#5 Is it possible to give these guys the CMOH?

We must continue to hunt and kill people who advocate the violent destruction of our country. Too bad we can use this operation as a warning to Hamas and Hizbullah.

Who's next? Zawahiri?

#8 Has the New York Times published their name, home addresses, and that of their next of kin yet?

And yes - that is a serious question.

And apparently their mission was to kill, not capture Bin Laden.

#9 And apparently their mission was to kill, not capture Bin Laden.

The rumblings I have been hearing is that they were to go in and, if possible, capture. But dead is an acceptable outcome as well and the rules of engagement were almost zero in the building. Which means if it moves, or hides behind a woman, or is said woman, it either complies or dies.

#10 ROE: "Cut down their groves and vineyards, and plow their fields with salt. Make their wives widows and their children orphans. Collect all bodies if possible, take DNA samples if you can't. Take pictures. Recover all useful intelligence information. Leave smoking holes as needed. The Secretary may disavow all knowledge of your actions. Happy hour is from 2000-close. This ROE is classified."

#11 Picture of the downed helicopter. Looks like they clipped the wall.

#13 The nomenclature is SEAL Team Six, but that's exactly the sort of detail that I'd expect a journalist to get wrong.

#14 Congrats again to the FBI for promptly updating its records.

#15 since they probably not abloe too receive the CMOH, how about we split the 25 million reward between the members!

#16 > how about we split the 25 million reward between the members?

I must've been in business too long, as I thought, that'll just about cover the cost of the Helo...

#17 just take the helo cost out of the next AID check too pakiland! Especially since they have been hiding him for 10 plus years.

#19 I have never figured out why it was printed

#20 Is it possible to give these guys the CMOH?

I doubt it. It would make them targets. Perhaps they could issue a medal to the team and display it at HQ, if such a place exists?

Picture of the downed helicopter. Looks like they clipped the wall.

They blew it up. Given those guys' testosterone level, I'm surprised it didn't end up entirely outside the compound wall.

#21 These were LB drivers from the 160th.
The pilot probably smacked down a roof defense cell on his way out.
