Obama Watched Live as Osama Bin Laden Killed
President Obama was reportedly able to watch a live video feed of Navy Seals gunning down Osama Bin Laden.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, one of the Seals had a video camera affixed to the top of his helmet that beamed back the live feed to the Situation Room at the White House. Obama watched, along with Vice President Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and others, as Seals shot Bin Laden through the left eye.
The Daily Mail writes:
The Seal then carried out what is known in the military as a ‘double tap’ – shooting him again, probably in the chest, to make certain he was dead. The footage of the battle in Bin Laden’s Pakistani hideout – relayed to the White House by satellite – is said to show one of his wives acting as a human shield to protect him as he blasted away with an AK47 assault rifle. She died, along with three other men, including one of Bin Laden’s sons.
