Aug 1 - Inside the bin Laden raid: Navy SEALs 'never' intended on capturing terror leader

Turns out Osama bin Laden was wanted more dead than alive.

The Navy SEALs who raided bin Laden's Pakistani compound never intended to capture the terror leader responsible for orchestrating the 9/11 attacks, according to a new report.

The first SEAL to find bin Laden feared that two of his wives who were trying to shield the al Qaeda leader would be wearing suicide jackets. After shooting one of them in the leg, the SEAL jumped on the women -- in case they set off explosives -- in an attempt to save two other SEALs.

Although it turns out that neither woman was wearing suicide vests, that's when a second SEAL, out of the 23 who took part in the mission, shot the unarmed bin Laden twice.

“There was never any question of detaining or capturing him -- it wasn’t a split-second decision,” a special operations officer told the current issue of The New Yorker magazine. “No one wanted detainees.”

The White House has said that bin Laden would not have been shot had he immediately surrendered.

The first shot -- a 5.56mm bullet, struck bin Laden in the chest, according to the magazine. As he fell backward, the SEAL fired a second bullet, a round that hit bin Laden in the head right above his left eye.

On his radio, the SEAL shouted, "Geronimo, Geronimo, Geronimo," mentioning the name of the operation.

After a short pause, the SEAL said, Geronimo, EKIA" -- initials for enemy k!lled in action, the magazine reported.

Back in DC, Obama paused and said, "We got him."

The new details on the top-secret bin Laden raid, his k!lling and subsequent burial at sea emerged today in an 11-page recreation published in the magazine, which hit newsstands today.

Members of Team Six had quietly entered Pakistan on 10 to 12 occasions -- including parts of South Waziristan -- before the raid in Abbottabad on May 2, the magazine reported.

Most of those missions were focused on the country’s remote tribal areas, although the a.ssault plan in Abbottabad marked the farthest special operations troops had ever ventured into Pakistan.

Once national security officials in Washington, DC, determined that bin Laden was in the compound, they reviewed several possible scenarios to capture or k!ll him. They considered having special operations troops land outside Abbottabad and sneak into the compound on foot. They had also weighed tunneling under the compound. In the end, they decided on a chopper raid that included busting into the compound.

The SEALs, once on the ground, blew through several gates to get inside bin Laden’s hideout. The entire time, President Obama and his closest advisors were watching on a video feed in Washington.

The sound of the explosions, or of the crashing helicopter, drew a few “curious Pakistanis” to the home, the magazine reported.

A Pakistani-American translator who was part of the SEAL team told them: “Go back to your houses. There is a security operation underway,” according to the magazine.

Inside the home, the upstairs rooms where bin Laden slept were protected by a metal gate that blocked the base of the staircase leading to the second floor, making the downstairs rooms "feel like a cage,' the magazine reported.

Once he was k!lled, bin Laden's body was flown back to the Afghan city of Jalalabad, where a CIA officer and Adm. William McRaven, who had overseen the operation, could see the body, which was placed in a zippered body bag.

Once bin Laden's body was in US custody, officials went through the process of positively identifying that it was indeed the terror leader.

Photographs were taken of bin Laden's face and then of his outstretched body -- pictures that to this day have never been released to the public.

Bin Laden was believed to be about 6-foot-4, but "no one had a tape measure to confirm the body's length.

"So one SEAL, who was six feet tall, lay beside the corpse -- it measured roughly four inches longer than the American," an official told the magazine.

The SEALs then planned disposal of bin Laden's body on the basis of a similar burial they carried out for Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan, a top al Qaeda terrorist based in East Africa, in 2009.

Bin Laden's shrouded body was placed "on an open-air elevator, and rode down with it to the lower level, which functions as a hangar for airplanes.

"From a height of between twenty and twenty-five feet above the waves, they heaved the corpse into the water," the magazine said.

Days later, when Obama met members of the SEAL team at Fort Campbell, Ky., McRaven and team members walked him through the operation, using a red laser pointer on a three-dimensional model of the compound.

At the end of the presentation, the SEALs presented Obama with an American flag that had been on board one of their helicopters.

Good. What our perpetual a.ss justice system would have done to him in years, our SEALS did in a few seconds. Sometimes that's just the way to go.

My distrust comes from my lack of faith in our government. They pass legislation that is aimed against the American public, especially those in need. They put partisan politics over the greater good of America. Most members of both the House and Senate are in bed with some major corporation and actively and sometimes openly do their bidding. So whenever my goverment says something, I often take it with a grain of salt.

Be that as it may, I would also never claim to have inside knowledge or priveleged information. And because they pinned the 9/11 attacks on Bin Laden and al Queda, I would gladly welcome and praise his death. But I could totally see our government making this story up too.

You know damn well you would have said the pics were fake.

I think there is a huge difference between conspiracy theorists and those that just have a total disregard for the government. Whether or not Bin Laden is dead or alive, the fact still remains that we are wasting billions in Iraq and Afghanistan and our government has still not established why we are still in those countries and why we are unable to end either war. I don’t care if Bin Laden is alive or dead. It doesn’t change the fact that we are in a recession and during this entire debt ceiling debate no one came out and said we are wasting billions and need to stop these unjustified and overpriced wars.

So I’m sorry that I have total disdain and lack of faith in my rulers and the things that come out of their mouths. I mean look at how they handle our energy policies. They act as if coal and oil are the only means to power our nation. And our government often scoffs at alternative energy. Or an even better example is the entire marijuana debate. Cigarettes and alcohol are legal and both have been proven to be lethal when abused or misused, yet our government deems marijuana to pose a greater threat to our society? That is some bullsh*t right there.

So I will concede and say Bin Laden is in fact dead and we can bury this issue. But I still hold firmly to the belief that our government is corrupt and does not act in our best interests and has lied to the masses before, and will continue to do so until we demand our justice.
