A Composite of All Versions of the Raid That Killed Osama Bin Laden
Okay. With the aid of a lot of people too numerous to mention here, it’s the composite here of having read everything, here are the various claims and versions of the story of the raid. There was a firefight. There wasn’t a firefight. Osama was resisting. He wasn’t armed. The SEALs thought he was reaching for an AK-47 at arm’s length that remained at arm’s length even after he heard the chopper land and after he heard the first shot. First shot took place on the first floor. Osama is up on the third floor. The AK-47. He’s in his underwear or pajamas or some such thing. He used his wife as a human shield. He didn’t use his wife as a human shield. His wife was killed. There were three wives in there for six months, along with him in there for six months. They accuse us of torture. He didn’t use his wife as a shield.
She ran at a SEAL who shot her in the leg but she’s okay. Some other woman was used as a shield by somebody downstairs, don’t know who she was. She was killed but maybe she wasn’t. But who was she anyway? Nobody knows. Bin Laden’s son was killed, unless it was some other guy. Bin Laden’s daughter saw him get killed. They were gonna capture Bin Laden until the problem with the helicopter, which was mechanical trouble, it did a hard soft landing, it crashed, it clipped a wall with the tail rotor, it had to be blown up. Parts of it were just carted off by the Pakistan military. They never were gonna capture him. It was a kill mission all the time. No, it wasn’t, it was a kill mission from the get-go. No it wasn’t. They were gonna capture him. The chopper blew up. No, the SEALs blew it up.
