Bin Laden dead after 90 seconds

But Seal Team 6 apparently isn’t happy about how the pollies have treated them since.

The men who killed the al-Qaeda chief have decided to speak out because they are tired of their “shabby treatment” by politicians who claim they were on a “kill mission”.

They insisted there was no lengthy gun-fight in the compound and claimed they would have captured Bin Laden if he had surrendered, The Sunday Times in the UK reports (behind a paywall).

They were not on a “kill mission”, they said, and fired only 12 bullets in the entire operation.

As for “Bert’s” last moments?

After pushing his youngest wife in front of him and then reaching for his AK-47, two SEALS “each fired again: one shot hit his breastbone, the other his skull, killing him instantly and blowing out the back of his head.”

  1. Hi,
    This is not that surprising, but I’m appalled at the way the media has portrayed this event, and of course some politicians. But I would like to say to the guys involved, a very good job done, I think it all turned out for the best.

    “I think it all turned out for the best.”


    If these men (SOCOM) had been involved in a ‘lengthy gunfight’ (translation from media speak, the bogies shot back more than a little), this uneducated commentator imagines they’d have called in air support. Starting with 30 mike mike. Working up.

    God knows I would have (though I’d have skipped the 30mm). And I’m a huge fan of PGU-14B…

    You can DNA ID a body from a hair.

    Osama Bits Missing, would have blinked. And then caught a rather high Mozambique drill.

    With men like these, its a reflex action. We’ve spent years training them to react exactly this way.

    They did.

    This uneducated commentator hopes the exact location of where we fed the deep sea crabs is never revealed.


  2. Good stuff overall, agreed.

  1. No trackbacks yet.

Surely you're thinking something...
