Well it is possible that they paid for info and it is likely that the Pakistani ISI was playing a double game and attempted to sell OBL for some other favour. What passes for reality in Pakistan is like some weird conspiracy fiction in a normal country. The important bit is they killed him without losing any SF guys.

What the F does it matter? He's dead.

How that was achieved stopped being relevant when the original news cycle died, and Obama was re-elected.


It might matter because of who was "in the room" and, we should assume, "in the loop" with President Obama when it all went down ... she's campaigning for election next year.


It is ill that men should kill one another in seditions, tumults and wars; but it is worse to bring nations to such misery, weakness and baseness
as to have neither strength nor courage to contend for anything; to have nothing left worth defending and to give the name of peace to desolation.
Algernon Sidney in Discourses Concerning Government, (1698)

Important for books by Navy SEALs, video games and movies.

OK. I'll give you the Joe Biden card. Well played. >:D

Actually, I don't think that will be an issue WRT Clinton's electability. However, Benghazi will be.
It's hard to win an argument against a smart person, it's damned near impossible against a stupid person.

And from the "apple not falling far from the tree" file ...
Quote
Growing up, Hamza Bin Laden had some big shoes to fill.

His daddy, Osama, was a world-famous piece of human garbage. He got to live in caves, and had a really long beard. He even had a giant stash of porn all to himself. Everyone wanted him dead. In fact, the FBI put a $25 million bounty on his head. Then, in May 2011, that head was split in half like a log by a big, scary Navy SEAL before his daddy’s corpse was tossed into the ocean.

Now, little Hamza is all grown up and determined to follow in his daddy’s footsteps. Last week, the prodigal son released a 10-minute audio message accompanied by footage of past terrorist attacks. In it, Hamza calls on followers to attack Jews, Americans, Westerners, and Russians, just as his daddy had done. “If you are able to pick up a firearm, well and good; if not, the options are many,” he says in the video, which was obtained by SITE Intelligence Group.

The recording is part of a series of videos that Hamza has been featured in recently, according to experts interviewed by CNN. In fact, it appears that he is now being groomed to become the new face of al Qaeda ...

I read that last week.  Hopefully Seal Team 6 will be able to arrange a Father/Son reunion in the not too far distant future.
I'm just like the CAF, I seem to have retention issues.
