How the Navy Seals Botched the Osama Raid


Here's a portion of an insider's account of the raid on Osama Bin Laden's villa:
[...] At 1:46 AM local time we crashed through the door of Osama's bedroom. Smith yelled, "Freeze! Osama Bin Laden, you are under arrest. You..."

Bin Laden moved toward a bedside table. Smitty fired a warning shot. It missed, striking Bin Laden between the eyes.

"You have the right to remain silent."

Bin Laden complied and was buried at sea.
