Yeah, if anything its gonna get the al-queda angry, apperently britain and the USA have gone into high terrorist risk alert... oh well, if they attack us we can also show them what are ICS, G&G, TM, SRC, Ares or whatever you have can do, before we get shot

And whilst 'we' got him technically we could have had him in 2001 at tora bora, the sas/sbs weren't allowed to take the shot and had to wait for the yanks, by which time osama had gone,
All in all a good result, but still plenty of people on the Americans list to be crossed off

The yank special forces got lost in the mountains for two weeks because their GPS stopped working or so I've heard :lol:

I heard it was because they didn't have enough troops to cover the area, 100 or so were there when they had 10000's back at base and he got away through a passage way that was unguarded (Source = CNN)

Its good to see someone actually sourcing their quotes/knowledge for once, as opposed to whild accusation, though date/time/website address/newspaper would be good :P (yeah im predantic, doing history at A-Level atm and at Uni next year :) )

Military History Illustrated, 2010 (can't remember issue): Coalition Special Forces in Afghanistan. In a section titled Blunders - The One that Got Away, it was mentioned that one of the SBS teams in Afghanistan around 2003 had been given the job of finding and following Bin Laden. They had the chance to kill him, but were stopped. Bin Laden got away Reason?
The Yanks wanted to do the job themselves, but since they had such limited numbers actually taking part in the operations, none could reach the position until long after Bin Laden had run off.
Also mentioned in a first edition copy of Osprey Publishings elite series: Special Forces in Afghanistan. This has since been removed from the book, aswell as a collection of photos of UKSF (due to the UKSF publicity rules)

Is it true? Did the above actually happen? Who knows, but CNN are also reporting that the CIA has known about Bin Laden's final hide-away for three years.

Anyone seen the fake Osama Bin Laden twitter feed?

This wouldn't surprise me in the slightest - the reasoning behind it was probably sound though. CIA were probably trying to find the right time to eliminate Bin Laden - choose the moment when there would be fewer repercussions, and cause the least casualties in the "war on terror".

No source, Speculation based in logic :) woop.

I don't think you would want to move the moment you got the intelligence anyway. Why not keep it back for a while. Bin Laden will have thought he's pulled a good one and got away with it. He was there so long and may have thought how nothing ever came of things that 'could have got out' hence becoming more relaxed and over time he becomes more susceptible to attack. Just a thought?

Entirely agree with you Dev, he might have lowered his guard and made him more suspectable to attack (evidently), plus they might have had eyes on (either human or Drones/other surveillance) on the house to pick up on and track other suspects...?

There's no doubt they'll have done as much surveillance as they felt they could get away with. They'd have to be pretty thick to have just gone "I reckon that's his house" *sends in the "SEAL's"*.

Ah no offense taken. It does not bother me in the least.

My opinion on the matter is pretty much what walshy155's is. Its one more dead terrorist, 1000 more to go. I am not one of those overly sensitive post 911 idiots that gets so emotionally worked up that they cry at the mere mention of it. So his death did not really affect me that much. It's just one mission down and one less baddy that has to be worried about.
