Here is the Reuters headline: No resistance in “cold-blooded” U.S. raid: Pakistan officials
Osama bin Laden and his comrades offered no resistance when killed by U.S. special forces in a Pakistani town, Pakistani security officials said on Thursday.
U.S. accounts of what happened have changed throughout the week, and initial characterizations of a 40-minute gun battle have given way to officials being quoted as saying only one of the five people who were killed had been armed.
The White House has cited the “fog of war” as a reason for initial misinformation on whether bin Laden — who was shot in the head — was armed when U.S. Navy SEALs raided his compound in the Pakistani town of Abbottabad early on Monday.
Two senior Pakistani security officials, citing their investigation, said there was no firefight because the inhabitants never fired back.
“The people inside the house were unarmed. There was no resistance,” one of the officials said.
“It was cold-blooded,” said the second official when asked if there was any exchange of fire during the operation which, U.S. officials said lasted nearly 40 minutes.
Seems like our terror warrior allies are having a revenge hit.
New shrine forming at raided compound. So much for not allowing the body to be used as a shrine.
ABBOTTABAD, Pakistan – US efforts to prevent a shrine to Osama bin Laden were under threat Thursday as several hundred sightseers flocked to the house where the world’s most notorious terrorist met his death.
Pakistan officials said the compound in Abbottabad where bin Laden was shot dead Sunday already became a tourist attraction and that there were no plans to destroy the building.
“I can tell you for a fact that it will become a place of tourism,” said Dr. Muhammad Azfar Nisar, the deputy civil chief of the city. “People are already coming here from as far away as Lahore to see the house, so why should we destroy the building? The more revenue, the better.”
Of well, at least we don’t get the death photos, until they get leaked.
