Excuse my ignorance but how can you tell from a picture if the killing was "execution style"?
A large exit wound right between the eyes would indicate he was shot in the back of the skull. You know, execution style.
Or shot in the back of the head while he was running.
Okay, we're talking about two different things. I don't think there's much of a chance he was put on his knees, faced the wall and shot in the back of the head. I think that they walked in the room and shot his ass as soon as they saw him even though he may have posed no threat at all and could have been taken alive. So maybe what execution isn't the right word for what I think may have happened. But you're right, if the pictures show what you're talking about, a blatant pablo escobar style execution, that would be bad.
Celebrating this victory by publishing a gruesome photo that we will be accused of photoshopping is not Obama's style.
I think he should just do an end zone dance
Who wants to see some dead terrorist jihadi mf'ers?
Raise your hand! I found some pictures.....
Inside bin Laden's Compound
Can any of you tell me about the helicopters used in this operation? The remnants of it in these photos looks like it was a bad mf'er.....the likes of which I've never seen.
Pics too, please.
It was reported early-on that there were four helicopters, two Blackhawks and two Chinooks. Apparently a Blackhawk went down.
But the photos of the tail shows a heavily modified Blackhawk, apparently. The disk on the tail rotor is not standard issue like this standard tail rotor:
The tail also appears to be much thicker than a standard tail and carefully contoured. All in all, it looks like some stealth features have been added to reduce the number of sharp, radar-reflecting angles.
Still . . . all those whirling rotors make it impossible to render a helicopter invisible to radar, but perhaps they have reduced the signature enough that distant radars can't resolve them.
