WASHINGTON — It seems to me that our government had vastly more intelligence on what was going on in Obama bin Laden’s ghastly hideout before sending SEAL Team 6 in last week than they are telling us.
(FYI – this is not a picture of the helicopter used by the Seal Team that got Osama)
Yet why did they need a second helicopter? They were only after one man. They could have popped him or snatched him, and been off. The answer is obvious.
