Remember What Gun Shy Told Ya??

In an earlier commentary, I threw the bull$hit flag when the White House released a statement saying that they lost visual with the team for about 25 minutes. Now we have this:

In the White House Situation Room on Sunday night, the president and his national security team watched a soundless video feed of the raid.

When bin Laden’s corpse was laid out, one of the Navy SEALs was asked to stretch out next to it to compare heights. The SEAL was 6 feet tall. The body was several inches taller.

After the information was relayed to Obama, he turned to his advisers and said: “We donated a $60 million helicopter to this operation. Could we not afford to buy a tape measure?”

So there you have it...they do have the video... great. It should be easy to take digital stills from it to show the oh $hit expression on Bin Laden's face, right before he got some SEAL assistance in returning to room temperature.

I have no problem with the fact that the team shot an unarmed terrorist, because after all, none of the thousands of people who died in the World Trade Center were armed either. Just sayin.
