Well that's just a misuse of a cooking implement right there.  I hope they ran it through the dish washer a couple of times after.

That's not how it works.

The SEALs don't carry any sort of utensils at all. When they eat the hold the meat in their hands and rip it from the bone with their teeth. They probably sent the junior guy downstairs to the kitchen to find a spatula, used it, and then left it behind, because let's face it, a spatula is a pretty shiatty souvenir.

They should train that guy a little better then.  A spatula isn't what you want for picking up viscera. What you want is a ladle.

It's what I use... er... Would use...

You can't use a ladle on a floor. You use a spatula so you can kind of scrape things into little piles and then sort of flick it into the bag. I'm told that steel ones with a good edge work best, but I suppose if the Bin Ladens cared about their non-stick cookware this might not have been available.

Head shots are particularly gory...and I'm guessing they unloaded a lot of those hundred shots into his head...there was probably nothing left.

Trust me, when Obama farts a guy's face off, you don't want to see the aftermath.

Not just some steam, but 10 years worth of steam built up searching for one of the most hated men on the planet.

I call shenanigans.

I have a hard time believing Seal Team 6 would take time during an operation to burn through mags of ammo and I don't think they had another opportunity to do it on the helicopter or on-board ship.

"According to unnamed sources" sounds more like BS bragging by people not even involved in the op.

Personally, I don't care if it was 1 or 100 bullets.

The farker is dead either way and the world is a slightly better place for it.

FTFA: But an extreme degree of violence would explain why U.S. President Barack Obama's administration was so resistant to release a set of photos, for fear of a possible backlash against U.S. interests

I'll take "fark you, we don't reveal anything that compromises methods and sources" for $1000, Alex.
 
2014-03-14 01:03:25 PM
I think the right has a dilemma here. Since Obama was involved, they could be outraged that he sent a bunch of violent psychos over there. Yet they have no leg to stand with that accusation. Might come off a tad hypocritical.

/don't think that Special Forces are recruited from the Boy Scouts

It was an assassination and that is not what I believe in.  That said, I'm not particularly worried if they had to use a wet vac to put him the body bag.
 
2014-03-14 01:04:05 PM
But this is perhaps the most measured and polite description that one could give of how operator after operator took turns dumping magazines-worth of ammunition into Bin Laden's body, two confidential sources within the community have told us. When all was said and done, UBL had over a hundred bullets in him, by the most conservative estimate.

I cannot believe a team that was waiting for extraction after already crashing a helicopter would break discipline like that.  They were already pressed for time, the house was full of children, and they weren't supposed to be in Pakistan in the first place.  When were they supposed to play target practice with his body?

Hundred shots? I would hope the Navy SEALs have better fire discipline than the NYPD.

No it wasn't.  Unless you think a guy can organize and carry out an attack that kills thousands of people then just say "time out guys, I'm not playing right now".

To be fair, he was at home base. Everyone is safe at home base.

I use a spatula for an ince scraper for my car. Works great. Also used a spatula in January as a mixer for a plaster mix.

Spatulas... better than you think...

Nah, they need photographic evidence they got him. I'm guessing the head was all that was left.
 
2014-03-14 01:12:08 PM
Sounds like the sort of thing you'd do if you needed to fake an Osama killing. Mutilate the body beyond recognition, dump it in the sea at night. Nobody's any the wiser that he died in a cave years ago. Everybody gets to pat themselves on the back.

Have fun with that, conspiracy theorists.
 
2014-03-14 01:12:10 PM
I wouldn't be surprised if a some SEALs pumped a few rounds into him just so they could say they did it later, but I doubt it was 100+ rounds. They were still in the middle of an operation, and could have very easily ended up in a fire fight trying to get out. I don't think people that highly trained would be taking on that much added risk during probably the biggest mission in SEAL history.

Count me in on the "team don't give a shiat."

Farker's dead. Doesn't matter to me how many bullets they used, if they ran him over with a steamroller, or dropped an Acme safe on him. So long as he's dead, it's fine with me. If they used too much force, well, overkill is my favorite kind of kill.

Well, all previous reports were that he was unarmed.  I'd think a big fat American Seal could handle him.
 
2014-03-14 01:14:00 PM
I'm sure any other spec ops team like SAS, JTF2, whatever the Aussies have etc, would have done the same - I'm surprised they didn't shove a grenade up his ass and took a dump on his corpse afterwards.

Who.
the fark.
cares?

The circuses that would've followed were not worth it.

Millions would be spent putting him on trial and all that shiat.

Bullshiat.

"blah, blah, blah unnamed sources... blah, blah, blah"

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that SEAL Team 6 is a group of professionals that were well aware of the level of scrutiny that they would face after this operation and acted accordingly.

Or did he shave his beard, change one letter of his name, and become President of the United States? WAKE UP SHEEPLE!!!
