal.

    There is nothing remarkable about the soldiers involved giving differing stories during their debriefing, eye witness accounts of rather ordinary events typically differ, much less those of high stress events.
  5. This whole event was on video and also being watching in real time by the CIA
  6. Should such special forces tactics necessarily be made public for all the world, including the unfriendles, to see? Perhaps my memory is faulty, but when was the last time that special ops footage was released for public consumption? Whose side are you guys on, anyway?
  7. You guys are tiresome...
    I am not saying to release the tape....It should be used to make sure the Whitehouse can be more accurate with their press releases.

    At first Osama had a weapon and the woman was being forced to be a shield. All this would justify killing both parties.

    But then the Whitehouse had to stop lying and just admit this was a shoot to kill order. Its tricky since that would be an illegal order.

    The woman is dead because she was aiding and a bedding public enemy number one. Osama was killed needs no further information, good riddance. I just hope he was put to sea with swine entrails.
  9. Senior Pakistani security officials said Osama bin Laden’s daughter had confirmed her father was captured alive and shot dead by the US Special Forces during the first few minutes of the operation carried out at the huge compound in Bilal Town, Abbottabad. 

    The daughter has reportedly told her Pakistani investigators that the US forces captured her father alive but shot him dead in front of family members. 

    According to sources, Bin Laden was staying on the ground floor of the house and was dragged on the floor to the helicopter after being shot dead by US commandos. 

    “Not a single bullet was fired from the compound at the US forces and their choppers.

    Is this torture? If waterboarding is torture what is murder in front of your family
