Unless someone has broken their secrecy agreements, we probably don't know the truth about what went down, and besides: first news reports are always wrong (although I like this one). Did they fly helicopters disguised to look like the Pakistani choppers? Did they spoof transponder codes or other responses so that Islamabad ATC thought they were Pakistani? Did the US pilots answer calls in the native language? Did some key insiders in their government know? The team was apparently on the ground for 40 minutes, enough time for them to scramble a helicopter to check out what was going on. We have pretty good reason to believe that much of their intelligence services, the ISI, is on Bin Boy's side, so that they would have warned him that an operation was on the way, and by the time our guys got there, he would have been somewhere on K2.
Sounds like it went as well as a complex operation can go. No one was injured. Captured lots of evidence. And whoever it was who did the double tap followed training perfectly (anyone worth shooting is worth shooting twice). Everyone is reporting it was the SEALS; Seal Team Six, which officially doesn't exist any more. My bet is it was a combo of SEALS and Delta, probably with some CIA guys - the "All Pro" team of special ops. Whoever it was, I really only have one thing to say: Thank you. Well, a few things: Thank you. God bless you. Well done.
It's probably inappropriate to say, but since this is relatively anonymous: I used to be a seal. I have only one picture from my training days, which I release with some trepidation.
