#1 In a secret CIA prison in Eastern Europe years ago, al-Qaida's No. 3 leader, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, gave authorities the nicknames of several of bin Laden's couriers, four former U.S. intelligence officials said. Those names were among thousands of leads the CIA was pursuing.

I would love to find that "water boarding" interrogation so hated by the left wing whackos lead to this information.

#2 FTA: "Obama tapped two dozen members of the Navy's elite SEAL Team Six to carry out a raid"

SOCOM "tapped", Obama authorized. He made a decision, it took him how many months?

Fox News now reporting the shots were a classic 'double tap'. One to center of mass, one to head.

#7 "Bin Laden's body was washed and placed in a white sheet."

I'd have washed him in pig's blood and tossed him naked into the drink, with a couple of barbells chained to his ankles and neck just to be sure.

But that's just me.

Anybody remember the "Highlander" series/movie? I've got a great fantasy - Osama bin Dyin' was an immortal, so he woke up underwater, and lived awhile as the denizens of the deep nibbled on him, before he finally succumbed to the pressures of the bottom of the ocean that crushed him like the cockroach he was.

#9 "Bin Laden's body was washed and placed in a white sheet."

This is the burial custom for run-of-the-mill muslims, not the same as that for martyrs.
