An unarmed Osama bin Laden was captured and then assassinated. The 12 year old daughter eye witness the event of her father. I thought Obama wanted to give Miranda rights to enemy combatants; in order to give these terrorist a chance in our civil courts. Capturing and ordering for an execution isn't Obama's style. Seems like a cover up to me.
(Daily Mail) Osama Bin Laden's daughter has claimed he was captured alive in his Pakistani hideout and then shot by U.S. special forces, it was reported today.
Arabic news network Al-Arabiya quoted 'senior Pakistani security officials' who said the 12-year-old saw her father executed and his body dragged to a helicopter.
A Pakistani official rejected U.S. accounts of a bloody firefight, saying: 'Not a single bullet was fired from the compound at the U.S. forces and their choppers. Their chopper developed some technical fault and crashed and the wreckage was left on the spot.'
Counter-terrorism official John Brennan had said. 'There was family at that compound, and there was a female who was, in fact, in the line of fire that reportedly was used as a shield to shield Bin Laden from the incoming fire.'
But last night, the White House said Bin Laden was not armed when a U.S. Navy SEAL confronted and killed him during Sunday night's assault on his compound.
The discrepancy between the two versions of events was put down to the 'fog of combat' by the White House.
Security officials said they did not recover any arms and explosives during their detailed search of the compound and the 13-roomed house, during which they removed two buffalos, a cow and around 150 chickens.
Over two days, the White House has offered several contradictory versions of events, including misidentifying which of Bin Laden's sons was killed and wrongly saying his wife died in gunfire.
Explaining the ‘mix-up’, a U.S. official said another woman had been killed.
White House press secretary Jay Carney acknowledged that Bin Laden did not have a weapon even though administration officials have said that the terror leader resisted during the raid.
Mr Carney said resistance does not require a firearm. He also confirmed Bin Laden was shot in the head and in the chest.
He added: ‘Bin Laden’s wife rushed the U.S. assaulter and was shot in the leg but not killed. Bin Laden was then shot and killed. He was not armed.
