    How many more stories is the white house going to come up with. For goodness sakes, we had to sit and watch these important people watching it go down and they still can't figure out what story will stick. Sorry Anderson but this whole thing smells. Former CIA say Bin Laden died many years ago. They call these made up things false flags. Thanks for the questions you asked though. You and Shep Smith from Fox were the only two people questioning the story. It didn't happen. What occured Obama's ratings.

    Anderson can the media please STOP asking questions about details of the Bin Laden killing, we do not need to know for our own safety. I think we know too much already, the name of the seal team should have not been given, worse the name of... their commander, we are putting these men and their families in danger. Please ask your peers to leave the details alone, we know the end result was done let's move on and stop giving the enemy more information that they could use in the future. Thanks

    It's fool hardy to get mired down in minute detail. We as the public will never know every single thing that happened during that raid but in the end does it really really matter? The end result was osama bin laden got what he had coming and that is all that truly matters. Now the talk is turning toward was it legal for the United States to kill bin laden? Of course it was and everyone in the world knows it was!! The United States Government shouldn't falter and get defensive on this issue, the rest of the world has always known what would happen to osama bin laden when the United States Military caught up with him.

    Why don't we go in and get Gaddafi just like Bin Laden.

    Our leadership from top to bottom has become nothing less than The Jersey Shores of politics and reality TV. The real danger to the people of this nation and of the world trickles down from the hill, not a compound in Pakistan or hillside in Afghanistan.

    We have all seen graphic and gruesome photos of our beloved president, John F. Kennedy, at the time of his assassination. The photos of Bin Laden will be no different. Americans have the right to view the body of the man that killed so many of us. It is no different than family members witnessing an execution of the murderer of their loved one. At the very least, Obama should allow the family members of 9/11 to view the photos in private, for those that need it.

    "He moved toward a weapon" as if UBL didn't have enough warning to arm himself sooner? He didn't want to be captured so he forced the Navy seals to shoot him twice. Clearly the orders were shoot to kill, not capture, and sadly that only played out UBL's end-game to martyrdom.

    They are making this operation skeptic for sensible people. Is it some sort of fake operation ? No official is confident about what happened ? As they are claiming it a real operation they why didnt they arrest unarmed Osama instead of shooting him. They do not want to disclose any secrete information from Osama ?
