SEAL helmet cams recorded entire bin Laden raid


(CBS News) WASHINGTON – A new picture emerged Thursday of what really happened the night the Navy SEALs swooped in on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.

CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports the 40 minutes it took to kill bin Laden and scoop his archives into garbage bags were all recorded by tiny helmet cameras worn by each of the 25 SEALs.

Officials reviewing those videos are still reconstructing a more accurate version of what happened. We now know that the only firefight took place in the guest house, where one of bin Laden’s couriers opened fire and was quickly gunned down. No one in the main building got off a shot or was even armed, although there were weapons nearby.

The SEALs first saw bin Laden when he came out on the third floor landing. They fired, but missed. He retreated to his bedroom, and the first SEAL through the door grabbed bin Laden’s daughters and pulled them aside.

When the second SEAL entered, bin Laden’s wife rushed forward at him — or perhaps was pushed by bin Laden. The SEAL shoved her aside and shot bin Laden in the chest. A third seal shot him in the head.

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee went to CIA headquarters Thursday to view photos the SEALs took of bin Laden’s body.

Mos 8541, hi, yes, you’re right about the repercussions of it, I would think that If they didn’t think about it when they agreed on that very dangerous mission, there is something wrong about the PRESIDENT,
but the fact that they implement the extreme security answer the question,
but there is a big responsability to be held accountable if not if, as they said but ” WHEN” the consequences will happen, and like you let us know, that it will be the people who will bare the the eye of the storm,
not them which are being Guarded constantly, but all the STATES WILL be touch by it, THEY MUST BE WARY OF THAT FACT
SO it’s realy like the same with all his decisions on every thing he does,
which is, I decide to do it, no matter what, and the rest of you all cope with the aftermats,
and he just leave everything for others to figure the rest of it,
