Worst. Communication. Screw-Up. Ever.
Team Obama has changed the story again…
Yesterday, the head of the CIA admitted that there was no live video footage of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound as further doubts emerged about the US version of events.
So it’s not clear what they were watching…
The White House released this photo of the security team watching the raid on the Osama compound in Abbottabad. Now we know the feed was not working.

Now they say no shots were fired on the SEALs from inside the house at Osama’s compound.
The New York Times reported:
The new details suggested that the raid, though chaotic and bloody, was extremely one-sided, with a force of more than 20 Navy Seal members quickly dispatching the handful of men protecting Bin Laden.
Administration officials said that the only shots fired by those in the compound came at the beginning of the operation, when Bin Laden’s trusted courier, Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, opened fire from behind the door of the guesthouse adjacent to the house where Bin Laden was hiding.
After the Seal members shot and killed Mr. Kuwaiti and a woman in the guesthouse, the Americans were never fired upon again.
This account differs from an official version of events issued by the Pentagon on Tuesday, and read by the White House spokesman, Jay Carney, which said the Seal members “were engaged in a firefight throughout the operation.”
When the commandos reached the top floor, they entered a room and saw Osama bin Laden with an AK-47 and a Makarov pistol in arm’s reach. They shot and killed him, as well as wounding a woman with him.
Add this to the list.
