About That “Firefight”– Unarmed Bin Laden Assassinated in Front of His 12-Year-Old Daughter
Turns out that “firefight” the US government claimed took place as Navy SEALs raided Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad, Pakistan hideout was really a slaughter. MSNBC reports that four out of the five people shot dead during the assault were unarmed. This is in stark contrast to the Obama administration’s original claim that the SEAL team came under “heavy small arms fire” in a “prolonged” firefight.
As the SEALs moved into the compound, they did come under small arms fire from a guest house. They returned fire, killing one of bin Laden’s couriers and his wife, who got caught in the crossfire.
A second SEAL team entered the main residence, killing a lone man on the first floor before running into one of bin Laden’s sons on the way down a staircase. He was unarmed; the SEALs shot and killed him on the spot.
Making their way to the third floor, the SEALs barged into bin Laden’s bedroom. When one of his wives rushed them, she was shot in the leg. The same SEAL who did this then turned his weapon on bin Laden himself, who MSNBC says was unarmed and dressed in pajamas. He was shot once in the chest and one in the head. The New York Daily News reports that his 12-year-old daughter witnessed the assassination.
After the SEALs finished their grisly hit job, they gathered 22 women and children, restraining the women with plastic handcuffs, and left them all for Pakistani security forces to discover.
It was far from the intense firefight the Obama administration claimed. It was a brutish extrajudicial whack job totally unbefitting a nation that claims to pride itself on adherence to the rule of law.
