Osama bin Laden's last words.

Bin Laden(54) shouted to his daughter as she rushed into his sleeping-room in his house in Abbotabat, Pakistan,: "Go downstairs again into your bed! ". His daughter Safiyah(20) were comeing up to his father in fear, because she already heared the US-Navy Seals blowing up the gate of the house 12 month ago. Then bin Laden said to his wife: "Do not switch the light on." A US- B2 bomber-plane would have destroyed bin Laden's house by 32 war-bombs, if the Navy Seals had been not successful in their mission of executeing this great terror-boss. The Seals also surched the garbage and the sanitary chanelisation of the house for the DNA-traces of bin Laden to consure his identity.

Odd, I thought his last words were, "Dang, SEALs really DO exist".

Video

The execution of bin Laden was recorded on video-transmission. The US-pesident Obama, his goverment-members, and high military officers saw the transmission.

So, I take it you were either able to intercept this transmission or got it from an internet source.

Now, I can believe that there were satellites/drones relaying what was going on from overhead along with verbal radio communication, but a live transmission to Washington, DC from a SEAL wearing a helmet cam? I don't think so.

As far as I know, the SEALS (at least some of them) were wearing helmet cameras.

However, I have seen nothing about the execution of Bin Laden being caught on one of those cameras. Much less that live footage was broadcast into the Pentagon and White House.

The participants in the White House Situation Room have all said the only live video they were watching was coverage from US drones circling overhead as well as listening to live audio from the SEALS and the Pentagon.

If you have found anything different, please post links and references.

That was not an execution, it was long overdue payback. Personally I think that his body should have been sealed inside the body cavity of a pig but we are far more moral than AQ or the Taliban for that matter.

Here is how it should gone down like some 70s movie.

OBL ie!!! American dog

NAVY SEAL: BAM (gunshot to head)

OBL: looks cross-eyed at the bullet hole. collapses in a tangle of limbs.

NAVY SEAL:Our long national nightmare is over
MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

In the end who cares what he said before his death. He was just the walking dead.
