The Ever Changing Bin Laden Story Changes Again…
It appears now that only one of the five killed in Sundays raid that took out Osama Bin Laden was armed, according to a Sr defense official. According to this source, Osama’s courier fired upon the Seal team as they entered the compound but was quickly shot and killed. The Seal team was not fired upon again the rest of the time they were in the compound.
This new information is in stark contrast to the story told earlier in the week that Navy Seals encountered heavy resistance in the compound.
“There were many other people who were armed … in the compound,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said Tuesday when asked if bin Laden was armed. “There was a firefight.”
“We expected a great deal of resistance and were met with a great deal of resistance,” he (Carney) said.
“For most of the period there, there was a firefight,” a senior defense official told Pentagon reporters in a briefing Monday.
According to this AP story, the majority of the 45 minute operation was collecting computers, hard drives and other intelligence information.
It’s also being reported today that Bin Ladens “mansion” was not worth a million dollars, but roughly around $250,000.
