Straining To Understand The Osama Tale – You Say What Mr. President?


“I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I’m not sure you realize what you heard is not what I meant.” Robert McCloskey

There was a firefight. There was no firefight. He put up a fight. Bin Laden had a gun. Bin Laden didn’t have a gun. Bin Laden was reaching for a weapon. His wife was used as a shield. His wife tried to protect him. They are releasing the photo. They are not releasing the photo. The wife died (another woman did die). The wife lived. The son Khalid died, no it was the son Hamza who died. The administration watched the attack in real time. There was 25 minutes when they didn’t know what was going on. The helicopter crashed due to mechanical failure. We (the WH) didn’t say the helicopter crashed due to mechanical failure. And now, the CIA says there was no live video. After hearing about the live video for days, THERE’S NO LIVE VIDEO.

“The head of the CIA admitted yesterday that there was no live video footage of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound as further doubts emerged about the US version of events.

Then what were they watching?”

The White House released this photo of the security team watching the raid on the Osama compound in Abbottabad. Now we know the feed was not working. Read more here: No video

I think they were watching snow on the screen. That makes me crazy too.

Update: On the serious side – from Special Report, Fox: Charles Krauthammer said it would have been better if the WH had let the Pentagon handle the release of the information. Stephen Hayes said the WH is giddy over all the information they have obtained from the raid and the hard drives they secured. They have already sent a drone into Yemen based on the information.
