Editor's note: Howard Wasdin, a former member of Navy SEAL Team Six, speaks to Anderson Cooper about the elite military unit.
The iconic Situation Room photo shows administration members watching what must be a live feed. It must have been recorded for further analysis. A fair compromise would be to release some still photo from the live feed that shows UbL present but alive in the compound. The body was apparently washed before burial at sea, and there again video or photos must have been taken and they would not be gruesome but would provide closure. Radicals are radicals no matter what we do.
All the effort to make the raid and killing of Osama Bin Laden politically correct is a waste of time. How many of his
victims were armed, how many were able to be accorded a proper burial in accordance with their religious beliefts? Let's get on with it, I have no desire to see his dealth photograph, he is gone and we should be thankful for that. Stop making comments that are bordering on apologetic.
the helicopter that was used was not a blackhawk. if you look closely at the tail rotor of the wreckage, you will see its all composit fiber, the body is angled to reflect radar, the blades are composit fiber, theres a cover on the rotor head and theres no markings on it. not to mention they used enough fule to burn it to see it from the space station. is this a new stealth bird made for the specop. community? have a look at the pictures and compare it for yourself.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
