Only One Lame Terrorist Got Shot Off On SEALs
Hey look, the White House's story changed again! (By next week, we will finally find out bin Laden had become an emo and slit his wrists two days before we got there.)
Administration officials said the official account of events has changed over the course of the week because it has taken time to get thorough after-action reports from the Seal team. And, they added, because the Special Operations troops had been fired upon as soon as they touched down in the compound, they were under the assumption that everyone inside was armed.
Yes, armed for a WATER FIGHT! These SEALs did not play fair!
When the commandos reached the top floor, they entered a room and saw Osama bin Laden with an AK-47 and a Makarov pistol in arm’s reach. They shot and killed him, as well as wounding a woman with him.
And after all that shooting, he still didn't have a gun in his hand? Makes sense. We assume Osama bin Laden is about as knowledgeable and experienced at shooting weapons as Sarah Palin and wasn't planning on renouncing violence as a means for change. [NYT]
