Bin Laden Not Armed and Wife Not Killed: White House Backtracks on Official Account of al Qaeda Raid

At CNN, "Bin Laden unarmed when killed, White House says," and New York Times, "White House Corrects Bin Laden Narrative."

That's a really big lie, that Osama resisted U.S. forces. And why? The administration didn't want backlash against targeted assassination? How lame? The president's been doing so well. I didn't think I'd be going back to calling him "Obambi" so soon. Sheesh.

And from Jimmy Bise at Hot Air, "The Story Shifts on the Abbottabad Raid; UPDATE: Carney Revises Again, Says There Was “Resistance” from bin Laden." (Via Memeorandum.)

ADDED: Well, maybe this was just epic incompetence. See Michelle, "Brennan and the bin Laden story bungle":
Why the changes? As the famous situation room photo shows, Brennan was in the room watching the raid video along with President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and others.

He probably disclosed more than he should have and it’s possible his betters were forced to walk back his comments for opsec reasons. What’s your best, good-faith guess?
I'll update if I find more info, but my best guess is that the White House embellished --- as if our Spec-Ops guys needed that?

They at first claimed he was using her as a human shield. Aside from the terroristic action he and his orginization took... Should we oppose all that resist globalism--headed by the U.S.? How does one go about opposing without terrorism, perhaps by toppling their Governments that are 'in bed' with various forces?

I sense this whole "Obama killed Osama" thing is on the verge of unraveling.

I may be wrong in the end, but to date, none of this shit passes muster with me.

Not even a little bit.

And don't forget that this former community pisser-offer sent his butt-buddy comrade Herr comrade Erich von Holderenovich (who I hope to see swinging from a rope someday) to destroy the life of a SEAL who merely popped a camel-washer in the lip.

And also don't forget that this fucking fraud of a POTUS and CIC blew off America and addressed the Arab world on TV before the chair in the Oval Office was even warm.

Obama is an America-hating Muslim commie puke, and he and his fellow America-hating commie puke supporters can all rot in Hell for all I care.

BTW: I have a cousin who was a SEAL officer.
