They said that when the Navy Seals reached the top floor, two women were in front of bin Laden, trying to protect him. One Seal shoved them away, fearing they might be wearing suicide bomb vests.
Right. They kept suicide belts readily available around the house – just in case they needed to protect Osama and the kids by blowing everybody up.
The White House originally told us that Osama pushed his wife into the line of fire as he blasted his rifle, while Obama watched it live. The White House was unaware that they weren’t actually watching the firefight which didn’t actually happen.
And no doubt special ops forces are trained to run towards people with suicide belts. What could possibly go wrong with that?
Another source involved in the operation said bin Laden appeared “scared and completely confused” in the moments before he was shot.
They couldn’t see if he was armed because it was too dark – but they could see that he was in his underwear on his bed, looking scared and confused – when they shot him in the head.
