    Details of SEAL raid on Osama compound revealed - Story - World - 3 News


    Couldnt rappel into the compound and had to go floor to floor blowing their way through from the ground up. I would have thought one of the kooks would have been strapped with explosives before being taken out and been pretty worried once the initial plan failed. so much for the element of surprise.


    also, if the pakis had come they were going to hunker down and fight til we negotiated a deal to get them out.

    bin Ladin had gotten complacent. He was so worried about the $25 million reward that he literally trusted only two couriers. He had no bodyguards at all, which surprised the CIA and is one thing that made this plan so feasible. And he surrounded himself with the families and children, which made for good cover possibly, but teenage wives make pathetic soldiers. His cover was very good, but once it was blown he was totally vulnerable.

    It has also been reported that they had a "fight their way out" scenario involving the reserve SEALS on the Chinooks. Either one could be disinformation. The SOF don't really like their tactics being reported. The spooks will muddy the water, too. They don't like the intelligence being reported and will have their own spin going on.

    yeah but theres far too much info out there already. whether specific details are omitted or not its far far farrrrrrrrrrr too much and any of this could compromise future missions and obviously lives.

    especially given these methods arent exactly from WWI and antiquated.

    supposedly 2 dozen seals on the remaining chinooks.

    so we just barreled in there crashing one and landing the other due to the vortex. then slammed through there for 15 minutes+. jesus christ, thats a lifetime. we were lucky in many respects.

    i was wondering why when obama knew 16 hrs prior his namesake was in the compound why he waited. now we find out we only went through with it because too many idiots were given the info. doesnt speak well of our idiots in the white house.

    The fact that so much detail continues to leak after this mission keeps lowering the Obama admin's grade.

    Dude gets an A+ for making the call but everything since has been an F.

    Mision complete. Make the announcement, show the photos of the azzhole with a hole in his head and answer any other questions about the mission with "It's classified".

    Don't these morons understand there are still more missions to be run in the future? Shut the F up and stop giving away our secret information.

    I don't see where any secrets are jeopardized. Sounds like seek and capture 101.
