Bullshiat.

The article claims the operators took turns doing mag dumps into his body?  I doubt it.

scottydoesntknow: Superjew: Chris Ween: It was an assassination and that is not what I believe in.

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.


Maybe, but did he yell, "Ollie Ollie Oxen Free!"  Because if he didn't, then home base isn't safe.

MrBallou: scottydoesntknow: Mugato: So they were blowing off some steam. Boys will be boys. Are we supposed to be outraged over this?

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.


I don't really believe this either.

Then how would you have wanted the operation to go down ? " Gee Mr. Bin Laden, you'll have to come with us now " ?

Well, all previous reports were that he was unarmed.  I'd think a big fat American Seal could handle him.


Almost any pinniped could have by that point

One of these days, around 2075, some woman is going to go through her late Father's old Army things in his attic and find a small jar of something in formaldehyde, with "Obama's Left Nut" written on the label.

Put it in this context.  If an LAPD cop sees a suspect, do you want him to shoot the guy or arrest him?
 
2014-03-14 01:30:52 PM
i kind of don't think this guys would just sit there and unload lots of extra bullets when they were still in a place with lots of enemies with loaded weapons.

Sure firing a bit into him to "make sure he was dead", I can see but I find it doubtful that in the middle of a mission where there are lots of heavily armed guards they would just be unloading rounds and wasting time and ammunition.

It could happen I guess just seems it is unlikely to me.

If the guy personally orchestrated (and claimed responsibility for) the killings of thousands of people all over the world, I really would not have a problem with it.

You can't compare what happened to OBL to random suspects on the street and doing so is disingenuous at best.

Yeah, put me in the "bullshiat" category.  No way they wasted time and ammo they might need later, and made that much noise just for kicks.  Everybody taking a couple shots? Sure.  Hundreds of rounds? Not a farking chance in Hell.

If there were ever a way to provide an example of semantics, this is it.

It was an assassination.
There are rules in combat, and the US followed none of them in terms of how this particular leader was taken out.  How could we have?  There was NO open combat going on there.

Not to say it was wrong, of course.  Some assassinations are necessary.  But don't try to make it look like there was any sort of combat going on at the time he was killed.

You don't seem to understand the meaning of "context" if that's the analogy you're going with.

Mugato: 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


Why would the right give a shiat what Seal Team 6 did to OSB 's body? It's not Obama went into stealth Putin mode and did this himself (if it is even true).

The left on he other hand is trying to find someone to be outraged about the overreach of the military on the battle field because. No one who understands how the world works gives a rats ass.

MrBallou: I have a hard time believing Seal Team 6 would take time during an operation to burn through mags of ammo


Assume:

Rate of fire of maybe 900 rounds per minute? (15 per second).

200 - 300 bullets fired, point blank, into the body.  Enough to pulp it.

That's total of only  13 to 20 seconds.

We aren't talking about wasting 20 minutes here.

At least three of us should do that.

Also the fact that I was never in the military should really get the conspiracy theorists going.

"They had dudes who were never even officially in the military taking souvenirs of all three of Osama's testicles."
 
2014-03-14 01:36:57 PM

Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: 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 has a new assignment in the CIA.  Everybody gets to pat themselves on the back.

Have fun with that, conspiracy theorists.

Your context is a false equivalence.  Bin Laden is an enemy combatant, not a suspect, not an accused.  He's a verified international target.  Your context is closer to 'An LAPD cop sees Jeffrey Dahmer on the street after he's escaped prison, bought stock in a refrigerator company, and sent out several videos of him at the dinner table screaming "DUDES ARE FARKING YUMMY."'

Now, the optimal response can still be 'yanno, I'd prefer he be picked back up professionally and face the full response of the justice system.'  However, if he gets scrubbed by the LAPD at that point under the suspicion that he's out grocery shopping, well... it's a bit harder to get worked up.

That's what I think as well.  They were in a hostile territory knowing their time on the ground was very limited.  They DEFINITELY did not want to fight any Pakistani military or police forces that may have responded.

At worst I could see each one shooting the body once just so they could say they did.  But that seems very unprofessional by a group that is extremely professional.

I don't buy this story at all.

2014-03-14 01:42:18 PM

Nutsac_Jim: I beleive they officially buried the bag at sea.  Probably even took a few pictures to make sure it was legit.

I also beleive they had a couple frogmen in the water to retrieve the bag and take it over to the helicopter carrier.   to keep later, just in case they needed to prove they had killed him and not some other clown.


IIRC they also too DNA samples to check as well.

They probably used depth charges after they buried him at sea just to be sure.

IF...  The videos of him claiming responsibility were proven to be Fakes, to this day the FBI doesn't have any evidence linking him.  Bush and Cheney openly laugh and Joke about the thousands they are responsible for killing in Iraq.
